Are you a spice fan? Then you should also present your taste heroes beautifully! Pouring them into small bottles for decoration is a particularly appealing variant.

  • cool

…be kept. The bright glass can be decorated with pretty banderoles, so the contents remain aromatic for a long time. A piece of sheet film as a label is also particularly practical. The self-adhesive black film can be labeled with chalk and easily removed with a damp cloth.

Back to nature: decorative bottles as small vases

A meadow flower is often underestimated – especially if it is draped in a nice little decorative vase. You can use the decorative bottle just as well for small plant offshoots or seasonal decorative branches such as squirrels for Easter.

When using plants in the decorative bottle, it looks particularly nice if you give the decorative bottle a modern natural look. This works very easily with a sisal tape and some double-sided adhesive tape.

    Cut off so much of the double-sided tape that you can use it to encircle the bottle and attach it to it.

  2. step

    Then wrap the sisal tape around it in tight rows.

  3. step

    If you like, you can put other elements such as small leaves or artificial flowers between the tape and the adhesive tape.

More glow: decorative bottles as lighting elements

Glass elements are perfect for staging light. There are two variants for the bottle light:

  1. The decorative bottle as a candle holder
  2. The decorative bottle with fairy lights inside

With the candle holder variant, it should be borne in mind that the candle has the suitable size for the decorative bottle. If you want to spare the decorative bottle, use a wax catcher or a candle cuff. Alternatively, the wax can be frozen, melted or removed by scraping it off flat surfaces such as the bottle.

The second variant is as easy as it is beautiful. Ideally, you only need a string of lights with copper-wired lights and low heat emission as an accessory. Flexible copper wire is easy to bend and shape, so the string of lights easily fits in the bottle. The result is pleasantly subtle lighting that creates a cozy atmosphere and is also great for the garden.
