Materials and Tools
1 pack (100 count) of Wood Craft Dowels, ¼” x 8” (craft/hardware stores or online)
1 clear smooth-sided vase or wide-mouthed jar, size of choice
Craft Glue (for wood and glass)
Sponge Paint Brush
Paint, Wood Stain, Clear Coat Seal (optional)
- Select a vase with an opening 6” or larger and 6-8” tall. If your dowels are taller than your vase, use tin or wood snips to trim them to size. Make sure vase is clean and thoroughly dry.
- Use sponge brush to apply a generous amount of glue, a section at a time, and begin attaching dowels in place. After setting six or more, apply a strip of painter’s tape to hold dowels in place to dry. Continue this process until entire vase is covered. Let it dry for a few hours.
- If you prefer, finish with paint, stain, or spray with a clear coat sealer. Allow 24 hours of drying time before adding utensils.
