Welcome back to those of you who enjoyed a little time off for Thanksgiving! I was pretty sick last year during the holiday, so it felt especially great to be able to hop energetically from one family meal to another, tramp through the Christmas tree farm, and gobble up all the tasty morsels I could get my hands on this year.
Today, though, I’m back in the office and extra excited to share a brand new decorative craft idea with you. It’s seriously projects like these that boost my passion for DIY…Guys, that faux looks-like-terracotta vase up there started out as a PVC pipe from the hardware store! I can’t believe how well this project turned out given the humble state of the supplies I started with, but it actually worked, and I’m here to tell the tale today.
Most, if not all, of the DIY projects I tackle start out with an inspiration image, and this entryway photo was mine. If you click that link, take a hard look at the cool mod vase on the lefthand side of the image. When I saw that, I remember thinking to myself, there’s gotta be a way to replicate that silhouette with cheapo supplies.
I spent more time than I should probably admit thinking over the possible things I could use, but I ultimately ended up with a PVC pipe as my jumping-off point. The circular base took weeks longer to brainstorm, though. I thought about a plate that I could spray-paint the same color as the pipe, but I wanted something that was entirely flat. Then, it occurred to me that I could use plain wood craft circles…
I’m not going to give all the goods away (you’ll have to hop to Hunker for that), but just know that this project is super easy and suuuuuper cheap to replicate, so it might be the perfect craft to work on during your holiday time off this year! Get the full scoop and supply list this way.
