Farmhouse Décor: Jar Flower Holder

I wanted to explore the farmhouse décor trend and asked my niece if she had any outdoor farmhouse style decorating ideas. I have that flower wheelbarrow in the backyard, the wooden table to grow my bagged vegetables, and we installed a shed (a much-needed shed!). Now, I wanted something that might match.

She brought in four ideas, including the terrific little DIY farmhouse house number sign I shared last week, and this sweet little jar flower holder.

We actually made everything at the same time as these four projects used a lot of the same materials. Not only did it keep costs down, it sped things along.

Farmhouse Décor: Jar Flower Holder Notes:

• The vinegar solution you make MUST sit for at least 24 hours uncovered. If you cover the solution, it might oxidize and turn orange.

• To remove the baby food jar label easily, simply fill it with hot water until the glue softens on the label. Pull the label off. Any residue can be removed with a quick scrub from a steel wool pad.

• A baby food jar was used on this craft. If you do not have a baby food jar, a small relish jar, mustard jar, jelly/jam jar would also work.

• If you plan on hanging this outside, you will either want it under a covered area or add a coat or three of varnish before adding the hose clamp.

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy Farmhouse Décor: Jar Flower Holder can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby.

• Create a whitewash-like paint: simply add a little bit of white paint and water to a jar with a lid. Shake vigorously to combine. You want the whitewash-like paint to be the consistency of cream.
• Cover your work surface against any spills.

DIY Farmhouse House Numbers Sign

Large or small, this farmhouse house number sign can be sized to your house so it will fit perfectly in your chosen space. The easy to follow step-by-step tutorial will show you how to make this basic wooden sign look unique, fashionable, and charming.

I have that flower wheelbarrow in the backyard, the wooden table to grow my bagged vegetables, and we installed a shed (a much-needed shed!). Now, I wanted something that might match.

She brought in four ideas, including this terrific little house number sign. Only problem? Those are not my house numbers; they are hers. {insert side-eye} Oh well, c’est la vie. I can easily make one for myself, I just need the plaque size perfect for my home.

DIY Farmhouse House Numbers Sign Notes:

• Tea stain: you can use any black tea to form this tea stain. Lipton was used as it gives a reddish-hue. If you do not want a reddish-hue, avoid Lipton tea.

• The vinegar solution you make MUST sit for at least 24 hours uncovered. If you cover the solution, it might oxidize and turn orange.

• Your plaque may be made of inferior grade wood. While that is nice for a farmhouse project – adding imperfections – it may require a second coat of tea staining, varnishing, etc. Wait at least 12 hours before applying a second coat. It can take that long for the tea and the vinegar solutions to develop and darken.

• Bleeding may also occur when inferior wood is used. If it bothers you a lot, try and hide any bleeding using the numbers or welcome sign. Remember that higher quality wood is less likely to bleed.

• Make certain whatever glue you use will dry clear, or use goop.

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy Farmhouse House Numbers Sign can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby.

• 24 hours after making your tea stain and vinegar solution, cover a work surface against spills or stains.
• Place your wooden plaque down on the covered surface, and tea stain the entire plaque, including the sides. Do not worry about any distressing – you want some distressing as it adds charm to the finished piece.

• Leave a big area clear for your words and paint a small object onto the stone that matches your saying. For instance a small button for “cute as a button”. A small bug for “cute as a bug’s ear”, a daisy for “fresh as a daisy”, etc. The object is in place of the last word of the saying. You can trace an outline of the small object, or just draw it freehand.
• Once the paint for your small themed object dries, write on your words with a contrasting color to your stone base. You can use a paint pen or a fine tiped pain brush and acrylic paint. These stones were painted black, so I used white to write the words.
Allow the word-paint time to dry completely.

• Allow the Mod Podge to dry for 24 hours before using.

• You can even add a strong magnet to the back of your stones and make them magnets, or display them on your desk or shelf with pride, if you love them too much to give them away!
