Yarn and Nail Wall-Hanging Vase - hang on wallI made this wall-hanging flower vase out of a wooden cutting board that was a bit too banged up to use in the kitchen any longer. I painted mine, but you could leave the wood bare as it's also pretty. I created a mason jar template and traced it with some wire nails, wrapped yarn around the nails, then filled the jar with flowers. I've provided the template below for you to use. Enjoy!
