  1. Ohhhhh Lora!! I LOVE these!! I’m really into those weedy type grasses that you spoke of this year and the ones you picked look SO pretty in your DIY vases!! What a creative use for those old buckets…so good!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Well, the old bucket was beyond fixing, so a repurpose was in order. And I use these so much more than I would have the bucket.

  2. These are fabulous Lora, love the rustic charm and such a clever idea! Pinned 🙂

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      They can be used in so many ways, for so many seasons! Thanks for pinning, Marie!

  3. I love these Lora! So rustic and pretty!

      Thanks, Amy…and they’re so easy;)

    2. Lora, these wooden vases are great. They look tiki-ish to me and would be great for a summer party or luau.

      1. Lora Bloomquist says:

        Yes, they would, Teri! I’ve used them for lots of things.

      Thanks, Cecilia! Your welcome:)

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      That’s the best combo, Linda…vintage and rustic with a modern edge!

  4. I love this idea! What a great way to repurpose that pretty wood.

    I would love for you to start adding your projects to my weekly party, Best of the Weekend. It goes live Friday nights at 8 pm.
