First, I removed the label & washed the container. Then, I cut off the top & cut two slots in the sides. Next, I spray painted the bottle with Krylon Looking Glass spray paint & mixed equal parts vinegar & water into a spray bottle. Immediately after spraying, I applied the vinegar/water mixture & blotted with a paper towel - this added a mercury glass effect.

After this was dry I added dirt, Dollar Store gems & a cactus - allowing smaller parts of the plant to peek out. I then wrapped twine around the grooves in the bottle & hung it on my ceiling with a hook! I love how this turned one turned out!

I placed painters tape in geometric designs, & added metallic spray paint to these to add a little style to them. I then filled them with Dollar Store gems & beads. This is such a great way to organize & have easy access to craft supplies! I also added twine (these are really great containers to keep twine organized because you can close the lid on the end of it & hold it in place!) You can add pretty much anything to these - the possibilities are endless.

First, cut a hole towards the bottom of the bottle, folding the top of the hole to create a rounded top. Next, grab a clothespin & cut a space for it to sit into on the bottom. Hot glue in place. Add some bird seed & hang in a tree for the birds!
