craft day happiness; upcycled bottle decorations

This year I have been consciously reducing my waste by analyzing all that I consume and keeping the things that can be  re-used or turned into something new. I have found that packaging like cereal boxes or plastic netting that holds fruit can be beautifully crafted into a lovely card or collage. I knew that I could find SOMETHING to do with the beautiful glass bottles that I had accumulated over the past months of soda and limeade consumption. There was the obvious of turning them into flower vases. But the problem with that is I don't have much table space for tons of flower vases... solution?.. Hanging flower vases!! The next challenge? How to decorate them without consuming anything extra than I already have available.. solution? My big bag of fabric scraps that I am ALWAYS trying to reuse instead of throwing into the trash! This craft truly does bring happiness! It used up a ton of my fabric scraps, freed space from my cupboard, and makes my patio super inviting!

BOTTLES! WHAT TO DO WITH THEM?!

felicity helped inspect the bottles... Take a clothes hanger and wrap around the bottle- then to secure it in place wrap floral wire around

i used glue and water the wrap the bottles with fabric.

I hope you look twice next time you are about to throw that glass bottle into the recycle bin! Get wrapped up in happiness and enjoy your pondering!
