This is one of my favorite crafts because, it is both family friendly and when the bottle is empty can re-purposed as a vase for long-stemmed flowers. This is a very nice DIY (Do it yourself) project that can brighten up decor at an event. Beyond adding a little bling, this makes for a great table giveaway or souvenir. The process video below shows a fully customized bottle where all the labels have been replaced. The following process video, walks through all the steps and supplies. For avid readers, the supply list and step-by-step instructions will be posted below.
