For the second time in two days, I am attempting the…
After yesterday’s failure, I wasn’t left with much time to scrap something new together. I still had Perrier bottle bud vases on my mind…what else am I to do with my little collection?

This definitely seemed less ambitious, and after spending hours working on burning glass, I was ready for something could guarantee me success! To get started I needed:
- 12″ threaded 3/8″ rod (with a hack saw to cut into 2″ pieces)
- (3) 3/8″ ceiling flange
- (3) 3/4″ split ring hanger
- a pack of picture hangers
- wood screws (I used #9-1 1/2″)
- Approx 18″ long piece of scrap wood (the piece I used was 7″ wide)
- (3) clean and empty Perrier bottles
I got most of my supplies at Lowes. For some reason they were incredibly hard to track down, so I finally ordered them online and picked them up at the store.
My wood I had on hand from my shed demolition last spring. I love the color and texture of it. It’s worn and dark, the perfect contrast to soft spring blooms!
On the backside of the board I nailed in 2 picture hangers. I measured down just over an inch. In retrospect, I’d would have done it about half an inch from the top so it would hang a bit better.
Using a hack saw I cut the threaded rod into (3) 2″ long pieces. This was the most tedious part…my shoulder still feels a little numb, like I got a massive flu shot!
But once they were cut, it was all down hill! I screwed them into the flanges.
We have an empty wall in our kitchen that is screaming for more color! Mind you, white tulips don’t add much extra color I know, but in a few months I will have so many more colors of flowers to put in those vases, can’t wait!!
