Not too long ago, Anthropologie had a fabulous chained vase available. I loved the fusion of glass and metal, but not the price tag (nearly $300!). While their vase isn’t available for sale anymore, you can still make your own knock off version. With Valentine’s Day and spring on the horizon, this vase is just waiting to be filled with flowers.
Here’s a side by side comparison of their vase and my vase:
- Glass Vase
- Alene’s Jewelry and Metal Glue
- Flourish Clasp Set (4)
- Jump Rings
- Large Oval Loop Chain
- Flat Silver Chain
Step two: Once the glue is dry, open a jump ring and attach it to the clasp (as pictured).
Step three: Attach the large chain to the first jump ring, and close the ring. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with each clasp. Vary the length of chain as desired.
Step four: Open a jump ring and attach the flat silver chain to the large loop chain. Use additional jump rings to attach the flat chain to the clasps and the large chain. Again, vary the length of chain as desired.
