Well not really a misuse, let’s call it an alternative use. These 5″h x 3″d glass wall vases are looking good on the floral front. It’s a nice way get that classic glass floral vase off of the table and onto the wall. Our little planting elf Sommer has been creating these really fun baby cacti and succulent plantings in them. So… vase is now a mini planter, but still a vase? yes. There is a single nail hole that will support just about anything you put in it. Have fun, and plant well.
