How to make a vase from a glass bottle
The ways of decorating glass bottles from wine, beer and other drinks are no less diverse. Despite the fact that their shape is much more difficult to change (maximum is to cut the neck), the vases made of glass bottles made by oneself are much more elegant and interesting. Vases made of high and narrow glass bottles are often used by "sets", placing in each of them 1-3 flowers.

Unlike plastic containers, a vase from a glass bottle is usually painted from the inside. The paint is simply poured into bottles, where it spreads freely over the walls. Thanks to this, the vases not only receive a new color, but also preserve the glossy gloss of the glass.

An exception is the process of painting with an aerosol. It allows you to evenly apply the paint on the surface of the glass, without the formation of smears. Use this option if you want to make matte vases of glass bottles with your own hands or give them the effect of an ombre.
Using stencils or hand painting skills, you can give a vase from a bottle a beautiful pattern.
