Cassette Tape Vase
Summer in the 90’s…what’s your favorite memory? For many it’s the TV shows, neon framed sunglasses and cassette tapes. Zima® is another 90’s icon you weren’t expecting to make a comeback but surprise, it’s here for a limited time this summer to help you bring back all those favorite memories. We’re celebrating the summer with the citrus beverage only here for a short time and a new festive table centerpiece, our cassette tape vase.
While it was close to impossible to find cassette tapes on shelves, I did have some fun on a little treasure hunt while I was picking up Zima®. We have a stack in our home, but they have too many summer memories recorded on them to use in a DIY project. Please tell me you recorded your favorite songs live streaming from the radio onto a cassette tape too and felt annoyed when the radio DJ talked over the intro or ending.
Neon spray paint, blank cassette tapes and Zima® will bring you right back to the 90’s this summer.
Cassette Tape Vase instructions
- cassette tapes
- neon spray paint
- tall thin vase
- short vase larger than tall vase
We currently have rainbow flowers displayed on our kitchen table in the cassette tape vase. The bright colors are a great addition to the 90’s throwback.
Fully coat the cassette tapes with neon spray paint. Allow first side to dry, flip over and coat the back. We used cans of bright blue, pink, orange and yellow.
Trim your flower stems and arrange in tall thin vase with water. Place tall vase in center of short vase.
Arrange neon cassette tapes in space between the two vases. Depending on the width of the gap, your tape arrangement could include just a few tapes or many.
Continue stacking tapes until the bottom of the vase is full of neon cassette tapes.
Display with colorful flowers for a festive 90’s summer party or simply because you want a reason to smile in the morning.
How will you celebrate a favorite decade this summer? If you live in the desert like me, you could add this theme to a dinner in the desert party!
