I love a good dollar store project! I have worked with Dollar Tree a number of times in the past (to make this gallery wall, this succulent tower and this tabletop decor). The Dollar Tree has so many amazing products in so many different categories – all for a buck!

Today’s project makes a simple flower vase with a quaintly farmhouse charm. I take a basic glass vase and wrap some twine around it. It really is one of the easiest projects I have ever created, but I love the way it turned out.

I wrapped the twine around the vase about 2/3 of the way to the top. However, you could certainly wrap the twine all the way to the top. I left some of the glass exposed because I think it adds a bit more elegance to the overall look.

Anyway, let’s get right to the details of this one. Here are the supplies you’ll need:

  • glass vase like this set (this project works best on a glass vase that is cylindrical in shape)
  • hot glue & glue gun
  • scissors
  • twine

Start wrapping the twine at the bottom of the vase, adding just a bit of hot glue to hold the twine in place. Since a big dollop of hot glue will stand out, it’s better to place a very thin amount of hot glue along the glass. After the twine is in place, you can add a bit more glue on top to secure.

Here is the finished product. I inserted some faux grass stems into my vase – got those stems from…. you guessed it, Dollar Tree!

See how rustic and farmhouse-y the twine looks on the vase! Love that!

Assuming you already have the hot glue, you can get this exact same look for under $5. The vase, twine, and a few grass stems are all from the Dollar Tree.
