12 DIY Copper Bud Vases

Contributor Post by Chelsea of Lovely Indeed


Hey gang! It’s Chelsea from Lovely Indeed, with a shiny little DIY that’ll brighten up a corner of your house. I was so inspired by Ashley’s awesome mini copper planters that I went to the copper section of my local hardware store and spent an hour daydreaming about things we could make! In the end, we settled on a gorgeous, simple bud vase wall installation.

It doesn’t get much easier than this. At your hardware store, grab:

Bend the hanger in a 90-degree angle, using the end of a table for leverage (put a towel down on the table to protect it from scratches). After the hanger is bent, screw it into the wall.




Insert the tube into the hanger and tighten the screws.


That’s it! Put a couple of pretty stems or leaves in it and you’re good to go! I actually think these would look great in multiples – I kind of want to go back to the store and get some more materials to make a couple more. Have fun!

Call me a nerd, but I really love the test tub vases that you see around now. This is such a fun metallic take on that look.

This is so simple and lovely! I have one question, what did you do to the bottom to seal and round it?

To Emily, and others, it's not copper plumbing pipe. It's a long copper air chamber. They are different. The smooth closed end it manufactured on one end of a air chamber. Example: http://www.hailiang.eu/air-chamber.htm
