DIY Bud Vase Holder
It is the season for fresh flowers. This time of year I can not get enough fresh cut flowers for my house! When I am at the grocery store a bundle of flowers always seems to make its way into my shopping cart. Normally I would just pop my flowers into a random vase I already have in one of my cabinets, but this time I decided my presentation would be different.
I decide to create a mobile of sorts to display my flowers. For this project, I actually channeled a wind chime from Anthropologie I had seen on Pinterest. I was so inspired by the look of the brass hoops and wooden pieces on the wind chime that I knew I had to recreate the look of it, but with vases instead of an actual wind chime. My project was a simple one that required very little effort. All I really did was string beads around metal hoops!
What do you think? Could you see this hanging in a room in your home or on your porch?
Here's what you'll need:
- 12" Metal Hoop
- 11" Metal Hoop
- 10" Metal Hoop
- 4 - 1 Inch Wooden Beads
- Leather Lace
- 3 - 4 Inch Plastic Storage Tubes
- Double Sided Tape
Let's get crafty!
Rip a piece of double sided tape that's about 3.5 inches long and add it to the side of your plastic tube.
Stick one of your tubes to your tape.
Place your third tube up against your two tubes. Make note of where the sides touch on your third tube.
Add your two remaining pieces of double-sided tape to your two tubes, then adhere your final tube.
Take the two ends of your leather cord and run them through the center opening in between your tubes. You will push your lace through the center until it comes out the top.
String one wooden bead (I started with 3, but realized it was too long) and slide it down to the top of your tubes.
Place your smallest metal hoop on top of your bead.
Repeat the above steps, adding your medium sized metal hoop and then your largest hoop.
Add a knot on top of your final bead.
Cut the excess leather cord from the knot at the bottom of your tubes. Now, pour in some water and add your flowers!
