Start off with four pieces of wood cut at 5.5x5.5
Mason Jar Rustic Vase
I made an encasement for mason jars to be used as a vase. I stained the wood using a new painting technique, check it out!
I began by clamping a board down to the table to make a circle using my hole-saw.
Find the center point in the block, and mark it with a pencil. Place the bit there, and begin cutting the hole.
Then sand down all of the pieces.
Next step is to begin painting! Lightly dry brush some paint ( I used Blackberry House color warm milk) across the board.
Don't paint on too much! The spots of paint will prevent the stain from seeping in, which in small doses will look great!
Let the paint dry. Then brush on a layer of stain, it looks so cool!
Next step is to lightly hit the edges with a sander.
Place the pieces of wood around the mason jar, and begin stapling the box together.
This how it looks!
And then add some flowers into your vase.
Love the distressed look!
How awesome does that look? Check out more projects at my Facebook page, Gilbert Marketplace.
