I made these vases for end of year teacher gifts last year. I bought simple straight vases for a dollar at the dollar store. Instead of just wrapping the pencil crayons with a ribbon, I hot glued them right on the vases. One I did in rainbow colours and one I did in random colours. They were a big hit, with lots of oooh and aaahs!
