In pursuit of a simple, fabulous, imperfect life at home.

Five Great DIY Vase Fillers

Vase fillers are little decorative items that you can display in a vase, bowl or urn.  They are a simple way to change up your decor seasonally, or just to keep a vase looking pretty on a shelf when you don't have any live flowers to put in it. 

I love them because they pair well with my tendency to tweak and re-arrange my decor on a regular basis.  What I don't love?  The price tag.  I was in a store recently that wanted 12 dollars for a bag of miscellaneous vase fillers!  12 stinkin' dollars!?

Today I've rounded up some great ideas from around blogland for making your own vase fillers!  Be sure to visit these great blogs and leave a comment there for the clever ladies who came up with these thrifty ideas!
