Trash to Treasure Multi Bud Vase

up-cycled syrup containers

A container with a selection of syrups re-purposed into flower vases.

Occasionally, okay a lot, I see something and it becomes something else other than what it’s intended purpose is. For example, I couldn’t wait for the syrup to be used in this syrup crate with four little bottles. To me it had possibilities for another life, not just being tossed into the trash.

I washed the four little bottles, painted the crate with chalk paint, distressed it a little, then waxed the crate. I drilled holes in the two ends to make a wire handle. I am not sure it will stay like this. I may do more with it but the simplicity of this flower container suits me for now. Happy crafting!
