Upcycling Glass Bottles

One of the biggest trends in home decor has been upcylcing old and useless items that would otherwise become trash. Glass bottles don’t exactly fall into this category since they can be recycled, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be repurposed for home decor!

An easy way to upcycle glass bottles is to use them as flower vases, but you can only go so far with the bottle staying intact. Being able to cut them in half, or even just opening the mouth a little, can open up a bunch of possibilities.
