quick, upcycled decor

Bottle twine1
This is a quick & fun decor detail you can alter in so many ways for what you want.
Bottle twine2
The bottles are all from my recycle bin.
Frappucionos that Miss M has been drinking lately.
Spanish beer we picked up on a whim.  I’m always attracted to Spanish products because of my father’s side of the family.
Ginger beer for my moscow mules.  This is the small brown bottle & this is the one that got me.
Bottle twine3
I loved the profile.  The size.  The color.  I had to do something with it.
And that’s how I got here.
Bottle twine4
I started by antiquing all the bottles.  I showed how to do this here when I created the potion bottles for halloween.
Then I tied twine around the top of the bottles & tied them all together to hang in this open frame I have in my kitchen.
The frapuccino bottle is full of mini pine cones from my back yard.
Bottle twine5
One of the brown bottles is full of my limelight hydrangeas from the back porch that have dried out beautifully.
I love how it all came together.
Bottle twine6
Best part is that it didn’t cost a dime.
It’s actually trash for most people, from the bottles to the dead flowers to tree sheddings.  LOL
Love it!
I got my turkey today & all my other shopping is done.
Now I’m prepping, chopping & baking.
Are you ready?
Happy Primping!
