We're always looking for fresh ways to display our flowers, and we've turned just about everything into a makeshift vase (from mason jars to wine bottles). So when our friend Desiree Hartsock asked us to create something to share on her blog, we thought we would craft up a summery-style vase to brighten up the office. We're kind of obsessed with paper shoppe straws over here, so with dozens lying around they became the "pop" that would make this vase supercute and fun. With such a variety of colors and designs, straws make this DIY  easily customizable to your decor wishes. Easy enough to make a handful of, these vases could line any bridal shower brunch or accent a baby gender reveal party. And you and your bridesmaids can make a night out of adorning metal cans with colorful straws and filling your DIY  vase with floral arrangements. How fun!
What You Need:
- Large can (ours was originally a large can of beans)
- Paper shoppe straws — striped, dotted, or black-and-white if you fancy!
- Hot glue gun
- Pretty flowers — we are obsessed with Afloral's silk flowers that will last even when the party is over!

Peel the label off of the can.
Choose your straw pattern (so many options!).
Use the hot glue gun to place glue dots at both the top and bottom of the can.
Before the glue hardens, quickly and firmly press the straw onto the can where you placed the glue and hold for a few seconds.
Continue this process until you've circled the can with straws.
After making sure all the straws have stuck, plop in your flowers, and find a place to present your masterpiece!
