How I Made Wall Vases From Repurposed Spice Jars and Wood Frames

I picked up two cute wood frames and paired them with vintage spice jars I had in my stash to create wall vases. My first plan was to use wire to just hang the jars inside of the frames and then I spotted a roll of wire mesh cloth (gutter guard). My plans changed. I cut pieces of the wire mesh and attached them to the frames first before wrapping wire around the jars and hooking them to the wire mesh. These can hold fresh flowers to add a touch of Spring to a room, fresh herbs in the kitchen or even eucalyptus sprigs in the bathroom. (When hot steam combines with eucalyptus is creates an aroma that opens up your sinuses)

    What are easy points?

      I think they probably are glazing points. They are used to hold glass into frames - windows and picture frames. I found them at Home Depot.

    Hello, These look really cute and lovely. I was wondering how you remove the bottles to empty the water out to refresh it and clean inside the bottles. I think you said the wire around the bottles is twisted or tied on?

    • Hi Dee, the little glass jars are wired on. I wrapped the wire completely around the jar first and then used the ends of the wire to make little "hooks" to hang on the wire screen.
