Bottles reused

There are winds of destiny that blow when we least expect them. Sometimes they gust with the fury of a hurricane, sometimes they barely fan one’s cheek. But the winds cannot be denied, bringing as they often do a future that is impossible to ignore.

-Message in a Bottle, Nicholas Sparks

Music theme: Time in a bottle – Jim Croce

Days of Christmas and New Year celebrations are over. What is left are some good memories and few empty bottles of sparkling wine.
It would be such a pity to throw those beautiful bottles away, so I decided to upcycle them and make some decorative items with them. Well, a vase was obvious choice.
Materials: empty bottles, bamboo sticks, hot glue gun, spray paint and acrylic paint in tubes.

I applied hot glue on the bottles, sprayed them and then put on some paint on the embellishments with my fingers.

I painted bamboo sticks with matching colours, and my vases were born.
