Repurpose before you Recycle ... Create something ordinary into extraordinary#PalmoliveWM, #ad
“This is a sponsored giveaway with Mums the Word Network and Palmolive.
As most of you know one of my favorite things to do is recycling the ordinary into extraordinary! This post is none the different than some of my other projects I have done on "recycling what you have."
Like this Palmolive dish soap bottle that I have turned into a decorative bud vase. I loved the embossed curves on it and thought it would make a nice decorative bud vase to set along side my sponges and dishwashing brush on my refinished white tray. I don't know about you, but I have always found it a challenge as to where to house these items. Where do you put your sponges and dish brushes? Under the sink? On top of the sink? On the counter? I think I have finally met my challenge by creating a decorative space to house these items with what I would have recycled.
This bud vase can also be displayed standing upright to create another look for my dishwashing necessities vignette.
Here is how it was made
when the bottle was all assembled, I added a couple of metal embellishments with hot glue and spray painted the entire bottle
when the bottle was completely dried, I went along the sides and back coming up around the bottle following the embossed lines with green paint
dry brushed it with some white
I cut a couple of pieces of the metal ribbon and spray painted it white, once the pieces were dry I formed it and wrapped it around the neck of the bottle and hot glued it in place. This was done to hide the neck of the bottle and coordinate with the metal embellishments on the bottle
Placing some beans or rice in the bottle will help weigh it down. After filling it add a cork to keep the beans from falling out
Now for the fun part, decorating your bottle and filling your bud vase.
Inside the (k-Cup) now bud vase I arranged one of my favorites of faux succulents.
Not only was this fun to make... I love how it now gives my dishwashing essentials what I call a place to call home.
