This item started out as a clear glass vase. I used a coffee/tea stained paper and layered decoupage method to cover it. The stained paper gives a textured rustic finish to this project.The pine branches and pine cones are hand painted and a sealer is applied overall. I added a twine bow to finish. Vase can be wiped with a damp cloth and is best used with dried or artificial branches or flowers for a woodsy look. Vase is 7 1/2" high and opening at top is 3 5/8".
