Make Your Own Vase Using Nothing But Concrete and a Cardboard Box

This DIY on the Subtle Revelry blog teaches you how to make your own vase using nothing but a container, a bag of cement and water. The product looks like a rugged concrete block -- minimalist yet rustic in appearance.

This cost-efficient DIY would be a fun experimental project for homemakers on a budget. All that is required is a bag of concrete and any mixing container, a cheap trash in this blogger's case. The mixture is then poured into cardboard boxes for basic vase shapes.

The blogger cleverly uses a single chopstick to make the mold for holding a flower. This particular DIY makes one tubular opening for an asymmetrical minimalist effect, but you can put in as many chopsticks as you'd like for a different effect. Each hole will hold a small amount of water to keep the plant stems hydrated.
