Make a unique and fun hanging bud vase wind chime for about $10!
This hanging bud vase wind chime was shared as part of the monthly crafty de-stash challenge.
If you are not familiar with this, every month a group of bloggers challenge each other to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies.
Check out some awesome creations you might be able to make from your own stash. Thank you to Megan of C’mon Get Crafty for hosting this fun challenge.
Think of how versatile this is. You can use silk flowers if you like or cuttings from your yard. You could even add food coloring to the water for a fun party idea!
Here is what I used:
Hanging Bud Vase Supplies
You can either paint the embroidery hoop or cover it with ribbon like I did. I just added a drop of hot glue at the beginning and the end. Talk about easy!
Next, tie the baker’s twine around the top of the test tube and then tie it to the hoop. I wanted the tubes to be at different lengths so I made sure to adjust them accordingly.
I tied some twine across the center of the hoop as well so I could have one tube hanging in the middle.
I picked up some beautiful peonies at Trader Joe’s-my go to store on the rare occasions I treat myself to fresh flowers. Unfortunately before I had a chance to photograph the beautiful peonies in my hanging bud vase they started falling a part.
I enjoyed them in a vase for a few days though! So I snipped a few hydrangeas from the yard and added those.
Look at the poor flower in the lower right corner! The second I touched it all the blooms fell. Hey, just keeping it real. It’s always good to improvise.
This is so versatile and can be used in so many different ways. I am going to test out the Dollar Store solar lights I have as they may just fit.
Wouldn’t this be pretty at an outdoor rustic Wedding? It looks so pretty in my dining room, but I may hang it outside on my deck as well.
