Cabbage Vase!

I sure do love the smell of eucalyptus.  So when I walked by a flower stand today and spotted a bunch, I  couldn't resist. And then I remembered something I came across as my daughter and I were browsing Pinterest the other day - a vase made with cabbage. I asked the florist for a block of floral foam, bought a red cabbage and ran home. 

This is my first test run of this concept but I look forward to making improvements with each iteration. And it was so easy! Here's how I did it:

I removed the outside cabbage leaves and cut the bottom to make a flat surface. Using a paring knife, I cut a square and dug out the cabbage bits with my fingers. It was not an elegant job and I felt kind of like vegetarian Fred Flintstone in the process but once it was done, I had a perfect space for floral foam. I wet the foam and placed it inside and then arranged the eucalyptus. Easy peasy!
