DIY Beer Bottle Vase

Create this simple pallet wood and beer bottle vase in just a few easy steps!

 

 

 

It’s finally time to share the last project on my exterior gallery wall.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I actually made this one awhile back for a completely different reason, so I didn’t photograph the process very well. While I don’t have many pictures of the process, it’s a pretty simple project. It is also very similar to the process for the Shadow Box Succulent Planter and Bird feeder, so you can peek at those for reference as well.

I began by gathering pallet wood. I needed two pieces the same size, and from them I cut:

2@ 18 & ¼”

2@ 8”

I lightly sanded everything, then measured where I wanted the holes and marked it out on one of the longer boards.

I centered each end hole 2 &3/4” from the end.

The middle holes are centered at 4 &1/4” from one another, and from the end holes.

I used a 1 & ¼” spade bit to drill the holes.

For no particular reason, I decided it might look nice if the corners overlapped a bit.

(When the stems are a bit too short, I fill the bottles with sand to help hold the flowers up. Please ignore the residual sand all around the neck of the bottles :-)

The pallet boards I used for this project were a bit thinner and I wasn’t sure if the joints would be strong enough on their own. I used the table saw to rip some small pieces then I wood glued and nailed them into the corners for extra support.

Then I slid the bottles into place,

And grabbed a few daisies from the garden.

I have been changing out the flowers based on what I have available in the garden, or what I find at the farmer’s market. When I have nothing long stem in bloom, I change to these artificial flowers.

I think this is my favorite part of the exterior gallery wall, simply because it is so easy to change out the color. Just imagine how beautiful it will look filled with the deep reds and oranges of fall!
