IKEA Vase Christmas "Trees"

I’m finding all kinds of great uses for these infamous IKEA vases.  I used them to hold bar mixers on the Cocktails & Cheers design here and here, and now I’m using them to create little Christmas “trees”.  The shape is perfect for this and all you need are some adhesive gems, ribbon, and mini ornaments for toppers.  Water and green food coloring give them their color, while the gems are the “ornaments”.  Use them to fill any space that needs a little holiday touch!


For more inspiration, follow me on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook. Cheers!
