Nautical Style Candle Holder or Succulent Vase

6 Materials
30 Minutes

This is an easy dollar store craft. I decorated a clear vase with sisal rope and wood pieces using hot glue. It's perfect as either a succulent vase, a candle holder, or a seashell display.
The project is super easy and the natural look is very stylish.
The supplies for the project are rope and a vase from the Dollar Tree and decorative wood filler from Dollar General.
The first step in the project is to adhere the sisal rope to the vase. I used hot glue and started at the bottom of the vase with the sisal rope.
I have a tip for working with hot glue. I use a Popsicle stick or tweezers when pressing two hot glued surfaces together. Saves the fingertips.
I ran several layers of rope up the vase then I glued the decorative wood pieces around the vase.
Once the glue was dry I added a candle also from the Dollar Tree to the vase.
I also tried the nautical style vase as a display for seashells.
For the succulent display I used rock filler and faux succulents from the Dollar Tree.

    I have a plain glass vase, I'm going to get my daughter to make this for me. I hope she doesn't try to keep it.
