Paper Yarn and milk jug pull tabs

About a year ago I became fascinated with the pull tabs that seal milk containers and began saving them in a kitchen drawer. I was given a ball of R2 yarn made from nylon paper tape to use for a contest entry at my local knitting guild, KANV. It was a natural for the recycled pull tabs. I purchased an inexpensive glass vase at Walmart and crocheted a sleeve for the vase, seaming an edge on a rectangle hdc piece. I made many tiny bows and attached the pull tabs, easily done. My garden weeds look great here, don't you think? Stash buster and great gift idea too.
