Glass bottle turned into a flower vase

Whenever you need something to put your flowers into but don’t have a vase, you need to improvise. Usually the easiest way of doing that is by using a glass bottle. It might be perceived as a temporary solution because it lacks the beauty and style vases usually have, but that can be easily changed.

So let’s see how you can turn a simple glass bottle into a lovely bud vase by using the decoupage technique. You can use either a glass or a plastic bottle. For that you’ll need a glass or a plastic container, a mod podge, a paint brush or sponge, scissors and some colored or patterned paper. First you need to wash and dry the container. Than use the paper to cut it into ½ -1 inch strips or squares. Next, take the pieces of paper and place them face down on a flat surface. Use the paint brush or the sponge to cover the back of the paper with mod podge.

Take one strip or square at a time and apply them to the container. It’s easier to start at the bottom and work your way up. You’ll need to cover the entire container with paper and you can even apply another layer if you want the vase to be more opaque. After you’re done, apply a top coat of glue to seal and protect the paper and let it dry. Feel free to customize and adapt this design toy our own preferences. You can even add some more details, maybe a ribbon.{found on goinghometoroost}.
