Glass Wall Vase DIY
The wall vase came out way better than I expected. It makes me smile. The white board and the silver rimmed cut glass thingy with handle were a match made in Heaven.
Hanging Wall Vase
See, I didn’t exaggerate did I. The hanging vase can also be used as a candle holder or anything holder. I bet you guys can come up with other ideas for it.
This project got it’s start when I went to the workshop looking for something small to put together. I’m over the holidays, ya’ll. Ready to take down Christmas and move on. Anyone else feeling that way? Anyway I spotted the cut glass thingy with the handle and went in search of something I could hang it on.
The white thing that looks like a cutting board was some kind of wall décor. It’s been in my stash for years. I think I painted it for a project idea and that’s as far as it got.
Next I went in search of a hanger to attach to the board. The coffee can was full of all types of hangers that were either removed from project pieces or bought at junk shops. You never know when you might need a hanger.
I weeded through them and found the white one, and the black one, thinking either would work. Then I spotted the silver one……perfection.
First order of business was to distress the white paint. I turned the cutting board on the opposite side of the writing because it didn’t need repainting. Work smarter, not harder.
Next I drilled two holes for the hanger.
And used a hand held screwdriver (the hanger loop got in the way of the drill) to attach the hanger to the board.
Last part of the project was finding greenery or flowers to put in the glass container.
There was green paint (pleasant surprise) under the white paint and it showed up nicely when distressed.
I still can’t believe how easily the project came together and how perfectly imperfect. Would you call this Farmhouse style? I think that term has been way overused.
I added a few of those glass bead things to the bottom of the jar. The glass jar thingy cost $1.99 and I’ve had the board and hanger so long I have no idea what they cost. I would guess the whole project cost less than $4. I pick up these things at the Goodwill or other thrift stores. If it’s a deal and cool I buy it in the hopes of upcycling it later. You never know.
Hanging Glass Wall Vase
I’m ready to head into the New Year and ready to lighten things up. The wall vase fits the bill. It’s fun too.
This has nothing at all to do with the wall vase but I’m tossing it out there. Project Idea-I decorated a few mason jars for the Easter season and added candles to them. Most of us have a mason jar or 10 sitting around. See the project here….Mason Jar Candle Holders.
I listened to everything you guys said about the Art Deco chest and the new and improved makeover is coming next week. Thanks for all the input.
How do you like the wall vase? Leave a note please. I’ll be here tomorrow with the Furniture Fixer Uppers. Have a great day, Kathy
