Repurposed Soda Bottle Flower Vases

I’ve had a stash of pretty soda bottles sitting on a shelf in my pantry, ever since we built my pantry.  They looked cute sitting on the shelves, but really…who ever pays attention to what the shelves in my pantry have one them, other than food –  except maybe me?  I decided it was time to let some of them see the light of day, and turn them into something useful – like flower vases, because that gives me a good excuse to buy some pretty cut flowers (note to self…I must plant a rose bush!).
I used E-6000 to glue them together, laying them face down on my counter (sides touching), and running a bead of glue where they touched.  I wanted to make sure they would be really sturdy, since 3 of them are connected, and they’d all be holding water, so after they dried overnight, I added another layer of glue over the first and let it dry overnight again.
I wrapped wire around the top of the center bottle so it could be hung on a wall, but it looks just as pretty sitting on a table, or in a window sill, where the glass and water can catch the light.

Two of my bottles are vintage, but the center one only looks vintage.  Our local farm supply store sells soft drinks in the same style bottles they were originally sold in, so it’s an easy project to make, even if you don’t have a stockpile of truly old bottles, and you can enjoy drinking the soda first!
