DIY Upcycled Vases

Spring has sprung and that means that this lady is all about adding a bunch of color to her house. I mean Spring is all about bringing new life, which is why I wanted to find a way to breathe some new life into some upcycled items. When I was gifted with a pack of these spicy ginger beers one night for my boys and I to enjoy I just loved the size of the bottles. They were small but the perfect size to do something with, so I cleaned them and saved them for a rainy day. When a rainy month came along it gave me time to find inspiration to create these super simple DIY upcycled vases.

WHAT YOU NEED

Bottles of your choice: use something recycled or go hunting for something simple at the dollar store or a thrift shop.
