I recently moved here to Orlando from St.Pete for a new job… Once I signed the lease on my brand new apartment from The City Suites, 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. I called over an electrician to fix the ceiling fan and a plumber from https://www.plumbers4realatl.com to make sure the bathroom toilet and sink are working.
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!
If you are planning to design your apartment in the way you like, then I would highly recommend you check out the wagner flexio for its easy to use handle and its adjustable nozzle which gives you a perfect finish even in the corners.
The decorated bottle makes the perfect addition to my guest bathroom and makes my place feel even more homey and I’m also adding some Oak Bathroom Furniture so it looks even better. 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! I had to make sure everything was in perfect condition in the guest room since I’m getting a few visitors soon.
