Make a “Be Lucky” Bud Vase!! (St. Patrick’s Day project)


Hi all!! I’m Tracie and I am thrilled to be here at Jen’s today! She is one of my
“bloggie idols”….and she has got to be one of the nicest and most sincere bloggers I have come in contact with. Thanks so much Jen for having me here today….

Here is a super way to repurpose an old bottle. I used a wine bottle…cause I have a few laying around…girl’s night last weekend…nuff said.

Anywho, I thought maybe if I used some fun green thread that I had on hand (or I stole it from my daughter…moving on…)

And I wrapped the thread around the bottle…tied on some cute ribbon and a tag…and sha-bam! A new bud vase :)

Here is how I did it…

  1. Charming project. I wonder if my husband would let me do this to some old beer bottles he saved from special occasions. They’d look so much prettier this way! Probably not. 😉 Thanks for sharing the idea…I can think of a dozen applications for this technique.

  2. love how easy and quick this is

  3. Love it! I love that green color of the yarn! So bright & fun! Thanks for sharing! Heidi Rew from PartiesforPennies.blogspot.com
