My wife follows shanty-2-chic.com and saw some wall sconces on the website. She decided that she wanted to make them so she asked me to help.

I cut the wood and installed keyhole hangers. She did everything else. The vases are old spaghetti jars spray painted gold. The foliage is from Walmart.

Here is the project my wife saw on shanty-2-chic: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2015/03/diy-wine-bottle-wall-sconce.html

I’ve heard that this “Shabby Chic” thing is in style these days!

Anyway, great video—loved the wife’s outtakes at the end!

I like hers a LOT better than the ones with the bad gray paint job and clear bottles. She’ll probably have to make more as she sells these by the dozens!
