Yesterday I briefly mentioned that I was getting crafty with some old jars and doing my bit to recycle.. here’s what I did ♥
I’ve been saving up old sauce jars, and the odd soda bottle, and I’ve got quite a collection. After I realised how many I had saved, I figured we should use these instead of vases. I had previously confirmed flower arrangements for coffee tables and cocktail tables from Olivier Dolz but now they are only going to provide the flowers. I figured, the jars look really cute and I’m recycling.. which means I’m doing something good and saving some money too 🙂
I’ve literally just wrapped lace and string around them. It took me about 30 minutes to do all of them… how easy is that!? Oh, and if you scroll down you’ll see a few pictures with flowers, this is just to give you an idea of what they might look like with real flowers on the day.
Where I got what…
Lace… I got my lace from Satwa. You can get lots of different styles and colours. I got 3 different patterns, at AED 4 a yard.
Jars… I have collected these over the past 10 months. they are mainly pasta sauce jars (we are not really a jam eating couple)
String… From my favorite Dubai store.. Ace Hardware. 😉
