I love fresh flowers. Especially fresh flowers that are inexpensive and gorgeous, at the same time. :) I came up with this fun little DIY to use as table numbers at your wedding or next party. It's easy and quick but the result is quite lovely. Depending on how many you make will determine your cost, but 4 only cost me about $15 bucks!

Here's what you'll need: 
Small Metal Tins
Floral bunches
Small spice jars (Ikea, or any other brand as long as they fit discreetly in the tin)
Black Paint
Number Stencils

I was lucky enough to find these cute little tins at Michaels for $2 bucks each. However, all you'd have to do is go to your local garden shop and buy some small galvanized tins. Run by Joanne's to grab some burlap, number stencils and black paint. Cut squares of burlap (about 4 inches by 4 inches), let fray naturally. Place your stencil on top of the burlap and blot black paint to create the number. Let dry. 
Once dry, go ahead and glue on with E6000 glue. I promise, it holds just about everything. 

Fill your little spice jar only half full with water.

Put your jars inside the tins. {easy right?!}

Cut your flowers down to size and start arranging them inside your little glass jars. Try to hide the edges of the spice jar and tin, but if you can't completely, that's OK, it has a very natural look no matter what. 

I hope you enjoyed this little DIY and try it out for yourself sometime. :) Have a great day!
