DIY Rustic Wooden Riser

Do you ever feel like you just need something extra to complete a decor’ arrangement? This DIY is from one of those situations. I had this gorgeous Mary and Martha pitcher (that you can find here on sale until September 27, 2021 so grab it QUICKLY if you love it like I do –> https://www.mymaryandmartha.com/18729/shop/PRODUCTDETAIL.aspx?displayCategory=0014&page=1&prod=83708) that I had decorated with a flower arrangement and I wanted to put it to use with some of my fall decor’. I had recently purchased items to put together a riser and I thought this was the perfect opportunity and place for it.

Here is a list of items I used:

  • 2 Wooden Circles
  • Wooden Ball Beads
  • Wooden Finial Caps
  • Wet Wipes
  • Brown Paint
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue

My first step was to give everything a stained look. I achieved this look by using a wet wipe and some brown paint. Super easy without all the smell, cost and clean up!

After everything was stained, I grabbed the hot glue and went to work! I glued ball beads all around the outer edge of my first wooden circle. Once this was complete, I added my “legs” or finial caps. My final step was to add the top circle. I’ll be honest, I debated on adding it because it would have been a super cute piece without it but wouldn’t have given quite as much height as I would have liked (I’ll probably be doing some more for each of my bathrooms minus the top circle). I didn’t add a sealer to this project but if I would recommend you do if you plan to put it near water where it could possibly get wet or splashed.

The finished riser had the perfect rustic vibe for my arrangement and it added just the right amount of “extra” that I was looking for! This DIY was super simple and could be done by crafters and non-crafters alike! I found all of my supplies at Wal-Mart but most of these items can be found at any crafting store or ordered online at Amazon. I’m already looking forward to finding some larger circles for my next ones! I hope you enjoyed going through the steps of this DIY with me!
