I show my love and affection for family and friends by crafting homemade gifts and decorations. Recently we began planning a large outdoor party and wanted to decorate each table with a vase of flowers. Making these DIY Hawaiian beach glass vases using repurposed glass jars saved money that we could use on other areas of the party. Oh, and we were thrilled with how they turned out.
Hawaiian Beach Glass Vase
We made these Hawaiian beach glass vases for my second “baby’s” high school graduation party. I grew up in Hawai’i and graduation is a really big deal there. We give leis, lots of leis, for graduation.
And we throw parties and invite everyone we know to celebrate. And when you throw a party, you have to decorate. Right? My baby wanted to use these DIY Hawaiian Beach Glasses Vases filled with baby’s breath and sunflowers to decorate her party.
These Hawaiian beach glass vases are perfect for so many different occassions.
- Rehearsal Diner Parties
- Graduation Parties
- Sweet Sixteen Parties
- Engagement Parties
- Anniversary Parties
- Mother’s Day
- Any Outdoor Party
- Any Beach Themed Party
They’re a frugal way to decorate for a party.
- Uses repurposed glass jars that were headed for the recycling bin. Ask family and friends to help you collect recycled glass jars for you.
- Uses inexpensive paint.
- Uses inexpensive ribbon or raffia.
- Uses inexpensive flowers. Choose inexpensive flowers from the florist or cut them from your garden. The casual vases are perfect with wild flowers and mixed flowers.
- You can reuse these jars and create very different looks just by changing the embellishments and flowers.
I originally made these Hawaiian beach glass party lanterns for a friend’s daughter’s sweet sixteen birthday party.
Then we used these same upcycled jar party lanterns for my oldest baby’s graduation party. We put battery operated candles in the jars to turn them into lanterns.
Recently we added baby’s breath and sunflowers for my second baby’s graduation party.
Isn’t it amazing how a few simple changes can make such a big change with the same jars in each different look?
