Stylish vases made of (plastic) bottles
Do you have some empty wine bottles left from the holidays? Turn them into stylish vases. You could also use plastic bottles and mix different shapes and sizes, by using one colour they will still form a unity.
Sparkels and stripes are always a good idea, read at the blog of Pottery Barn how to make these stripped vases.
You could also create a colourful picture by using different colours from the same pallet that blend together. By painting them on the inside, you keep the nice shine of the bottles. It might be a bit of work, but it’s beautiful and the tutorial from Becoration will help you step by step.
