2-Minute Transformation! Stripe Up Your Vases with Electrical Tape

After months of picking flowers from the garden, you might be sick of arranging them in the same-old vessels. This easy trick can instantly give white vases nautical flare, it’s crazy-cheap, and it’s removable, too! Just buy electrical tape in the colors of your choice and wrap it around a group of white vases in random stripes. We took inspiration from buoys, but you could do a monochromatic stripe for a preppy look or go crazy with more colors for primary-hued fun.
