So, I decided to make this a DIY project....Here it Goes




I didn't take step by step photos, but its REALLY SIMPLE =)

Here are the Materials:

Vase
600-800 Bamboo Skewers
Colorful Sand
Ribbon
Button
Scrapbook Paper
Hot Glue Gun

Steps:

1.) Place sand in bottom of Vase
2.) Cut 3 inches of bamboo skewers with a reciprocating saw
3.) Add Bamboo Skewers
4.) Take a hammer and hammer all the bamboo skewers down a bit into sand (about 1 inch)
**** Be careful not to break them ****


5.) Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to rest just above the sand and hot glue into place
6.) Add ribbon and Button....
AND KNIVES....














There you have it.  Isn't it so cute and all for $10.00!!



I saw this project on Ion Life's: She's Crafty

She originally used a 2 liter bottle....but I wanted something as little more solid
and she also used sugar instead of sand......but I think that would have eventually attracted bugs

I have not seen those, I wonder if they'd eventually dull the knives? (I suppose no more than tossing them in a drawer though huh?) Thanks for linking up!
