PERFUME BOTTLE AS FLOWERS VASE (DIY)

perfume vase flowers diy francinesplaceblog

Awww, flowers! 
There is nothing better to transform a sad, grey, Autumn day in a positive and colored one.
It is getting so freezing here and I decided to warm up our home with a new bunch of flowers.
I showed you here in past how to display your flowers in marbled diy jars or in little pots, today
I want to share a super easy, but also so classy way to add a flowered touch to your home.
I looked for some inspirations on BloomNation, a flower delivery service that supports
local florists through their online marketplace, their site is full of gorgeous flowers projects
(check it out!), then I opted for some fresh flowers directly from my family's garden.
Lavender, Abelia (white flowers), Jacobaea maritima (yellow) and Ajuba Reptans (blue)
 for a delicate and simple outcome.
I decided to use an empty bottle of perfume as vase, because I know that it is always hard
throwing them away when the perfume is finished (they are TOO pretty to be thrown away, not?).
Let's see below how to do, even if it is so easy to understand.

Oh, fiori!
Non c'è nulla di meglio per trasformare una triste e grigia giornata d'Autunno in una più
colorata ed allegra.
Qui si sta facendo ogni giorno più freddo, così ho deciso di "scaldare" un po' la nostra casa con
un nuovo mazzo di fiori.
Vi ho mostrato in passato come decorare con i fiori usando barattoli marmorizzati fai da te o
minuscoli vasetti, oggi condivido un modo super facile, ma anche elegante, per dare un tocco 
floreale alla vostra casa.
Ho cercato qualche ispirazione su BloomNation, un sito pieno di progetti
floreali meravigliosi (date un'occhiata! Semplicemente bellissimo!), poi ho optato per
dei fiori freschi direttamente dal giardino dei miei.
Lavanda, Abelia (fiori bianchi), Cineraria (gialli) e Ajuba Reptans (blu), per un risultato
delicato e semplice.
Ho deciso di usare una bottiglia di profumo vuota come vaso, perché so quanto è difficile buttarle
via una volta finito il profumo (sono TROPPO belle per essere buttate, non è vero?).
Vediamo qui di seguito come procedere, anche se è davvero intuibile.

***

You need // Vi occorre:

- An empty perfume bottle. // Una bottiglia di profumo vuota.
- Pliers. // Pinze.
- Scissors. // Forbici.
- Your favourite flowers. // I vostri fiori preferiti.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
 Using the pliers, remove the hermetic closing of the bottle, then wash it well to remove
 perfume residuals. When done, add some water. // Usando le pinze, rimuovete la chiusura 
ermetica della bottiglia, poi lavatela bene per rimuovere eventuali tracce di profumo.
Una volta fatto, riempitela con un po' d'acqua.



2)
Cut the stalks of your flowers and insert them as you like most. // Tagliate i gambi
dei vostri fiori ed infilateli nella bottiglia come più vi piace.


3)
Voilà! Your perfume vase is done! I really love the sophisticated touch that it gives to the room. // 
Voilà! Il vostro vaso è pronto! Amo il tocco sofisticato che dà alla stanza.

  12. What a beautiful idea to recycle perfume bottles for an even prettier cause! I also hate throwing away such pretty bottles, so this would be a way of keeping them around for longer :)
