Why spend money to buy a vase. You can make one for free in a few minutes.

Step 1: Get Empty Water Bottle.

Get Empty water bottle. Make a mark on the top where you will cut this and remove the top off.

I used a dremel to do this. If this is not available a knife would work too. Be careful and do not cut yourself.
Sanding this would be a good idea. Will not have to deal with fire burning the plastic and other hazards related to this.
I'd recommend heating the cut edge (with a lighter, etc) instead of using the tape - it will produce a nicer edge. The shells look great as bottom weights!
Or just sand it.
