While Jess is trying to breathe and catch up on her crazy life I’m going to step in and share with you a simple, inexpensive project.

I’m a bit of a weird-o about recycling in crafts. I will use anything and everything for anything and everything. I’ve used toilet paper rolls to make gift card holders, paper plates for baskets, and cheese graters for votive holders. Today I’m reusing bottles for a charming and sweet flower centerpiece.

Supplies:

bottles (you’ll need 7. I used mini beer bottles)
twine
hot glue
flowers

Directions:

1. Take off the labels on your bottles

2. Assemble the now clean and soapy bottles (mine are extra bubbly!) with one in the center and the rest surrounding it.

3. Tack them together with hot glue.
This isn’t enough to hold them permanently. But, it will keep them sturdy while you work.

4. Tack down the start of the twine with hot glue

5. Now wrap.
Go around and around until you are happy. Then hot glue the end down.

Note: I hot glued a small doily and twine bow on the front of mine. Add water to the bottles and stems of your favorite blooms.

Thanks so much for having me!! Stop by these places to see me anytime…

    Great idea to group together similar bottles. I spread out the vases/bottles and it doesn’t pack as much a punch as this idea does. Will be trying it!
