You can make these upcycled bud vases in less than 15 minutes!
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.
Look around your own vanity or bathroom counter for possible bottles you can easily upcycle. Easy peasy!

I love that these are already gold!! Thanks for joining!
Thank YOU for inviting me Angie – I love the Craft Lightning events so much! (And yes, the bottles being gold already is fantastic!)
Wow, Laura! Talk about thinking outside the, er, bottle! Your vases are just lovely! xoxo
Thanks Pat! It took a bit of staring at them until I realized I could have (almost) instant bud vases! 🙂
Love how elegant these look… especially considering their humble beginnings!
Thanks so much Carolina! No doubt I’ll have an army of these eventually…unless someone invents how to reverse aging! LOL
