Beer bottles and flowers!

Today's post is what I was doing yesterday...
it all started with a bottle of beer.  I'm not much of a beer drinker but Keith wanted me to try this ale.
Heck I made chili and beer is supposed to go good with it.

Well I'm sure the recycle guy loves to see our house with beer and wine bottles, and of'course my Diet Pepsi cans.  So what if we could find creative uses for them.
Vases....hmmm let's make some flowers with fabric scraps....

Ok bottle is still ugly....But what if I cover the bottle.  That idea came from a book/magazine I bought a few months ago called 101 Patchwork Projects & Quilts by

So here is my first beer bottle cover!

And here is the finished project.  Now the possibilities of covering a wine bottle and in any color I want and to match any room too!  I feel so proud of myself to find my inner re-cycle side.

So what item do you re-cycle and turn into crafty new ideas?

Have a happy Monday! - Judy


  1. This is so cool!. You deserve the Green Queen of the Year award for this clever recycling.

  2. Very cute! I've just covered tins for my scrap room and for cookies at holidays.
