Fallen buds

Does anyone else feel slightly saddened when they open a bunch of flowers to put in a vase only to find that some of the buds have fallen off?

Every time I consider taping them back on their stems and then I just end up giving in and throwing them away – such a waste.

We’ll not anymore! I’ve found a cute way of making the most of those precious buds whilst giving my home that country cottage chic I so adore!

The solution …. Beer bottles! 20140729-221809-80289005.jpg
This isn’t the first time I’ve gotten creative with those darn bottles that would otherwise pile up outside our backdoor making us look like alcoholics; I also made some pretty cute DIY beer bottle vases  and glitter dipped beer bottle vases. However having more of an appreciation for natural ( as natural as a beer bottle can be), perhaps raw is a better term to use? And having slightly less time on my hands, I think these are just as quirky and ten times simpler to do!

Thanks for reading 🙂 xx
