In this instructable I'll show you how you make a cardboard vase out of basic things that you probable have.

This is great for someone having a low budget party! 

the stuff needed is:

Soda/Fanta, 0,5L bottle
dumbbells ca 5 kg

Step 1: Finding the Shape

To get the best results you should find a easy but cool shape that you want your vase to have, of course this can change during the build.....

I made a drawing of the bottle first, to know how big the vase had to be. 

Step 2: Cutting, Cutting, Cutting......

now you need to cut out the shape, I did not change the shape during the cutting, but I rounded the edges later !

Remember to cut out two pieces that don't have a hole for the bottle, these will be the sides.

Step 3: Gluing

Use the brush and the glue. After gluing everything, lay the dumbbells on top, as shown. 

Step 4: Final Touch and You're Done !

Round the edges a bit, to get the cardboard inside more visible...

Congrats, you're finished!
