Glass bottles make pretty great vases. If you want to squeeze in more than a single flower stem, consider sing a milk bottle or some other type that has a larger opening. You can decorate the bottles with rope or yarn. The process is very simple and you can find a description for it on greenweddingshoes. You can either start from the top or from the bottom. Use glue to keep the yarn in place as you wrap it around the bottle.

Instead of repurposing bottles or jars and transforming them into vases, a different idea can be to craft the vase from scratch. You could do that with air dry clay. Mold the clay to shape it as a container. Then press it against a flat surface to make a flat bottom. Let the clay dry and then paint your new vase. You can also use the container as a planter.
