Plectranthus in Macrame!

I am delighted with my "new" Macrame Vases - here with some indigenous Plectranthus flowers.
This is how they came about...

I found a couple of odd little macrame squares while thrifting! At first I thought I might use them in my bathroom as facecloths, but they took exfoliating a little too seriously! I decided to hand-stitch the edges together and then fit the macrame sleeves over some extra-large tumblers.
I am not sure what these were in their former life? Maybe some little place mats? But I am happy with what they are doing now!

Very clever! And so much nicer now than they used to be.

great idea for re-designing a vase or glass! Sunset Magazine recently posted some info doing something similar with bamboo placemats! But I really love the soft texture you got here!
