DIY Flower Vase Of A Small Wood Log

Flower vases are great things for interior decorating. There are so many vases available that you can easily find some that will fit your interior wll. You can even make such vases. For example, you can use a small wood log. The vase made of such log would have a very natural and rustic look so if such design fits your interior don’t hesitate to make several such vases.

The idea is to drill a hole in a wood log using a spade bit that would be able to accomodate a small bottle or a jar. You can sand the log or to leave some bark on it. You can even stain. Everything depends on your desires. After the vase is done you can put fresh or faux flowers there, some sticks and even succulents.

    Hi, this is a great project. I’m just wondering, do we need to dry out the wood? Will it not rot if I just leave it in the house? Please advice. Thanks

    Giving wood some time to dry is a good idea. You can collect logs during Autumn and make the vases during next Spring. Good luck with the project!

    It seems the answer to everything is, “put a twig on it!”.

    thanks, Mike.

    Hey I love this idea! I think it will also look better if a varnish will be put on the wood so that it will last longer from the termites and some sort of nature destroying elements. I’ll denitely try doing this. Thanks!
