Crocheted Jute Vase

I crocheted this vase using jute twine from the dollar store.  I improvised as I went along, using single crochet for the bottom and then switching to double crochet. 

I wasn't sure what sort of arrangement I was going to use it for but when I found the braided stem of a ficus plant I had killed years ago, I decided to make a topiary using silk foliage because I kill all plants other than succulents. 

I shaved a florist's oasis into a ball shape, then just inserted the stems of the leaves from three different types of plants: ivy, philodendron, and what looks like brunnera.
