DIY Birch Vase

This past Spring, I kept waiting for my birch tree to bud, but it didn’t make it through the winter. I have always loved it’s silvery white bark – it reminds me of the logs my Grandma Bruck had next to her fireplace growing up. I decided it was the perfect opportunity to add a little birch into our home decor for winter. I started with a simple birch vase.

Wouldn’t this be a beautiful gift? Especially if it the wood came from somewhere significant.

To create one of your own, you’ll need:

log

tri-flute drill bit

saw

sand paper

We started by sawing a piece of branch down to the height we wanted. Using the drill bit, we drilled a wide hole to my desired depth, which was about 2″ from the base of the branch. Then, the top was sanded to give it a smooth, beautiful finish. You can insert a glass vase or waterproof the interior if you plan to add fresh flowers.
