Test Tube Bud Vase Centerpiece – DIY

Here is how my Test Tube Bud Vase turned out!

This took me literally 30 minutes or so to make!  And the best part… All you need is a drill!
The biggest question I had when I first started planning this was where I would find the test tubes.  I found my test tubes on Amazon here.  I bought 10 for under $10 and I had free shipping.  I LOVE Amazon.  It is always so easy and the shipping is always very fast!  I actually received mine the day after I ordered… Woohoo!
For my wood I used an 8-foot 2×6″ board from Lowe’s.  I cut mine 44″ long.  You can also have the guys at Lowe’s or HD cut it for you for free!  The board was under $4 and you can make 2 of them out of 1 board.
I first marked my board 2″ from the side.  Then, I put a mark every 5″ from that point.  So, I had 9 marks on my board where I will put the holes.
I decided I wanted to shanty my board up a bit, so I hit it with a hammer a bunch.
To drill your holes, you will need a spade bit.  I found mine at Lowe’s.  I used this 13/16″ spade bit.
Just put it in your drill and you are ready to go!  I put a hole on every mark, and I made sure to go down about the same depth on each one.
Easy peasy!
Now the fun part…
Hellllllllo Kona!
I am LOVING Rust-Oleum Kona Ultimate Wood Stain!  So pretty!

That’s it!
My final step was picking up  a few fresh flowers from the grocery store and filling the tubes with a little bit of water!
Now… How easy is that?!
Let’s do the math here…
$10 for test tubes
$4 for my wood
$14 for supplies… Yup! That is my kind of project!  Want to see what I made with the extra test tube?? I will be sharing that soon! ;-)
For now… Here are a few more pictures!

Not a fresh flower kind person… No sweat! Just skip the water and use some artificial ones!
