Create a Woven Cane Vase Cover in Minutes!

We love an easy D-I-Y that instantly looks like a million bucks, and this one is on the top of our good-looking crafts list! Woven cane, used to make chair seats and backrests, looks remarkable when used as a vase cover for cylinder-shaped vessels. The process is super simple and takes only a few minutes to create once you gather all the necessary items!

 D-I-Y Cane Vase

Materials List

  • Water-tight cylinder. Try a tin can, drinking glass, or wine bottle (cut or whole)
  • Cane
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Water (room temperature)

  • Clean your vessel to remove any glue, labels or dust from the surface
  • Cut the cane to the desired height, measure the circumference of the cylinder, and cut the cane exactly, so the ends meet to form a complete circle around the vessel.
  • Glue one side of the cane to the vessel, let the glue cool off, and then wrap the loose end of the cane around the cylinder and secure it with another line of hot glue
  • Take the same length of burlap ribbon and glue it to the top of the vase.
  • Add cuttings of your choice and a place where everyone can appreciate your handiwork!

Don't stop here! Feel free to embellish your cane vase with dried flowers, pom poms, or anything that puts a smile on your face!
