I’ve seen some gorgeous plant vase/propagation vases at markets and loved them, so when I saw @whatstacyloves make one from a simple jar I knew I had to try it as soon as I could! I added some vinyl detail and I am so happy with how the vase turned out! I’ve read up on plant propagation a few times, but never really tried properly, so this was a nice little push to give it a try. Now I just have to patiently wait and see if I’m any use at the propagation part. If not, I’ll use it as a normal flower vase. I always find the opening of vases are too big and the flowers flop around, so this would work so well.
I think these could make lovely teacher’s gifts. Or any gifts really.
One of the things I’ve really loved about Design Space is the enormous range of images and projects that are available for immediate use with Cricut Access. It really does make adding that extra special touch to a project simple. All you need to do is search through the image library, find the one you want and cut it out.
Glass Plant Propagation Vase DIY
What you need
Glass jar with wooden/bamboo lid
Hole saw drill bit (Mine was 44mm)
What to do
Find the centre point of your lid. To do this trace around the top of the lid on a piece of paper. Cut out the circle, fold it in half and then into quarters. Trim a tiny corner off the centre point of the circle, just enough to make a hole that a pencil can mark through. Place the paper circle back over the lid and mark the centre of the lid through the hole.
Use the drill and hole saw to cut through the lid from the top. Gently sand off any rough patches around the hole.
