Marbled Test Tube Vase...

Marbled Test Tube Vase

I saw this idea on Pinterest and was very keen to try it myself. A while ago I bought some lollies from a shop and they came in plastic test tubes. I was reluctant to throw the test tubes out as I knew I could do something with them. I had several attempts at this vase as I wanted to give my friend one for her birthday. The first one was a disaster!! This is the second one, which I have kept, and the third one was really lovely, so I gave it to her. 

I have this hanging inside my front entrance and it encourages me to pick flowers from my garden. This flower is a rose-scented pelargonium and I have the test tube vase hanging at just the right height so you can smell the fragance as you walk past.
