DIY: Bottle centerpieces
Rather than throwing away empty glass bottles, recycle them for a vintage and chic table centerpiece.
Five empty glass bottles, one bottle being bigger than the other four
Clear scotch tape
Flower headband (optional)
Decorative duct tape (optional)
Decorative tissue (optional)
Make sure the contents in the bottle have been cleaned and poured out. Take off all the stickers on the bottle.
Take the decorative duct tape and wrap it around the mid-section of the four smaller bottles.
Taking the decorative tissues and push them down the spout of the four smaller bottles with a pen or comb, leave some of the tissue out of the spout to look like exploding champagne bubbles.
Decorative materials such as pebbles, sand or small candy can also be used to fill the bottles for an added spark.
For the bigger bottle, make sure to keep the lid so that it can be covered with decorative duct tape.
Tie a medium-size bow with the ribbon to the neck of the bigger bottle.
After cutting the flower headband in half, take the tail and wrap it around the body of the bigger bottle, securing it with clear scotch tape.
Place the decorated bottles in the center of a table, using a simple glass as the foundation of the bottles.
