I know posts have been few and far between lately, preparing your house and life for a new baby can do that 🙂 We’ve decided to room share for a minimum of 6 months, but more likely plan on having baby in the room for us for the first year based off the AAP recommendations. This means our master bedroom will double as our nursery. Luckily, our current home gives us plenty of space to make this a comfortable arrangement. Since we moved in last summer, the main level has been a priority with decorating and our bedroom décor had taken a backseat. Now seems like the perfect time to shift the focus to our area!
Enter old window project
I have 3 old windows hanging in our house, one in the front room, one in the living room and one in our bedroom. I have wreaths on the 2 downstairs and wanted to do something a little different for our bedroom. After searching Pinterest, I found inspiration from this picture-
After a quick trip to Michaels and Lowes, I had all the supplies I needed to do this easy DIY project.
- An old window
- Glass bottles or vases
- Faux plants
- Shears or wire cutter to separate faux plants
- Screw eyes (one to hang each vase)
- Clear rubber bumpers (to keep glass from banging on window pane)
Center a screw eye above each window pane and screw it in place. Next, tightly wrap the neck of each bottle with twine and knot it to make sure it’s very secure. You should leave yourself plenty of twine to hang the bottles through the screw eyes. Place a clear rubber bumper on the back of each vase to keep the bottles from banging on the window panes.
Once you hang the vases at your desired height, evenly fill the vases with your faux plants. Step back and enjoy! Seriously, so easy 🙂
Thanks for stopping by the blog 🙂 I hope you enjoy this variation of the common wreath on window look. I have a few finishing touches to add to this space that will be coming soon!
