How to Make DIY Centerpiece Vases

During the summer blooming flowers are in abundance and displaying those beauties is easy with these DIY centerpiece vases.

Grab some redwood fence pickets for their weatherproof and lightweight design.

Prepare the Wood


Cut and sand the redwood pickets. The panels are usually rough so a good sanding is essential.

Build the Vase


Build the vase with wood glue and trim head screws. The vases are very simple boxes, perfect for beginners.

Apply Finish


Choose your favorite finish and stain your vases. I used Behr waterproofing deck stain in Redwood.

Get Creative


Add some flair to the vase design with paint, stain, and engraving with a dremel.
