How to Make a Recycled Bottle Wall Vase
Cut your scrap wood to a 6-8" rectangle.
Trim your paper to fit on top, and ink the edges just to give it an old distressed look.
Coat both your paper and wood with Mod Podge, and seal them together. Apply an additional thin coat on the top of your paper. If you plan to put your vase outdoors, add a couple of extra coats.
After your Mod Podge is dry, center your glass bottle on the wood board, and measure how much trim you need. The metal trim I found cuts easily with scissors, but you may need pliers depending on how thick it is.
Next, take your screwdriver, and attach the metal trim with one screw on each side. Make sure you pull the trim really tight so the bottle does not move. If you are nervous that the bottle might slip out, just add a little glue on the back side of the glass.
Your bottle should fit snugly inside when you are done. If you need to add water to your vase, just carefully pour it inside without getting the paper wet.
