or perhaps a Flowered Candle Holder/Vase?
(sparkling water + splash of apple juice = mmm-good).
I saved all the bottles because I knew that these cute little vessels had strong upcycling/crafting potential. I've already dreamed up some ideas for Christmas, but since I can't go there yet, I quickly whipped up something more seasonally appropriate.
The Low Down
What you need:
Empty and clean plastic apple-shaped Martinelli Apple Juice Containers
Hydrangea stems (one stem per container)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
It took about an hour to make three. I think... I'm trying to pay better attention to the amount of time it takes to do these projects, but sometimes interruptions are inevitable-- mommy, i want milk. mommy, my car is stuck under the couch. mommy can you play chutes & ladders with me? You get the picture. :)
i started at the top of the bottle and worked my way down. i tried to cover the plastic without smashing the flowers together.
not bad for an upcycle project. and since the hydrangea stems were only $2.00 each, not bad for the pocketbook either.
