I love these Cobalt Blue bud vases from the DollarTree. I purchased 24 and not quite sure what to do with them! I really don’t want to spend money on flowers due to our tight budget. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can make use of these beautiful vases? Or add to it without spending tons of money.
Our wedding is at an estate-we are going for the vintage inspired feel.

@BIMDA9613: They are usually meantto place a single bud flower stem in. They really won’t serve much of a purpose other than flowers really.
But if you only have 24 vases that means you only need 24 stems….maybe you could go to your local grocery store and buy a few bundles of stems which shouldnt be too expensive if you are set on keeping them……I really don’t think they would look good except for holding flowers….sorry
If you aren’t wanting to use them for flowers maybe you should return them bc dollar tree also sells candle holders……

OMG I Just bought a set!!! I needed cobalt blue! 🙂 Thank you so much! 🙂 ! 🙂
PS You can put pinwheels in them. I am doing that for half of my vases. Also you can use Manzanita branches, wheat, pussy willows, or dowels with ribbons and bells attached.
Edit: You can also tie ribbon around the neck to dress them up if they feel plain. Or you can wrap them with twine for about a quarter of the jar and do a single ribbon bow tied around that.

At craft stores they sell a lot of cool dried flowers, branches, etc. You should take a look around that aisle at Hobby Lobby or Michaels and see if anything matches your wedding style.

Thank you ladies for the suggestions! I just loved the vases and kind of jumped the gun. I guess I should of really planned out exactly what I wanted for my centerpieces first and then go shopping!
Yes Surbian I love them they are awesome!

It might be too simple for what you’re thinking, but I love the cobalt vases with a single white daisy and a ribbon. It’s very inexpensive, but it just looks really clean and pretty together.

julies1949 : thank you so much for replying! But I don’t believe these are the same ones. At least I was hoping not. The original link doesn’t work so I was assuming it’s an old item. I saw this current vase already but unfortunately it’s not what I’m looking for 🙁
