I wanted to share one of the many projects I have wanted to do but never seem to finish. I have been seeing old bottles everywhere, and I wanted to do something with the ones that I found in my grandfather's old garage. I really wanted to put them in the box, but was not sure that would work. After seeing an inspiration photo, I decided to do it.
They were really dirty, so I got out a galvanized tub and put the bottles in with oxy clean, which is *wonderful* for cleaning out the inside of things.
Here is the inspiration photo from Shanty 2 Chic:
Although this is a smaller box with smaller bottles, I worked with what I had. I am, however, planning on making having my husband make a smaller version.
Here is mine again...
I put one leyland cypress branch in every other bottle and a chunky candlestick in the others. I actually had cypress in each one, but I like to have candles on the table, so I took every other one out.
This wire was on each of the bottles and was holding them to a rod in the garage where they were hanging. I decided to leave some of them knowing my grandfather put them there. I like the added interest also.
So yet another idea for the box. This is also one I can change out with different stems/flowers as they come into season. I also have plenty of green bottles I'm going to try.
Thanks so very much for stopping by! I am still desperately trying to get back to comments from Christmas, so do not give up on me:-)
Also I decided a facebook page was much more manageable than the Far Above Rubies facebook account I have already, so I would love to have you go by HERE and join.
I'll be joining:
