DIY Mid-Century Modern Inspired Wood Grain Vase
- Tall 12″ Glass Cyclinder Vase
- Band-It Wood Veneer Edging
- Several cans of wood stain in various shades
- Tacky Glue
- Scotch Tape
- Craft Brushes
I found the vase for this project at Target for only $2.99 so I was still able to keep this project under the $10 allowance for supplies.
First, I wrapped the veneer strip around the outside of the vase to get the length needed and cut 9 strips to size. I then stained the veneer strips in different stain colors of Jacobean, Old English, and Espresso. All colors I had on hand. I allowed them to dry for several hours. I left a couple of the veneer strips unstained.
Next, starting at the bottom of the vase, I applied a layer of Tacky glue around the outside of vase, circling the entire lower edge. Then I wrapped one of the stained veneer strips around the vase and secured the ends together with the scotch tape to allow the glue to dry. I repeated this step several more times, alternating the stain color on the strips as I continued to stack them on top of each other and up the height of the vase.
The end result, is a unique, and beautiful wood accent accessory for my home.
It looks really good with the vintage lamp I found at our spring church rummage sale for only $3.00!
