Little Pine Vases

Little Pine VasesOk, how cute are these Little Pine Vases ??? I’m so in love, I stare at them, looking so christmas~y and all…Β 

The other night, I wanted pine branches in the house. In Canada we had a lot of pine trees in our backyard so I would always snip off little pine branches to decorate the house this time of the year. I just love the smell of pine. I don’t have any pine trees or anything similar in my current garden, so the other night, my daughter and I went out for a little walk, looking for pine branches….. After a fun adventure at the park in the dark, we brought home a few.

I had been collecting a few of these little glass yoghurt jars and wanted to do something with them for a while and when I got the little pine branches I knew what to do!

I used my metallic markers, yes, I know, another project with them. I’m thinking of doing a year end metallic marker round up because I used them for so many ( I think) great projects! What can you do with a pair of metallic markers! Little Pine Vases !Β 

I used:

~ small glasses, jars

~ metallic marker

~ pine branches

I just put lots and lots of little dots on half of the little jar. Now, it looked more like a little vase to me.Β

On the other one I drew stripes, holding the jar in one hand, twisting it around and with the other hand holding the marker on the jar. Like that the stripes come out nicer I think…

I drew lots of stripes around the jar, overlapping and only on the lower part of the jar.

I thought, they look more like little festive vases than jars. Little Pine Vases !

    Love how simple these are to make Katrin. I have so many jars laying around ready to be recycled but perhaps I will hang onto a few and give them a new life. πŸ™‚ Thanks for partying with us at Talented Tuesday.

    Hi Katrin, I like the little jars you made. They definitely would make a great housewarming gift and I’m thinking of making some for a hostess gift at the next party we go to. I seem to have a hard time coming up with something small and meaningful. Thanks!

    • Katrin
      30/11/2015 at 12:31

      That’s a great idea Patty! They are so easy and quick to make!!! thanks for stopping by!

    These look great. I love the smell of pine too. It’s weird as for a lot of people pine reminds them of winter, for me, it’s summer. We always go bike riding at a local pinetum and tend to only go when the weather is nice. How funny is that?

      30/11/2015 at 12:16

      Yes, that is funny…But I can see what you mean, we have quite a lot of pine trees here, I just always associate them with winter and Xmas…Thanks Sally πŸ˜‰

    Your vases are so pretty and easy enough for most anyone to make. The pine needles against the gold is a beautiful contrast but I love that you can also change out for other seasons!

    • Katrin
      28/11/2015 at 20:37

      Yes, Amy, I like that I can use them later on for any other flower… Thanks for visiting, I’m happy you like them!

    These are so sweet. They are holidayish without screaming Christmas. You can use them all year round! I love pine branches, they smell so fresh and help to set the scene for the Holiday season. The pattern on the glass bottles are perfect, and you work wonders with those metallic markers, I am so inspired by your creativity!!! Happy Holidays my friend! xx

    • Katrin
      28/11/2015 at 09:10

      I can use them later on, with a flower instead of pine…yes, I love that too! The markers, Nikki, it became an obsession!!! LoL. Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

    These are adorable. I have never seen yogurt jars like this. I wonder if they sell them in the US. What brand are they?

    • Katrin
      25/11/2015 at 22:19

      Hi Susan! Thank you for visiting!!! There is a supermarket called Carrefour here and they sell them there, its their brand…. I’m sure though you could find something similar maybe at the Dollarstore?

    These are so beautiful Katrin! And from something so simple it is made over into such stunning pieces. Perfect for the holiday or any time orf the year really. Are your markers permanent, or are they just regular markers? My daughter had bought some and used them to write on t-shirts, but after a while they came off.

    • Katrin
      25/11/2015 at 12:38

      Thank you Mary! I’m glad you like them. They are very simple to make and yes, I used permanent markers. I’m not sure how they would survive the dish washer, so I’ll just rinse them carefully since they won’t be used for food.

    They look great! We have plenty of jars, not yoghurt ones but I’m sure they can do anyway!

    • Katrin
      25/11/2015 at 12:36

      Thanks so much Pili! Yes, you could use any kind of jars and I got the markers at the “tienda de veinte duros”, spanish dollarstore πŸ˜‰
