Make Nail Polish Bottle Vases

The last days of summer are waning and fall is on the way. Enjoy those last few blossoms of the season with a cute set of recycled bud vases! Natalie at Creme de la Craft reused a pile of empty and dried-up nail polishes to create these tiny flower vessels. Make one to decorate your desk at work or make a bigger statement by placing a whole row across a shelf or down the center of a table runner.  You could even turn them into place cards at a wedding or other gathering!  Either way, you'll never want to throw away an old nail polish bottle again!  [how to make nail polish bottle bud vases]

Project estimate:

  • Empty nail polish bottles, on hand
  • Spray paint, on hand or $1 and up
  • Buttons, on hand or $1

    Ha! That is so cute and so creative! I usually just toss them because I never use an entire bottle before it gets thick and needs to be tossed, but I’ll def keep this in mind next time I am ready to pitch a bottle!

    I used them after decorating them on the outside with 3D glitter paint, as vases for my Barbie doll displays. Looked awesome@
