Maria of Love & Sugar Kisses is stoppin’ by today with a great tip on how to use those fun and colorful bottles that so many of us tend to save even though we have no idea what we’re going to use them for!

I love collecting jars and bottles and find myself thinking of their possibilities whenever I get my hands on one. My husband recently tried a new beer in a bright blue bottle and as soon as I saw them, I knew I had to save a few. The blue bottles just seemed perfect for a 4th of July decoration!
To make these fun and festive centerpieces you will need:
- clean bottles (labels removed)
- scrapbook paper in assorted patterns
- paper lollipop sticks
- Glue Dots (or other adhesive)
The paper rosettes are super easy to make! Make them in a few different sizes to make your centerpiece more interesting. To begin, cut your paper into strips. The wider your strip the larger your rosette will be. Mine varied from approximately 1″ to 1 1/2″. Fold your strips of paper accordion style.
Once your strips are folded, place a Glue Dot on each end and attach to form the rosette. For smaller rosettes, use one strip of paper. For a larger one, attach two strips together with the Glue Dots. Cut a small circle out of scrapbook paper for the flower center and attach with a Glue Dot. Attach the lollipop stick to the back of the rosettes with another Glue Dot.
Cut your ribbon to your desired length, wrap around the bottle’s neck and tie into a bow. Insert your rosette flowers and arrange to your liking.
These would look adorable on your 4th of July table or on your mantle for a festive touch!
A simple and budget friendly decoration that will add a fun pop of color to your holiday get together! Hooray for the Red, White and Blue and Happy 4th of July to you!
