Easy DIY Wood Bead Boho Accent Vase

Do you love super easy home decor projects that are inexpensive to make? Me too!  When I visit thrift stores I always see these glass vases with the centers squished in like an hourglass shape. I am not sure what you would call them, maybe hourglass vases? Flaired vase? Whatever they are called, for 99 cents, they are worth picking up to play around with. I had some extra wood beads and raffia hanging around from another project, and thought I would make an easy DIY wood bead boho accent vase with them. I had some gorgeous Goldenrod growing in my garden that I knew would make the perfect vase filler for them. I had made these a few weeks ago before I flipped my room to a more “fall” look with the giant pumpkin painting.

Supplies for creating a boho wood bead accent vase

You just need a few supplies for the project. I made two so that I had a match for each side of my mantel.

  1. This is my autumn style, thank you; better yet, I can do this myself. Searching for boho/eclectic fall decor in non-traditional fall colors is a challenging task, especially in a small town like mine. I love the vignette you’ve created. Your wood bead boho vase is genius in the company of your brass candlesticks, bittersweet candles and amazing art! Simple, eye-catching and perfect!
