Simple Spring Decor Wine Bottle / Vase


From North of the Boulevard~


Turning a wine bottle into a decor item can be done in a number of ways, but one of the easiest is using nothing more than a little spray paint, some ribbon and some pretty flowers. Before  you toss that empty wine bottle, think about how easy it would be to turn it into a vase. This project was done in very little time, cost very little and adds some spring time color to my decor.

Wine Bottle Vase

Materials Used:
  • Empty Wine Bottle
  • Spray Paint
  • Ribbon
  • Silk Flower Stems
I especially liked the shape of this bottle. It's Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Riesling. The wine was pretty good, too!  After washing the wine bottle, I used Krylon Cover Maxx to cover the bottle.

This color is Ballet Slipper/Gloss.

Once it dried, I tied two pieces of sheer pink ribbon around the neck into bows.

 I added the flower stems which I bought at JoAnns using a 40% off coupon.

That's it! Sometimes, a project this simple can turn out to be a dud. Sometimes, though, they are turn out just right.

Are you like me and have a hard time tossing bottles, jars and cans because you know that they can be turned into some pretty decor?
