DIY Rustic Wood Vase Holder

You’ve heard me say many times to save those pieces of scrap wood, and here’s one reason why. I was looking for a vase to put my hydrangea cuttings in, and a plain ole glass vase wasn’t cutting it for me. Once again, I was inspired by a big brand name selling them for… well, let’s say it wasn’t in my price range.

Here’s what you will need to make this DIY rustic scrap wood vase holder.

Can you see what I see? Glass and wood are always a winning combo. Now to make the magic happen.

How To Make A DIY Vase Holder In 4 Easy Steps

Step 1

The first thing you will need to do is decide how many vases you want to display in your wood vase holder. I think 3 or 5 vases look nice depending on the length you want or the size of the vases. For this project, I chose to use 3 vases I already had on hand, but I intentions to do one with 5 vases for my 8-foot dining room table. I just need to find them.

You can pick up glass vases for almost nothing at garage sales. I like white bud vases with long skinny necks too.

Measure the vases you want to use and cut the fence pickets to the length that works to build a frame around the vases. If you want the vases to be removable for cleaning, cut the holes a bit larger than the vase’s neck so they can be slipped out easily. If you don’t care and are using artificial flowers, cut them to fit.

I did a test run and pieced the wood together, making a frame first.

Cutting The Holes For A Wood Vase Holder

Step 2

Once you have the wood, cut to size, measure where you want your vase opening to be; the best way to do this is to center the first vase on the board and then measure the placement for the other two with equal spacing. I used a pencil to mark the vase’s opening and cut a hole using a hole saw. These holes will vary based on the hole saw bit that you have, but you can also use a jigsaw.

Step 3

Now is a good time after cutting the holes to smooth out any rough areas on the wood. For this project, I choose to leave the wood rustic as is. But there is no reason that you couldn’t paint it a pretty color or add your own style to a wood vase holder.

How To Assemble Your Wood Vase Holder

Step 4

Building the frame for your wood vase holder, it’s pretty easy. I used wood glue to join the ends and secured them with a couple of nails on each joint. Nothing difficult. Allow it to dry overnight, slide the vases in their proper place, and then add your favorite flowers.

  • Hi Tawn,
    Thank you! The easiest way would be to measure your bottles to make sure you get the right cuts to fit. My bottles measure 6.25 inches. I allowed the bottle’s neck to be even with the top board. I hope this helps. 🙂
