DIY Vintage Bottle Vases

I adore old things, and I have a collection of bottles in all shapes, sizes and colors. I thought – why not use these to hold flowers? Hence, these adorable DIY vintage bottle vases. So pretty! These would make cute decor elements or individual wedding favors, too.

I have three different kinds of vintage bottle vases to show you today, and all of them are super simple!

Often I get flowers from the store, and just popping them into a single vase isn’t enough. They end up clumpy and not very well arranged. This is a wonderful way to spread them out over several vases, and it’s oh so cute!

Clear Vintage Bottle Vases

All you need are bottles – I used 8, but you can choose any amount – flowers and twine. Super easy! Check out the supplies below, and you really can use any type of bottle. For mine, I chose 8 bottles that were identical.

All I did was set the 8 of them together, tie them with twine, add water and flowers, and voila! You have a vase for your flowers. One tip I have is to make the vase in the place you have planned for it to go. Otherwise, it’s really hard to move the bottles around in a grouping.

Colored Vintage Bottle Vases

This is probably my favorite! You need the same supplies: flowers, twine and vintage bottles in different colors and heights.

And the same method applies. Put them in a grouping, and tie together with twine. Add water and flowers, and you’re good to go!

Small Vintage Bottle Vases

You guessed it! It’s almost the same supplies, except this time I traded out twine for washi tape. I used tiny bottles to hold smaller blooms, and the washi tape just adds a cute touch. This is perfect for a small accent on a desk or side table.
