Water 💦 Bottle, Water 💦 Bottle What to Do With so Many of You?

4 Materials
1 Hour
I needed a small, inexpensive and simple arrangement to sit on a table by my back door for added decoration. Looking at my available materials, I decided to use a water bottle as a container. No expense in using an empty water 💦 bottle. Perfect!
Remove the top
First I removed the label. Then, using scissors, I carefully off the top of the bottle at the first ridge.
Spray paint, so easy!
I used Rust-oleum gold spray paint to lightly coat the plastic water 💦 bottle.
Just a little color
I did not want the arrangement to be overbearing, but I did want a little color. So, I spray painted a few blueberry stems red and orange.
Added dried weeds and stems
I pulled weeds, dried grass and cut small tree stems to add to the spray painted blueberry stems. Next, I added small rocks topped with pea gravel to weight the container so it would not turn over easily.
Now to tie it all up!
I tied a bow using a piece of 4 ply craft jute cord to break up the height of the container.
Just the look 👀 I was going for, small, inexpensive and simple.
