I picked up these vintage spice bottles a few weeks ago when I was in New York for the Country Living Fair.  When my mom saw them laying in a dirty old box at a barn sale, I instantly remembered my grandmother having some like this in her kitchen.  Isn’t it funny how something so little and insignificant can take you right back?

I had been on the lookout for little glass jars to make into vases and these were the perfect size!  They were still in great shape, and, because they were made of glass, had help up very well… even their original labels.vintage spice bottlesI wanted the bottles to stand out and be the centre of attention once they were vases, so I used jute twine to hang them with.  It’s nondescript nature, neutral tone and sturdiness made it a great choice.   I cut six pieces, in similar but slightly different lengths, to use to hang the jars from.  twine-attached-vintage-bottledThe long pieces were attached to the sides of each bottle neck with hot glue.  adding twine to vintage spice bottles so that they can be hungThen, by wrapped the twine around the bottle necks, it covered up the ends of the pieces used for hanging and added some character. adding hemp twine to vintage spice bottlesI love how the twine looks perfectly at home with the flowers!  While it adds something special to the little glass bottles, it takes nothing away from their beauty at the same time. vintage spice bottle with purple flowersAfter adding the beautiful wildflowers, these little vintage spice bottles became the perfect vases.  hanging spice bottles with wildflowersI love when something small and simple, like these little vintage jars, can be used again in a new way to remind us of our past.  vintage spice bottles turned into vases for wildflowersa beautiful pink peony in a vintage spice bottleAnd on another note… be sure to hop over to the Recreated Designs Facebook page for a special 15% off coupon code for the Etsy shop!

    What an adorable idea and you can reuse the old botles which I love.

    • Isn’t it great when you can reuse something for a completely new purpose? I just loved the look of these little bottles!
