YES! This fun upcycled craft is so easy that you can do it yourself OR have your kids help for some fun!
DIY Recycled Bottle Flower Vase Craft
I am sure you have a few bottles laying around that you could make this easy craft with! I used Johnson and Johnson’s baby lotion, baby bedtime wash and no more tangles detangling spray bottles for my craft today. But you could use any empty beauty type of product to make your recycled bottle craft.
All you need to do is to take your empty bottle and rinse it out very well and allow to dry. Then take yarn or string along with your hot glue gun and begin to wrap the yarn from the bottom to the top around the bottle – securing with a dab of hot glue to start and as you go along.
When you’ve covered up most of the bottle and you get to the very top, cut off the yarn and add a little more glue to keep it all from unraveling. That’s it! Add a flower of your choice and you’re done!
How super cute is this???!! My girls loved these bottles! We used artificial flowers to put in our bottles and put them in the girl’s bedrooms for decoration on their dressers. Look how adorable!
This is in my 10-year-old’s room. She’s all into cute, girly things and likes to personalize everything.
Look at her chalkboard in the background. Recognize that saying?? I sure do!
Upcycling items around your house are fun AND great for the environment. Plus, it teaches your kids good habits of recycling and using what they have instead of buying things new! I love it!
