Hanging Vintage Soda Bottle Vases

God always blesses us so that we can be a blessing. 


Last month I shared about how I am learning to grow right where I'm planted,
through gardening in my little backyard potager.
Besides providing an abundance of fresh veggies and life lessons in hard work,
this small garden can now add party venue to its resume.
and along with a DIY mason jar chandelier for the arbor,
I created a cluster of hanging vases for the pergola entry.
I wanted to share it with you today!

What you will need:

4 recycled vintage glass soda bottles
several yards of hemp or jute twine
fresh cut flowers
hook or nail for hanging


Cut a length of twine twice the length that you'd like for your vase to hang, plus 4 inches.
Fold the length of twine in half...


...wrap folded end around the neck of the bottle and thread the double ends through the loop...


...tighten, then make a double overhand knot with the two ends.



Repeat for each glass bottle, hanging them evenly at various lengths...


...secure ends together using a noose knot or simply double knot again while keeping a loop at the end.
(Whatever it takes to get it to hang securely from a hook or nail.
Make sure the knot is secure and will not slip.)



Fill bottles with water and fresh flowers, and hang on a hook or nail. Simply lovely!
