Spring in a jar {ideas to use old bottles and jar}

I am a big recycler of things. I try to be atleast. Looking at all the things I collect, mostly it's a pleasure and sometimes pain (when they are still waiting to be turned into something beautiful and useful). And I specially love glass bottles and jars, so I keep all the little jars and bottles that come home in grocery packaging form, or if I order water at a cafe/restaurant and it's a glass bottle, it comes back home with me and is loved and used in many ways. Well, I must share in the process of doing the latter and while I have paid for the expensive water (comes in the bottle), 99% of the time the company I'm in is usually embarrassed about me walking out with the glass bottle! But I do it anyways, because I care! :)
 I also have a few uses for the empty wine bottles.. - they get clean of their stickers and turned into vases, soap dispensers, water bottles, decoration etc.. 

For now, get inspired by these lovely ideas and maybe next time you are throwing the glass jar the pasta came in, you will think about interesting ways to use it! Alternatively, keep your eyes open for beautiful recycled glass vases! :)

use food color to get this look!

Harshita - Send me your ideas, maybe we can feature them here in the diy (do it yourself) post.
Pri- Yes, you should! Next time you carry the bottle proudly out of a restaurant! It IS yours and you will re-use it in a great way now! :)
