Just want to show my other DIY stuff that I did, A vase made of recycled bottles. I thought it's pretty neat and a good idea. What is nice about this is you recycle the bottle and use it for something else instead of throwing it away.

There are plenty of bottles that are formed differently like it shown above so,you can choose the one that you like and wrap it with crepe paper. I use glue to stick it on the bottle and when its well wrapped you can cut any designs to put on it. Then afterwards polish it with clear varnish to look shiny, varnish also holds the crepe paper together so that it won't come off easily. This kind of vase you have to be very careful not to expose it with water or any liquids because its wrapped with paper the designs and the paper itself will melt or spoiled when it gets wet.
You can either use artificial flower to put in it or any flower arrangement that doesn't need water. But if you really want to use fresh flowers and put water in it make sure that the outside part of the bottle won't get in touch with water.
- Make sure the flowers are not too heavy or else the vase will tip over, but just in case it is heavy put some stones or marbles inside the bottle.
- Do not expose to direct sunlight because the crepe paper will fade.
- Do not place the vase on any wet surfaces.
- Need to wrap the bottle in multiple layers for best result.
Here's how I use the vase, I made the flowers as well. For me I think it look nice a handmade vase with my handmade flowers. All this things I learned way back home when I was studying vocational courses, I choose to learn different kinds of crafts which I love to do that includes my bow making and gift wrappings.
I also known as one of the best student in class because of my neat creations and unique hand techniques. It might look easy to see but seriously it's quite hard to do manually. I'm just thankful that I still remember doing this until now because I don't have any notes for all this I just remember it by heart.
That's why I keep making them to help myself to remember everything I learned in school, and the one that I made I gave them to somebody as a gift like Mother's Day. And now I will share it to my readers and followers of this blog.
This is my handmade crafts for this week see you again next time for more handmade stuff and ideas.
