Farmhouse Wall Decor – Rustic Wall Vase Made with Scrap Wood
Simple rustic farmhouse decor
This is how I do simple farmhouse wall decor – a rustic wall vase made with scrap wood. I guess you can tell that these little house shaped sconces hold a bud vase for a flower. Made from reclaimed scrap wood. Rustic wood + a bud vase = a wall sconce that is handmade from pallet wood that I salvaged from the wood pile. A flower vase tube is inserted in the pipe holder. The little vase will hold a small amount of water to accommodate fresh flower or flower bud. Scrap wood projects seems to be a thing for me. Yea, I’m a DIY-er for several reasons. I get bored, I’m retired, and I’m on a budget. So, with all these factors into play, I’m always on the hunt for something to fill the voids.
These are my handmade unique rustic home decor. Made from aged/ recycled wood. Can be wall mounted. Would look great in different style homes. Perfect mounted on a porch. Adds cozy, rustic appeal. These scrap wood house-shaped sconces would work for a rustic wedding decoration as well.
DIY Wood Scrap Project
So on to this simple scrap wood house shaped wall sconce thing-a-ma-jig & how I made it. The best part? You can totally customize it and embellish it to what you want, and these are literally made from wood scraps that were in my burn pile, I’ll count that as pretty much free…
What You Need
- Scrap Wood
- jig saw & skill saw
- sandpaper or wood sander
- Pipe hangers – purchased from Home Depot (To keep the small bud vase mounted to the wood.)
- bud vase – gifted to me from a local flower shop
- stencil (I didn’t have a heart shape stencil, so I made my own from card stock, any old file folder will do.)
- stencil brush
- small screws
- electric drill
- Cut your scrap wood to the length you want the wall sconce. Remember to allow for the length of the bud vase and flower stem. I cut two lengths of wood at 10″ and one at 12″.
- Using scrap paper, I created the roof angles to have symmetry and traced this pattern on to the wood top.
- After securing the wood scrap to the sawhorse with clamps, using a jigsaw I cut the roof angles.
- Lightly sanded the rough cuts.
- Stenciled the heart shape with white paint.
- Secured/fastened the pipe hangers to the house sconce.
- Filled the bud with water and inserted a simple bloom.
These wall vases are perfect for flower arrangements, plant propagation, herbs in the kitchen, dried flowers, or change to small sprigs of pine and holly berry in the winter. These little wall vases are versatile enough for any room, or any season. This is the perfect accent for a boho style, farmhouse, rustic, or industrial home.
