Out of the Vase

All around Flower arrangement

This idea is perfect for all those that like to think “out of the vase”.

Adding test tubes  to the bottom of the vase adds so much charm. There are so many creative directions you can go with this idea. I used a bouquet of assorted flowers in the large vase and then used those flowers in the test tubes. I think filling the large vase with  a solid color like white or green hydrangeas and color flowers around would also look so striking.

One day, I would love to try this idea with a large candle in the center vase (instead of flowers) with flowers around. Perhaps for a simcha.

You will need:



  1. Line the vase with the floral craft ribbon. You will need to tape a few pieces together to reach the height of the vase.
  2. Use glue dots to attach the test tubes to the bottom of the vase.
  3. Wrap twine tightly around the test tubes and tie a knot.
  4. Continue wrapping the twine around the vase a couple of times ending in a knot.
  5. Fill the vase and test tubes with flowers.
