Twists of ribbon dress up clear glass cylinders.

    Clear glass cylinder vases, filled with tulips, take on a flirty, feminine quality with the addition of French-braid wraps, shown created in two ways. The same wrapping technique is used for each composition, but in the shorter design, shoestring bows are adhered with hot glue or double-sided adhesive at the spots where the ribbon intersects. The tall cylinder is finished with a four-loop bow tied at the bottom. Chevron-cut tails give each ribbon treatment additional distinction.

    The tailored effect adds style to the inexpensive vases, and they are great to promote as personalized gifts or for decorating at parties.

‘Upstar’ tulips from The Sun Valley Group; Cylinder Vases from Syndicate Sales; ribbon from Berwick Offray; Oasis® UGlu™ Adhesive from Oasis® Floral Products.

This design was excerpted from the book Ribbons and Flowers, which combines ribbons with flowers in 40 floral design projects for a variety of seasons and holidays, with easy-to-follow, step-by-step how-to instructions.
