I have probably the simplest DIY on the planet for you today! In fact, you might even consider it more of a styling trick–it’s that simple. Lately, I’ve been borderline obsessed with hanging vases of flowers on my walls, and it all started with this wall vase version a few years ago where I’d adhered a picture hanger to a vase with heavy duty adhesive and hung it on the wall like a picture. It was such a simple way to add fresh botanicals to vertical surfces.
Fast forward to two weeks ago where I needed something organic to pair with my DIY key holder, so on a whim I pulled out a Command strip and quickly hung a vase of eucalyptus on the wall. I only had black strips at the time, but I still think it still worked out. (Check out the last photo in this post for a look.) I love how it turned out, so I left the vase on the wall for as long as the eucalyptus would allow. I even made another for my blog room when Mr. Francois came home with tulips last week!
The obvious great thing about using removable hanger strips is that they can be taken off the wall and the vase without a trace (when you want to change out your decor) and the large 16 lb strips give you peace of mind that the vase won’t come crashing down on your at any given moment. Here’s the skinny on how to hang a vase:
How I Made It:
Materials: Any Small Vase || Large Picture Hanging Strips (16 lb capacity) || Fresh Flowers + Water
- Press two hanging strips together until you finish hearing the teeth click together.
- Peel off one of the strip’s backing. Attach vertically to the vase and firmly press for 30 seconds. Trim the strip’s tail, if the strip is longer than your vase.
- Peel off the other strip’s backing paper and attach to the wall, again pressing for 30 seconds.
- Fill the vase with water and flowers!
