I recently moved here to Orlando from St.Pete for a new job… Once I signed the lease on my brand new Orlando apartment I knew I immediately had to start from scratch with decorating it. A fun, yet stressful task, let me tell you! With the holidays coming up I knew I had the advantage of using Fall, Pinterest and my creativity to benefit this new space. I pinned and pinned and once my apartment was coming together I realized there were some minor details missing. So off to Pinterest I went for more inspiration. All I needed was an empty bottle, fake flowers & some twine, ribbon and burlap.
What I had:
Empty beer bottles, empty wine bottles & a glue gun
What I bought from Hobby Lobby:
Ribbon, Twine, Lace, Burlap, Fake flowers & Eucalyptus leaves.
I took the bottles and soaked the labels off of them in my sink with hot water and dish soap. Once they were clean I cut some burlap, lace and ribbon to fit around the bottle. I glued them around the perimeter, added the flowers and then found a cute accent to glue to the front. All in all, the craft took about five minutes to complete once your supplies are together. I’m always up for a cheap, easy and fun craft!
The decorated bottle makes the perfect addition to my guest bathroom and makes my place feel even more homey. I love it. I can’t wait post again soon about other ways I’m using items around my house to decorate my new apartment!
