J’adore fall decor.
Fall decor works for me because I loooove warm shades. I’m also into natural elements, which happen to be right on trend. I needed a stylish way to display flowers this season, and I fell in love with this easy DIY vase. Here’s how you can turn out your own…
You’ll need the following:
- A square or cylinder vase (you can find tons of inexpensive options at Michael’s and Ikea).
- A measuring tool.
- Twigs (I collected mine outside, but you can buy a bundle at Michael’s)
- A glue gun.
- Gardening shears.
Use a wet paper towel or lysol wipe to clean the surface of the twigs. This helps remove any excess specks that could fall off and leave a small mess. I hate messes.
Measure your vase, and use your gardening shears to cut your twigs that length. It’s okay if your twigs aren’t perfect… imperfect werqs here.
Use a glue gun to secure each twig to your vase. I didn’t have a technique for this, I just chose my first twig and rolled with it. After gluing the initial twig, it was like trial and error. I made sure to test each twig before gluing, to ensure a snug fit. When the glue is dry, tie a bow of twine around the vase. This will hold the twigs in place (if any become loose), and give everything a finished look.
A twig vase is an amazing seasonal centerpiece. You can keep it understated with white roses, or go all out with orange and marigold blooms. I personally think simple is chic.
