Vases from Bottles

Something very simple today.  I came across this idea in a Martha Stewart craft book.

From left to right, the original bottles contained - ginger beer, bath oil and washing up liquid.  I sprayed them with off-white matt paint and fixed lace around the necks.  Then I made the decorative tags from polymer clay and embellished them, and threaded ribbon through the holes.

I found that the lighter bottles need weighting down if they're not to fall, or be blown, over: I used rice.

These sit on my kitchen window sill and bring a bit of brightness into my life every time I wash dishes.
