Don’t you just love flowers, especially during this time of year? I know I do. They can lighten up any room in your home, and looking at them can just make you smile. Personally I don’t buy flowers as often as I like, because I hate to see them dry up and die. I do better with faux flowers and plants, don’t judge me . I also enjoy crafts that incorporate flowers into them, like this hydrangea vase. This is a pretty “stained glass” project made with Gallery Glass. Holli Long designed this project. This craft project is a bit more advanced, and is an intermediate level craft. Welcome in spring by creating this lovely vase.
