Default Bud vase possible craft fair item

My husband wanted some simple, low-key way to give flowers to some of his coworkers when they've been especially helpful, so I made up some hanging bud vases that he could give them and then can bring them flowers from the yard as needed. It was a great way to use up scraps. I used a 6" plastic test tube (available cheap from Amazon).

That is so cute! I think it will really go over big with his co-workers.

They would make great gifts for bazaars, or quilting shows. Thanks for sharing.

I love your idea!

You know, I love to give flowers out of my garden to friends at church. That is a great way to bring them. Usually what I do is wrap them in a wet paper towel and then saran wrap covered with foil. But, your idea is greater and a nice place to practice FMQ designs.
