Decorating with paper doilies!!

Remember the table arrangement I did on Thursday. The centerpiece was made by a row of glass bottles with pretty colorful flowers in it... So today I am going to show you how to up cycle/ reuse/ decorate plain bottles to use them as vase..(I know I said Sunday but I am so super excited that I am writing this two days earlier..:)) This one is very easy ...For this you need:

Small sized paper doilies, Clear glass bottles(used, emptied and washed) , flowers , scissors ..thats it!!  So let's start..


Take a small sized doily.. Fold it into triangle ..


Then cut it so that a circle will remain in the center..Another way could be a draw the glass bottle neck shape on the doily and cut it..



It should look like this..


  Thats it.. now put it in the bottles neck ..


and fill it with water, salt and flowers.. done!!!



Arrange many bottles the same way in a row.. 





Done... Isn't it easy way to decorate your table plus to reuse your glass bottles..

I will share some more ways to up cycle bottles soon...!!!

Hi -

Sometimes the more simple the project the better it is. This is one of those. A classic in my book. I love doilies and your simple tweak to each of the jars is simply stunning. I can't wait to do this. I have slew of pickle jars I am going to do this on.
