Creating Flower Vases Out Of The Unexpected

This projects can be completed within minutes and the cost is minimal. All you need is a couple of old bottles and some 18 gauge wire. Once you have wrapped the bottle all you have to do is create a wire handle. Then, just add some flowers from your garden and It looks fabulous. I have used this same concept to create candle holders to hang from the trees in the backyard.

In the past, I have used this project to place an individual flower arrangement at each place setting on the table. If you enlarge the holes (I used an ice pick) the lid acts as a flower frog. I used new inexpensive salt shakers however, you could collect some vintage ones.

  4. Hello! My name is Jo Carol Spurlock and I live in Abilene, Texas. I stumbled on to your blog and when I read your profile, it sounded just like me and my passion to recreate found objects. I have a booth in a wonderful antique mall and I love selling my items...some created and others picked up at Estate and garage sales. We are truly kindred spirits! Visit my blog and you will see!! In the next few days I will do a post on some of my fun creations. I have several vases (old glass containers) with cute tags. I also just finished "Memory Jars" to be filled with fun things from one's vacation. I have loved finding the pretty glass containers to use in both of these projects! Tata for now! Love your blog!
