Knock Off Restoration Hardware Vase/Candle Holder

Pin It

This morning I recreated a beautiful Restoration Hardware vase/candleholder.  Their version was $68-$98.  I made mine with a glass jar I found at Michael's yesterday for $3.99 and a spool of twine I found at Lowe's for $4 and some change.  And it only took about an hour to make.  Easy Peasy!

Here is a more in depth tutorial - click here.

This one was my finished piece.

Here it is as a vase.



Here it is as a candle holder


Here is how I made it.  Find a glass jar in the right size you need.

Find twine or an angry looking rough yarn.

Last year, I was a bit scarf crazy and I bought some of those little plastic knitting thingies to make it easier than those knitting needles.  Trust me when I say they are easier.  With knitting needles I always somehow added a row at the end of each line.  The first scarf I made looked like it was a tent.

I used a woven loop.  I don't know what it is called, but if you guys want I can post a little tutorial on how to do it.  Let me know.

And you just keep repeating the pattern and looping until it grows from this...


To this!  Then you wrap it around the glass jar, loop the twine through the ends.

I looped back down to hide the seam.

Then you have a finished piece.

  7. That is fantastic! There are sites that show you how to make your own knitting nancy sort of thing (from MDF and nails, etc) if you can't get your hands on one of those plastic thingummies (have never seen them in Australia for example). Also, if you just loop your yarn around each one of those pegs, say in clockwise direction, rather than doing those sort of figure 8 loops that you did, and then keep winding your yarn around and hooking the loops over each stitch then you end up making a long tube. Which you can then make a skirt from if your starting thingummie is large enough, or at least arm warmers or leggings, or vests for little people, or a coat for your puppy, or a scarf that is double sided. All sorts of things...
    And that is still a fabulous bit of knitting, well done that girl!!!

    Thank you Titti :)

    Banaghaisge, I've seen the other types of knitting tools you mentioned. I found these last year and fell in love with how easy they were to use. Where had they been my whole life? Thank you for your kind words.
