Cute bedspring bud vase created using a bedspring from an old Sealy Mattress (for those of you who don't know bedsprings come in all different shapes and sizes and I have found that Sealy springs work best for candleholders and bud vases) and a small jar with a hinged lid.  The jar jumped out at me from the shelf at the local thrift store, and unfortunately there were only four of these and I have no idea what they came from, but I am thinking some food product, if anyone knows and could tell me that would be great.  Inside of the vase is a rose made from a recycled soda can that has had old sheet music mod podged to it.  Enjoy!

I'm interested in hearing more about the rose from a soda-can; do share! Posted: 11:58 am on February 25th
