Materials you’ll need

  • Dollar Tree Hexagon Signs: These versatile signs form the base structure of your vase, providing a sturdy and stylish foundation.
  • Jenga Pieces: These pieces add a unique texture and design to your vase, allowing for endless creative possibilities in pattern and arrangement.

Equipment

  • Hot Glue Gun: An essential tool for this project, the hot glue gun will help you securely attach the wood pieces together with precision.
  • Hot Glue Sticks: Ensure you have plenty on hand, as they are crucial for keeping your DIY wooden vase intact.

Step-by-step instructions

Preparations

  1. Gather all your materials and equipment. Ensure your workspace is clean and organized.
  2. Lay out the Dollar Tree Hexagon Signs and Jenga pieces, so you can visualize your design before starting.
  3. Preheat the hot glue gun, making sure it is ready for use by the time you begin assembly.

Making a wooden vase

  1. I started off by created the bottom section of the vase with the jenga pieces.
  2. Add a dab of hot glue to one end of the jenga piece and press firmly on the backside of the hexagon sign. Repeat this until the entire bottom section is covered. I used 7 jenga pieces.
  3. I next repeated this but left some space in between each jenga piece on the other sides of the hexagon sign leaving the top section open.
  4. Add dabs of glue to each jenga piece and press the backside of the other hexagon sign on top. I allowed it to settle and added dabs of hot glue where needed.

Tips

  • Precision Placement: Use a pencil to mark placement lines on the hexagon signs before gluing. This ensures that your pieces are aligned perfectly.
  • Optimize Glue Bonding: Apply the hot glue in small sections to avoid it cooling too quickly and losing its adhesive properties.
  • Sealing the Vase: Consider using a wood sealant once your vase is assembled to add an extra layer of protection and give it a polished finish.

  3. Mixed Materials: Incorporate other materials like rope or fabric for a mixed-media vase.
  4. Engraved Design: Personalize your vase by engraving patterns or initials into the wood before assembly.
