My husband bought me a delicious wine for mother’s day. Not only was it quite tasty, but I really liked the way the bottle looked!
I finished it last night, but I hated to toss it. I pondered nearly all day. I rummaged through craft drawers and thought of making it into a vase or even planting a tiny spider plant inside. Then it hit me. BAM! I am going to “bedazzle” this thing MeloMomma style and turn it into a plant watering device. Not only did it turn out awesome but it is 100% functional and added a little extra pizzazz to my plant and kitchen.
I am thinking this screams “Christmas Gift Idea”!
What you will need:
- Empty wine bottle (don’t have too much fun achieving this part!)
- Hot glue gun
- Glue stick
- Gems (be creative if you have nothing on hand. I had a broken pair of flip flops that had gems on them… Hint hint. I disassembled the shoes and got the gems. Broken jewelry works great too!)
- Glitter balls
Using a hot glue gun decorate your wine bottle. Add only small sections of glue at a time. It dries too fast to work with large batches. Place the decor as desired.
When finished add water. Turn upside down and place deep into your plant holder. You will notice a lot of water coming out at first. Don’t worry. It is just giving your thirsty plant a drink. When the soil is wet enough it will stop.
I was trying it in a few plants to make sure it was functional. Yes! IT IS!
