Gift Idea: Upcycled Wine Bottle Vases for Mom with Free Printable

Hello Tatertots and Jello readers! My name is Aniko and I blog over at Place of My Taste.

Aniko Levai.headshot1I am so thrilled to be here again to share something pretty with you all today. Mother’s day is only 2 days away and it’s a BIG day as we celebrate the most important woman in our lives.

If you have not found the perfect gift for MOM yet, I will show you how you can make these pretty amazing wine bottle vases in no time for your MAMA.

Beautiful gift for Mom by Place of my Taste

Are you ready to see how I created this beautiful gift?

First you need to dig out 2 empty wine bottles from your recycling can ( or any other long neck bottles would be perfect )

Other things you will also need are:

– 2 different color spray paint

– rubber bands

– colorful ribbon to embellish

– fresh flowers

Wine bottles to pretty vases by Place Of My Taste

I chose white and ocean blue spray paints for my project. I really loved these colors together.

1. I spray painted both bottles, one with white, one with blue spray paint. I let it dry completely.

2. Once the paint was dry, I pulled on a handful of rubber bands for each bottles. The painted bottles looked great already but I wanted to create some sort of design on them to make them more unique. As you see on the picture below, there was no particular order that I followed with the rubber bands. They were randomly placed on the bottles. I sprayed the bottles again, but this time I chose the opposite color for each bottles.

3. I let the paint dry completely and once everything was super duper dry I slowly started pulling the rubber bands off of the bottles.

Easy enough, right?

I really loved how these bottles turned out.

For embellishment, I used pretty strawberry pink ribbons on the bottles.

I put fresh TULIPS (check out more gorgeous shot of these tulips HERE ) into the vases.

I created a super cute MOTHER’S DAY PRINTABLE CARD to go with these vases to get the look I wanted.

Beautiful Gift for MOM


mom you are so beautiful printable

I really believe that homemade gifts are worth a thousand times more than the most expensive gifts!

They are made with LOVE and are given from the bottom of our hearts.

  1. Made these today… Totally bummed. Let the coats dry and waited about 8-10 hours once they were done before taking the rubber bands off. The spray paint peeled underneath the rubber bands :( they don’t look good. ;( any suggestions?

  2. Aniko, these are so pretty! I confess that I always get teary-eyed around Mother’s Day..I lost my mom almost 10 years ago so I’m the momma now. I would love to make these for her, but maybe I’ll make them for me and think of her whenever I fill them with pretty flowers (which she loved). Thanks for the great thrifty idea!!
