DIY: Wood Slice Vase

I have been in love with the look of wood slice ANYTHING for quite awhile now & this little DIY vase is the perfect way to introduce it to you guys! If I can remember right, I think I saw Candice Olson on Divine Design do a whole wall like this and I just about died. The natural element, the visual pattern and texture — so awesome.

Here’s how to do it!

Materials
Several small branches from trees or bushes, ranging from ½ to 1½ inches in diameter
Terra cotta pots, old vases or recycled tin cans
Low-VOC, nontoxic glue such as RooWood Glue
Coarse sandpaper

Tools
Lopping shears or long-handled pruners

1. Using shears, cut branches into slices about ½-inch thick. You will need slices in a variety of diameters to cover the surface completely.

2. Start at the bottom of the pot or can and work your way up. Dab glue on both the wood slice and the pot’s surface to ensure a good bond.

3. Always dry-fit each piece in place first to ensure that it will fit nicely with the other pieces. Fit tiny slices into small, awkward spaces.
