This container is perfect for the center of a dining table. It is low enough so you can have conversation with the person seated across from you and wide enough to make a huge impact with flowers.
You need three things. A storm collar a galvanized cap and some Gorilla Super Glue. Oh yes, and two hands
Apply GG Super Glue around the bottom edge of the galvanized cap.
Attach storm collar to cap and allow to dry. You wont have to wait very long. The GG Super Glue is super fast!
Look at this... youre already done!
After that its time to fill the container with floral foam and fresh cut grocery store flowers. I also used some as candle holders. Ill bet there are many other uses for them as well! Can you believe the beautiful ruffled edge on this otherwise industrial piece!

Life was fast and furious this weekend at the Country Living Fair. In between seminars and presentations I managed to squeeze in time for some projects on the fly. This one is as easy as they come and made good use of the plumbing bits and pieces I had on hand. This floral container was part of the autumnal dining tablescape I presented on the main stage to a jam packed audience of fair going junkers!


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

The Country Living Fair was a blast - we made it through the heat, wind, and and a few speedy shopping trips!

I'd do it all over again!
