Grumpy found this bottle of wine at our local bottle shop and had to buy it!
He had to buy it – I had to find something to do with it for my Odd Sock Series! Thus I present… ‘The odd Sock Wine bottle vase decorated with an odd sock’ – or ‘wine bottle vase’ for short!
What you need: An empty wine bottle, an odd sock with a pattern you like,
and ribbon (optional).
Step 1: Pull the sock onto the bottle. Arrange it how you want it.
Step 2 (optional): If you would like to you can tie the ribbon around the neck. I didn’t have the best ribbon – it would look nicer with a different type!
Step 3: Fill with water.
Step 4: Put in flower/s.
Step 5: Enjoy your new vase!
The wine bottle also looks good with a shorter sock – or a longer sock cut down as shown above. If you cut the sock it is easy enough to sew the cut section together to sit under the bottle.
The review: I really like how this vase looks and it if very quick and easy to make if you need a vase for a flower or two. The vase obviously wouldn’t hold a lot of flowers and you need long-stemmed ones for this to work – but my favourite flowers are gerberas so that doesn’t bother me. I don’t drink wine, but if you do, you have a good excuse to buy a bottle! All in all I think this is a good use for those lonely Odd Socks.
