So If you know me by now, you know I love Farmhouse Decor. I have a Beautiful old Window that has a Mirror in it, hanging in my Entryway. I placed Three Hooks on the bottom of the Window. I have a beautiful Wreath hanging on the center Hook, and I made two of these Hanging Vases to put on either side of my Wreath. I love how Dainty and Beautiful these Hanging Wall Vases turned out!!!! I hope that you all will give them a try. I wish I had more places to put them, I love them that much!!!!!
A small Wooden Palette (I got mine at Dollar Tree)
One Tumbling Tower Block (From Dollar Tree)
A small Vase ( I got mine from Michaels)
Ivory Waverly Paint
Some Gel Stain
The very first step is to take your Tumbling Tower Block and hot glue it to the center of your Crate.
Once the hot glue is dry and the Tumbling Tower Block is secure, paint the entire crate and block, with Ivory Paint. (I used Waverly Chalk Paint)
This is what it looked like after I painted it.
Next you are going to take some brown gel stain and distress the whole thing. I dry brushed it on with a chip brush. I love how it looks so much!!! It just gives it an old worn out look.
Now grab your small Glass Bottle and Jute. I wrapped the Jute around the top of the bottle to add a more decorative look. Make sure to leave the ends of the Jute long so you can tie your Bottle to the Crate.
Now it is time to attach your Bottle to the small Crate. The reason I added the Tumbling Tower Block is because the bottle is bigger on the bottom than top. I added some hot glue to the back of the rope on the bottle and glued that directly to the Tumbling Tower Block. Make sure to leave the long strings of jute to either side of the bottle when you glue it on.
Once it is glued and secure, wrap the jute strings through the wood crate and tie them tightly together in a simple knot.
The next step is to add a hanger. I took some jute string and tied it, in two places, around the top wooden piece going across. I hope that makes sense. The picture below shows exactly what I did.
The last thing I did was place this darling little flower into the Bottle. I really can’t believe how beautiful it turned out!!!!
I made two of them and hung them on either side of my wreath (the first picture on this blog shows them hanging with my wreath.) They added the perfect finishing touch!!!
