Turns out that recycled jars make excellent vases... for these 2 projects, I used old Nescafe jars (washed, dried and with the labels removed), sponged them over with glass paint and added some designs using contrasting coloured glass paint. The sihouettes were outlined with black sharpies.
The plants I selected are easy to take care and can actually survive only in water. Both plants have been in these jars for several months now - they seem to manage quite well without earth :-) To keep them perky, I add a tiny amount of coffee powder into the water.
