Ice Cream Cylinder/Vase

Last Sunday my husband and I stopped at a yard sale and I bought 2 things. A necklace that had a pendant with the number "48" and a tall aluminum cylinder. At the time, I didn't know what the cylinder was but I knew instantly what I wanted to do with it.

After I studied on it for awhile I figured out the cylinder was the insides of an old ice cream maker. It stands about 12" tall and near the top is a "fill line".

I had an old band of burlap that I glued around the middle. I added twine, a button, an old key, and the necklace I had purchased at the sale.

I added some silk hydrangeas I had on hand.

At the sale the necklace was priced at $1.00 but there was no price on the cylinder. When I asked the lady how much it was she said "Oh, you can just have that old thing".
Lucky for me she doesn't "get it". hehe
I'm pretty happy with the results and it was real quick and easy to put together.
