What do you think of when you see a thermos? Hot soup, warm beverages, and of course a great tailgating accessory. A customer came into the store today and shared an idea on what to use them for other than the common uses.
How about a vase? He told me of an arrangement he did for his 50's themed guest bathroom and how awesome it turned out. He used plastic flowers, but you could also use real ones. He didn't use any paint at all on the canister portion of it, suggesting you could to hide any visible rust.
Perhaps the next time you deliver flowers to someone or need to come up with a housewarming gift, look for a thermos and had a little twist to the arrangement.
Do you have any other creative ideas using the thermos? Feel free to post your pics on my facebook wall of your recycled (vintage themed) projects. I'd love to see what you've come up with.
