Make wood wrapped vase over a can City Farmhouse


I found tin cans from canned veggies that fit the height pretty good. I then took a birch strip & wrapped it around, gluing the twine at the beginning and at end.

Wrap bark with twine

The twine adds a rustic touch, so I just wrap & tie. I usually just eye it & cut off a good length. I like when it looks layered. Wrapping with leather cording would also be a cool look for this project.

Creating the initials on the cans was such a fun part I loved! To create my initials and make sure I had even lines,  I firs used a pencil & drew out a heart & initials. I took my wood burning pen & with the point bit I traced over it. Going slowly a few times over  to make the initials darker. Wood burning kits also have initial stamps, and you could also brand in  a quote or saying onto the can.

These would be so perfect for the rustic-country outdoor weddings I have planned for ALL of my nieces:). These  DIY birch bark vases are so cute and are seasonless. They would look gorgeous with fall flowers such as Asters.
