Hi, my sweet friends!!
Is it me or time really flies? It seems like yesterday that I was announcing you another Thrift Store Challenge but that was a month ago! As you know, a group of bloggers teamed up together to share our crafts and decor out of thrift store finds. Last month I decided to upcycle wicker baskets in 5 minutes with spray paint and they turned out lovely. This month I thought I could keep decluttering our home and used something I had laying around for quite a long time.
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
- There’s no monthly theme.
- There’s no budget to stick to.

On a visit to my favorite shopping center aka flea market, a young girl was selling something she told me it was a game. I had no idea what it was or how to play it, but for 0,50€ I decided to bring it home with me. If my girls paid no attention to it, I could always repurpose it because it was wood.
For me, it was just a pile of wood.
I searched on Google and found out there was a similar game called Jenga. We read together how to play and tried for some time. My daughters lost interest in it and it sat forgot for some time again, so I decided to keep it for me.
One day I was playing with it and suddenly an idea struck me, I could make a vase! Really!
Keep reading to learn how to make a flower vase out of a Jenga game.
I told my daughter the idea I had and miss A wanted to help me. As it didn’t require any power tools or toxics I was happy she joined me 🙂 We only needed some wood glue.
First, we figured out the design we wanted and then we added a bit of glue to all the connecting parts, then let it dry.
We did the same with the rest of the pieces and let them rest flat while drying.
Once they were dry, we added some more glue to connect all of them, like in the picture below, and stuck one on top of the other.
When we finished we let it dry and took an old glass vase I had from Ikea ages ago and place it inside the wooden vase.
Isn’t it lovely?
I placed it on my desk for a while.
Then I moved it to a silver console I had in my bedroom, it looked nice on both places.
Love this new vase and I am happy I could give a new use to all those pieces from the Jenga game.
And now for more thrifty goodness!
