Simple Centerpiece: Recycled Paper Bouquet Vase


You all probably already know from my sunburst mirror that I have an affinity for home decor made of recycled magazine pages. There’s something to be said about turning a material destined for the recycling bin into something beautiful that you’ll keep around for a long time to come. These paper bouquet vases are beautiful on their own, and even more so when single flowers are placed in the test tube bud vases dispersed throughout the vase.

I think I’m going to get one of these for my desk. It will be a place to put a few freshly picked flowers to brighten up my work day and an homage to my days as a newspaper and magazine designer. It looks like it would also make a great pen cup, although it might be hard to find them among all the pages.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of recycled magazine pages

Price: $25
