Bottle Vases

Here is an idea for using your empty New Years Eve bottles...


Flower Vases



How I made them
First, I soaked the bottles in hot soapy water to help the labels come off easier.  
Second, I used Goo Gone to get the remaining label off.
Third, I spray painted, mod podged and tin foiled the bottles.
  






To mod podge the bottle I painted it on with a brush then tore out pages from an old book and stuck them on to the bottle.


For the tin foil bottles I mod podged the bottles then wrapped the tin foil around it.

Creative, I like the painted blue one. How does the tinfoil one look? I mean, do you like the tinfoiled one? Also are those Martinelli bottles?

Yep they are, my favorite one is the painted blue one too! I think the tinfoil ones are fun for the holidays and the other ones are cute year round
