How to Make Bottle Garland

15 Minutes
There are so many garland ideas around. I saw an idea for a bottle garland on Antique Farm House and decided to make one for myself. This is an inexpensive garland to make.
You will need to find or purchase a few small bottles. You can find them at garage sales, Goodwill or you may have them around your house.
Make sure that the bottle has a rim at the top so you can wrap the wire around the bottle. I made a twisted wire with 4 strands. You can read how to make your own twisted wire at this post.
Small bottles with ridged tops work best. Next make your own twisted wire hangers.
Once I had the twisted wire made, I placed the three bottles in place and then wrapped the wire around each bottle.
After each bottle was wrapped, I added metal leaves and fresh plumbago flowers.
My bottles were small so a light wire was adequate. If you use a larger bottle, you may need to use a heavier wire. Also, remember that the bottles will be heavier when you fill the with water. I used only three bottles, but you could use more.
In this picture, I added some bougainvillea. Add whatever flowers are in season or you can add artificial flowers if you want.
This is an easy and cheap garland to make. Mine cost about a $1. Try one for yourself.
