Upcycled Bottles : Flower Vase ..


Spring has sprung and now it is time to add some colour into the home.

Do you like add different flowers into your home. What about upcycling some old bottles and making them into flower vases?

A great way to recycle your old glass bottles.

Saving waste on the environment?

I have a shelve in my shed full of old beer bottles, Whisky bottles and jam jars. All waiting to be up-cycled.

Today I sharing a beautiful and simple way to recycle your old bottles.

Upcycled Bottles: Flower Vase.


Old Glass Bottles:

Old glass bottles are perfect for your Spring flowers, fresh flowers or artificial ones. Simply save your old bottles, wash old and leave to soak a while to get the old labels off them. Fill with water and add your flowers. Unless your popping artificial flowers then you could leave empty of half fill will coloured stones or sand.


Pretty In Pink:

A pretty pink center piece for your dinner table. Beautiful for outside dinning too. Dinner party's or weddings. The possibility is endless. Adding a pop or two of colour can make your home seem brighter.


Pretty In Yellow Too:

Mix and match a few of your favourite colours together. How sweet are these ideas? Add a bit of garden robe and a pretty heart shaped tag. You can be as creative as you like. Ribbons, sparkles etc!?



Keep It Simple:

Do not go overboard either sweet and simply is stunning too. Natural and lovely. Not over crowded.


The great thing about up-cycling is that no one in the world has the exacted same flower vase as you!! Do they?

Do you like to up-cycle?

If so, what is your favourite thing to restyle?

What flowers would you pop into these jars?

I know my favourite flowers would be coloured roses!
