How to DIY a sunscreen container into a vase

The vase inspiration

The DIY inspiration for this came from a sunscreen container I was getting ready to throw away when I thought, “Hmmm,” what could I do with this?

The DIY Process

With a pair of scissors, I cut off the bottom of the tube. I guess you could call it the top, but you know what I mean. Seeing as this was an impromptu project, I didn’t sand it. I just needed to create something. If you want to make it permanent, I suggest sanding it slightly.

I spray-painted the lid silver and the body of the tube aqua blue. Both were painted using Rustoleum 2X. I forgot to take a picture of the paint, but you can get this paint pretty much anywhere. It’s my favorite brand.

Add water and flowers, and there you have it. How’s that for ridiculously simple? It holds water just fine and is great for smaller flowers. But as you can see, these are not particularly small flowers.

Keep an eye out for larger toothbrush tubes, catsup bottles, and anything with a sturdy base that can stand up straight. The possibilities are endless. Plus, there are dozens of container one can use for vases.
