Recycled Art

I recently purchased a package of drinkable yogurt and couldn't bare to toss the empty bottles in the recycling bin! They were just too perfect for all the tiny flowers Maddie brings home from our walks.

With a little paint and a lot of waiting we ended up with some super cute teeny tiny little flower vases.


Maddie desperately wanted to pick all of the flowers in my garden but I had to limit her!

How cute! I'm a big fan of crafting with recyclables... great idea!

How funny, we totally did this awhile back too except we used glue and tissue paper to cover the bottles since I figured paint probably wouldn't stick to the plastic. I love how yours came out - what kind of paint did you use?

Very cute...I love reusing things for crafts too! Emily would love these because she is also a fan of picking flowers for Mommy when we are outside!
