DIY Cascading Bottle Bud Vases


I got the inspiration for these cascading vases from a photo posted by a boutique I follow on Facebook. They were buying them from a trade show as decor for their shop but I knew I could make it myself.

I was going to try find some old bottles for the project but when I ran across these bottles at Michael's they were too perfect to pass up.



Aren't these colors gorgeous? I'm re-doing my balcony decor and I'm going with these bright colors as the theme.

I used simple twine to hang the bottles. I made a knot (shown below) and slipped it over the neck of the bottle. After pulling it tight, I wrapped the twine around several times then tied a regular knot to secure.



I did the same for all four bottles trying to keep them evenly spaced.


Finally, I hung it from a nail and filled with greenery and carnation buds. 



I'm so glad I went with the colored bottles. When the sun shines on them it is gorgeous! This is the perfect addition to the balcony makeover.
