What to Make With a Rusty Spring

I love everything about rusty springs.

Test tubes wrapped in rusty springs
I cut an extra large rusty springs in half and screwed them to an old piece of drift wood.

After inserting 2 thin glass vases into the springs, I had the perfect rustic little vase stand. You can read all about how and where I found the rusty springs by visiting the bold link. It was an interesting story!

The only thing that could make this vase better is the very cool vintage tag I created using a graphic from Angie at Knick of Time.
