Valentines vase

To add to the Valentines decor, I recycled a wine bottle for this cute little vase.  All I used was an empty wine bottle, some hot water.  glass frost and vinyl.  You could probably get away with using stickers, but I stuck with my vinyl.


I tried using Un-do to get the label off the wine bottle, but that didn't work.  I used good old fashion hot water and a dish scrapper to get it off.


I followed the directions on the can of frost, it's real easy to use, it just smells really bad, but it makes it look great.  Let it dry and you're ready for the vinyl.


cut vinyl to your desired shape, word, etc.  Place on bottle using your contact paper, if you didn't read that post, you can check it out here.


 Put some pretty roses, candy or anything to your desire and it's done.
I hope you enjoy!  Have a wonderful Friday!
