Once the DIY bug bites you, it gets hard to throw anything that can possibly be upcycled or prettyfied away. Since my wedding, I have been struggling to throw away any pretty glass bottles. So my garage is stacked with boxes of bottles (labels already removed) just gathering dust, waiting to be transformed. I needed to start somewhere, so I grabbed one and made this little vase then added some lavender from my first year lavender bush in my garden. Fresh flowers in the house just oozes summer!
Step 1: Before you start, make sure the bottle is clean and completely dry. Place the bottle on some newspaper outside or in a ventilated area.
Step 2: Spray the bottle from a distance of about 30 cm to get a smooth coat. Wait for it to dry before adding another coat if necessary.
Step 3: Decorate the bottle vase with some twine, ribbon or string. I like the rustic look of the string to go with my bathroom.
Step 4: Fill with water and pick some fresh flowers to arrange.
