Upcycled Bud Vases from ROC® Skincare bottles

Upcycled Bud Vases from ROC Skincare bottles

You can make these upcycled bud vases in less than 15 minutes!

It’s true!

Crafting doesn’t have to take a ton of time, so all this week me and a bunch of my crafty friends are sharing our quick crafts as part of the latest edition of Craft Lightning!

I use ROC® Skincare – no, they aren’t paying me to share this – and I’m collecting quite a few of their pretty glass bottles. (And if they ever discontinue their Deep Wrinkle Serum I will cry. Literally.)

The gold bottle color is so lovely – and so in these days – and those labels easily peel off!

It’s like these little glass bottles are begging to be recycled into something sweet!

I picked up some decorative fabric tape at the craft store. I measured out where I wanted the fabric on each bottle, then simply cut off matching strips to use. I love the vintage-look of these prints!

While at the craft store, I also picked up some cheerful fabric daisies, and snipped off the stems to make them fit into these little bud vases perfectly!

Oh – and I’m saving these leftover stems: they can be recycled into another craft project down the road! (They make excellent sticks to attach vintage images for my tiny spool crafts.)

Now I have a trio of beautiful bud vases!

Since I’ll be using more of these bottles – unless my wrinkles miraculously disappear – I’ll be adding more bud vases to this collection.

      Thank YOU for inviting me Angie – I love the Craft Lightning events so much! (And yes, the bottles being gold already is fantastic!)

      Thanks Pat! It took a bit of staring at them until I realized I could have (almost) instant bud vases! 🙂

      Thanks so much Carolina! No doubt I’ll have an army of these eventually…unless someone invents how to reverse aging! LOL
