It seems that day after day, the price of most things is going up. Sometimes pinching your pennies is wise, especially when it comes to small decorations. With so much knowledge at our fingertips, making our own beautiful creations is extremely easy. Here are a bunch of ideas that not only save money, but also re-use some bottles you may have laying around.
1. Picture frames from your old bottles.
Start off by cleaning the bottles with soap and warm water. This combination should be enough to get the labels off cleanly, but if it doesn’t work, you can always use some nail polish remover to remove the adhesive. Make sure to allow the bottles to dry before proceeding to the next step.
Next, roll up the photos that you want “framed.” A paintbrush, pencil, or any other long and narrow object should be used to push the photo into place. Try to open the picture up a little bit while it’s in the bottle.
Add some decorations and finishing touches (the sky is the limit with these) and you’re done! Seashells, rocks, sand, or whatever you want to use can be put inside the bottle to give it some depth. For more in-depth instructions, click here.
