~ Creating A Birch Bark Vase ~


With the bursting beauty of summer here, we are perpetually filling vases with handfuls of wild flowers, tree blossoms at their peak and our garden lovelies as they unfold their sweet faces.
Perfect time for a new vase!

 To make these you need a glue gun, scissors, elastics and a jar or vase. 

To create...
Collect some birch bark 
* be sure never to take it from a living tree ~ there is usually plenty on the forest floor for the taking. *

Find a jar or vase to use.
Measure and cut your birch bark ~ just a bit taller than your jar and over lapping about an inch.
 Glue it together.
Add elastics to hold it together until the glue is dry.
Place the jar inside your birch bark round...
and enjoy filling it up with the beauty that surrounds you!

Be Well
~ Shanti ~

  1. *gasp* Oh! these are just beautiful ... I feel a trek through the woods to find birch bark is in my very near future ;-)
    I am also pretty smitten with the earthenware goblets on the table in your last photo - would it be rude to ask where you got those?

  4. Becky... the goblets were a thrift store find (for $1 each!). It always amazes me at the little treasure you can find second hand shopping. Sorry I can't direct you more specifically.
