Etched Glass Antique Bottles with Hydrangea Blooms

Stenciled, etched, or painted antique bottles make elegant vases for dried hydrangeas. Just a little bit is all you need. Match the bow as I’ve done here and this will look very unique in your decor. This is a dried ‘Incrediball’ hydrangea bloom.

I left the grundge inside cause it looks weathered and worn.

To the far right you can see that I’ve used a brown bottle and applied a fern stencil. I prefer the clear bottles.

Dried coneflower seed heads.

And of course an old cider jug is perfect for the large hydrangeas. Do you have some old bottles that you can repurpose?

    Anna,
    You did these yourself? I’m thinking about setting up a sandblaster and doing designs on recycled wine bottles. I have learned to cut them into glasses and vases quite easily. The sand blaster would be expensive to do it right a big air compressor would be required.
