Antique vintage bottles as vases

Wondering if you’ve seen this clever technique I came up with to use old antique vintage bottles as flower vases. I added a twist.  They are etched and stenciled to give them lots more character. You can find etching kits at a hobby stores. On the far right, I’ve used some wallpaper stencils left over from another home we owned. The other three bottles have scrapbook stencils applied. Have you done anything like this? My son found these bottles at an old homesite. He was doing some weeding for the neighborhood cleanup and said–hey–my mom would love these! I do. I like using gingham, twine, and satin for the bows. Those are dried hydrangea blooms from my garden.

Or use seed pods!

This is a dried lace cap hydrangea

I use cider bottles too. These are my dried ‘Incrediball’ hydrangea blooms

Love the look of this black tree on clear glass–and then the contrast of the green hydrangea bloom–topped of with a black and white bow–this is my favorite.

I sold them all at the local farmer’s market.
