The inspiration for the vase came from the wreath I made for our front door. When I saw this one at diy kinda girl, I knew I had to have one of my own. I made the wreath following her directions pretty closely. I did use brown burlap instead of felt to cover my wreath form. I added a little Happy Birthday banner out of scrapbook paper for the big day. I loved my wreath so much when it was done that I wanted to make something coordinating for the inside. I decided on a large vase that could hold some flowering branches from the yard.
Because I'm cheap, I didn't want to spend money on my base, so I started with two empty green bean cans. These are the giant ones from Sam's Club. I used the can opener to open up the bottom of one of the cans so that it was just an empty tube.
