fresh and renewed – recycled glass oil bottle

July 16, 2013

There are so many vessels and containers in our kitchens that can be repurposed into vases; have a good look at the items you are considering discarding as they could become beautiful flower vases. For today’s Fresh and Renewed flower post I found a recycled glass oil bottle that I had no use for it in my kitchen, but noticed it was perfect for arranging flowers in. I loved the curvy shape of this oil bottle plus the green-blue tint of the recycled glass.

Is there anything in your kitchen that you can repurpose into a pretty flower vase?

    This is really pretty. It can also be done with a lot of different glass bottles. I was once at a wedding were people used glass soda bottles, painted them and put homemade liquor into them. It’s a nice way to reuse them. I’ve done something like this myself, I used glass jars for lamps. It looks nice and it’s eco-friendly!
