Easy bottle to vase transformation.

I've realised lately, that whilst flowers are a real treat for me (whether it be a single flower or a bunch) I really don't make any effort to display them in a special way. 
For years I have not really bothered to use my imagination when it has come to displaying them and have got away with using anything that has come to hand (a tumbler glass, empty pasta sauce jar or even a measuring jug!) to put them in.

O.k, so I am way to thrifty to actually go out and buy any vases. Preferring instead to use what I already have available and upcycling it. But using something that is upcycled to hold your flowers doesn't have to be less stylish than a shop bought vase.

Above is a glass bottle I transformed into a decorative vase with just a bit of lace and ribbon. It only took 5 minutes and looks so colourful (definitely not boring). There are so many options for decorating your old bottles/jars with embellishments and paints etc. So next time you think you don't have an adequate size vase, check your recycling, you might just have the perfect thing!
