"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Rustic DIY Twig Vase

The Rustic DIY Twig Vase is a simple yet chic home decoration that's perfect for fall. Dress up an old glass vase that hasn't gotten much use with this easy tutorial. Against the earthy tones of the twigs and twine, the colors of your flowers will really pop. This DIY vase will add a rustic charm anywhere you place it. This nature-inspired crafts will cost you next to nothing and look absolutely fabulous! Even the most inexperienced of crafters can create this piece of stylish home decor.

Rustic DIY Twig Vase

Materials:

  • Aleene's Tacky Glue
  • Small glass jar or vase
  • White copy paper
  • Pencil or pen
  • Wood twigs (or cinnamon sticks) - twigs should be as straight as possible
  • Wire cutter (or gardening cutters)
  • Ribbon or twine

Instructions:

  1. Lay vase on paper. Use pencil to mark lines on paper indicating top and bottom of vase. These lines will be used to measure and cut twigs.
     
  2. Apply three lines of glue around vase. Set aside for 10 to 15 minutes to allow glue to start to dry.
     
  3. Using measurement on paper, cut twigs to length with cutters. Cut enough twigs to fit around entire vase.
     
  4. Once glue has set as recommended in step 2 above, set vase on work surface. Press each twig into glue using the work surface to hold the twig at the bottom and to keep all the twigs aligned. Because you have let the glue set and you are using with work surface to help hold the bottom of the twigs, they should not shift. Cover entire vase with twigs.
     
  5. Wrap with ribbon or twine and tie into knot. Set aside to dry.
