Reuse glass bottles as flower vases

DO IT YOURSELF

              

Glass bottles can be recycled in so many ways. You can paint them with spray, you can cut them in half, you can decorate them in several ways. However, some glass bottles have such an unusual and interesting shape that can be used as they are.

The only thing you have to do it to take the label off the bottle. For this, you must put the bottle into warm water and let it soak for a while. Then you will be able to pull of the label easily. Scrub the bottle with water to make sure that all glue will come off. 

  • Play with the arrangement: In this project, four glass bottles of retsina "kechribari" were arranged in-line on the top of a low bookcase. This linear, strict arrangement was ideal for this minimal appartment.

Grass and leaf brooms (or leaf rakes) are made by metal, and their wires are so flexible that can be even bended by hand. So, you can easily make a wall hanger for kitchen utensils and towels without using any special tool. 

All you have to do is bend with your hands a few wires making the hooks. If needed, you can make more hooks by simply bending more wires.
