Wire Wrapped Vase

Today I made this vase using wire mesh called "hardware cloth".

 I purchased this roll in the garden department of Home Depot for about $12. Use heavy gloves to handle it because it is sharp. I used these Dikes (no offense to anyone - this is what they used to call them - Really) and some old kitchen shears to cut a piece to wrap around my vase.

I then spray painted it with Rust-oleum
Hammered Dark Bronze spray paint and let dry completely.

I then wrapped it around a plain glass vase and used some hemp rope to secure.

I brought the ends around to the front and tied them in a knot, trimmed and frayed the ends.

I added water and greenery - I can change these out for flowers later.

Now I have some fresh greenery on my mantel.

Thanks for stopping by!
