DIY: Magnetic Vase

I came across a DIY video for lanky magnetic flower vases on Curbly that was so magical and simple I decided to transcribe it for you. Essentially, by slipping a metal plate under your table, you can fool your dinner guests into thinking your wobbly, skinny vase (with a magnet butt) can stand up on its own. You can find all of the supplies at your local hardware store.


  • One sink water line extender/thin metal pipe to use as the vase stem
  • A metal sheet to use as a base
  • A hack saw
  • Superglue

To learn the steps and see the video,


Here's how:

  1. Trim the pipes down to size using the hacksaw.
  2. Fill in the base of the pipe with some silicone all-purpose caulk (which will make it waterproof).
  3. Glue magnets onto the bottom of the pipe using superglue.
  4. Lay the metal base on your dining table.
  5. Lay your tablecloth on top.
  6. Then, put the stem vase on top of both; it should be magnetized to the metal sheet.
  7. Slip a long-stemmed flower in to the vase. Fini!

Well, I think Curbly was trying to replicate a design they'd seen that was metal. But, I think it would work with any material, plastic, lucite, maybe glass, so long as you're still able to adhere the magnetic to the bottom, and waterproof the base with caulk.

Do you have to use the metal pipes or can you use something else with a similar shape?
