REPURPOSE A GLASS MILK BOTTLE INTO A PRETTY VASE
To compliment the lace baby jar candle holders I made, I decided to make a vase in the same style. Instead of using fabric lace, I used paper lace doilies that I purchased from a thrift store for only 99 cents. The paper was easier to glue down because it is thinner than the fabric lace but if you don't have doilies go ahead and use fabric. If you are using fabric lace then I would recommend using a heavier, stickier glue like Tacky Glue. To make the vase you will need:
- Recycled glass milk bottle or any other glass bottle
- Lace paper doilies or fabric lace
- Mod Podge or any other glue that dries clear
- Old brush for brushing on the glue
Very few supplies are used to make this vase.
Start by cutting pieces of the lace doilie. I followed and cut out the designs of the doilie. Brush on the glue and apply the doilie to the bottle.
Apply another layer of glue on top of the doilie piece just to insure that it is glued completely. After you glue on all of the pieces I would recommend going over the entire bottle with another layer of glue. The Mod Podge I used is glossy so it gave the bottle a nice glossy look.
