    Search for an appropriate bud vase to act as your project’s base. Since it is the focal point for this project, the bud vase needs to be stylish.

    • Consider whether you want flourish or just a plain vase for your project. You may want to stick with a vase that has few or little adornments because the majority of the project will be covered by the bedspring.
    • Select a vase fits easily inside a bedspring.
    • Another option is to use a long, thin glass cylinder.
