DIY Wall-Mounted Bottle Vases





  1. Pin It

What happens when salvage shutters and vintage replica Coke bottles meet my imagination? 
You get a rustic, unique and vintage inspired wall mounted vase display for your home! 

My creative wheels started turning when the slats of a wooden shutter I had started to fall off. 
It had been used in our garden as a trellis, but was getting worn out and falling apart.
(It didn't help that my boys thought they were a part of their playground equipment...) 
But, in the spirit of repurposing and wasting less, I decided not to throw them away, 
 but to save the different pieces for my craft projects. 

And when I spotted these cool vintage-y Coke bottles at the grocery store around 
Christmas time, I couldn't resist buying (and drinking) them because I 
thought they would make great vases.  
So what did I do next? 
I repurposed these materials along with a few other random bits and pieces in my
 junk collection  to make project that I think turned out amazing! 

Want to make one of your own? Here's what I used:




(Tools you will need to assemble this include a drill and high-temp glue gun.)

And here is the tutorial:







And you're done! 
I used an old door handle as my "hook" to go along with my salvage style look. 
Here it is on my wall in my dining room with wintery pussy willows. I plan on changing out the flowers as the seasons change--maybe some fresh yellow ones for springtime next?
