DIY {hairpin vase}

UPDATE: Contest is now over, Emily’s is the last counting comment.

Contest Winner is: Carly Shoemaker – “Those pins are just wonderful, and so is the vase. I am always saving jars! On a spring evening I like to sit by the fire pit in our yard with my husband.”



Okay, here is the easiest craft ever….just in time for Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation Weeks!

Supplies: Glass jar, cute hair pin (get mine here), hot glue, Goo Be Gone

I think an old mason jar…the kind with the blue/green tint…would be awesome for this.

Step 1: Remove any labels or sticky stuff on the jar

Step 2: Hot glue hair pin to the jar…use scissors to hold pin open while glue dries. Hot glue will easily peel off the jar and hair pin at a later date.

(Try to find a jar that is similar in curve to your hair pin)

Ta da….a cute little vase to customize a billion ways.

For instance: Stick a leaf in the pin. Let the pin hold a small photograph.

Create a little gift tag and give it to your mom or your child’s teacher.

For business owners, slip a business card in.

You could do a ton of different things with this very basic idea. My hair pins are from a reader’s etsy store, Stella Bella Boutique.

Stella Bella Boutique is going to help you start your project…or you could just enjoy the hair pins the normal way – in your hair!
