DIY Burlap Vases from Starbucks Frappuccino Bottles

You know I'm a sucker for Craigslist, right? Well one random day I came across Coke bottles in the "free" section. Thinking I might could use them for some cool art projects, I asked the seller (or giver in this case) if they were glass bottles, and the answer was unfortunately, "No, plastic." However, she did have a bunch of empty Starbucks frappuccino bottles, if I was interested, and it didn't take too long before I took her up on the offer.

Considering I was knee deep in wedding planning at the time, I had no doubt I'd find some sort of use for them, and sure enough, I did. Low and behold, burlap-wrapped vases.

Pin It

My grandmother soaked the bottles in a bucket of soap and water to clean away the gunk and labels. We then cut 2.5" x 8.5" strips of burlap and wrapped and hot glued them around the bottles.

They were indeed used at my wedding as well as several other occasions since, including my cousin's baby shower and a work wedding shower. Just throw a single daisy or other simple flower in them, and voila, decor.

So if you or someone you know is a Starbucks bottled frappuccino drinker, add this DIY project to your list.
