We’re excited to introduce a new feature to our blog and social media platforms: Creative Re-use under 10. Whether it’s under $10 or 10 minutes, we’ll take objects and transform them into something more purposeful for your home.
Flower frogs come in various sizes, shapes, and materials (metal, or glass to name two). Commonly they’re used in the bottom of a vase or bowl to hold flower arrangements in place. They can typically be found at wholesale flower markets, decorators warehouses, online, or flea markets. And prices vary anywhere from $5 and up.
Using them to arrange flowers is fine and dandy, but what happens when you don’t have fresh flowers in the house? They take up space and collect dust. How about using them for something else instead?
Frogs with holes (as opposed to spikes) are perfect for holding makeup brushes, eyeliner, toothbrushes, or razors. Place them on a shelf or counter, and in under 10 minutes, you’ve got a unique way to display an otherwise dull object more beautifully.
Frogs with spikes can be used to hold cards, reminder notes, or hold up foam core boards (if you’re taking product photos like me! (In fact, the whiteboard behind the makeup brushes in the image below… is a piece of foam core board being held by a frog!
If you have a creative re-use tip that you’re proud of and would like us to feature, we’d love to see it! Send us a message with the details.
