I have this theory.
It’s called the don’t-really-point-out-what-you-need-to-work-on-in-your-house-point-out-the-chandelier-instead theory.
When you invite someone over to your house and they ask for a tour and you walk them through the rooms and they are oohing and ahhing over your curtains and your pillows and the random piece of Paris art on the wall….
….and you point out the piece of crown molding you forgot to add.
And the tour comes to a screeching halt and everyone stops and stares at the gap in the crown molding that no one would ever have noticed until you point it out.
Why do I do that?
Self….just point out the chandelier instead.
So in the spirit of that theory, I’m not going to point out that I made this fun vase with jute wording.
I’m not going to point out that hello ended up looking like bello. And that I wanted tell everyone hi and kind of ended up yelling instead.
Not a peep from me.
Instead I’m going to draw your attention to the beautiful flowers from my yard.
And the old patina of the pool cue frame that I made. (You can click here for the DIY).
And the faded glory of the chalkboard against the words of the vase.
That’s what I’m pointing out today.
Here’s how I made the vase. It was easy and took about 30 minutes and would be PERFECT for a gift or wedding centerpiece or mantel decoration.
word printed out from computer
1. Print out the word from your computer.
2. Tuck piece of printed paper into a glass vase.
3. Trace each letter with glue. Don’t add too much, just a light bit of glue on the letters.
4. Apply jute twine to vase.
Work one letter at a time.
You will want to hold each letter in place for about 30 seconds until the glue sets.
I used painter’s tape to hold it in place until it set. Let glue dry and remove the tape.
The project was fun and the possibilities are endless.
Good thing I had that theory so you never even noticed the misprint.
And if you did…..
….please don’t “bello” at me.
