With Motherís Day coming up, fathers everywhere are looking for
something simple their kids can make for mom. There is a fun flower
vase that can be made with things that are around the house. This
project is simple enough that even young children can do it if they
Mom will cherish this one for years to come. I made one for my
mother when I was a child and she still has it proudly displayed in
her home, even though she has moved several times.
Soda bottle, I always used glass jars and bottles but I donít see
why a plastic one wouldnít work.
Brown Shoe Polish
Step 1: Remove any label, and wash bottle inside and out. Painted
labels are okay, make sure to remove any paper.
Step 2: Tear masking tape into small pieces and stick them all over
the bottle. Continue until the bottle is completely covered.
Step 3: Cover the tape with the shoe polish. Use thin coats, enough
to just color the tape.
Step 4: Let the shoe polish dry. Add another coat of shoe polish if
you want a darker color.
Step 5: Use plastic or fabric flowers. Putting water in the vase
will damage the tape.
Step 6: (if desired) Tie a nice ribbon or bow around the jar to
make it look like a gift.
