  • colored glass recycled bottles or vases
  • Jacquard ExtravOrganza
  • spray adhesive (Test on tissue paper or sheer fabric to make sure it doesn't bleed through.)
  • digital photos
  • scrap cardboard or paper - to protect your work surface


  1. You will want to size your photos so they willll fit your recycled bottles or vases. Keep in mind you can use 2 or more photos on the larger bottles front & back or that a vertical view may be better suited to your bottle. Print several photos per sheet of ExtravOrganza or other type of paper to minimize waste. It is best to test your photo size and layout on regular paper first.
  2. After printing your photos on the ExtravOrganza or paper from your printer, resist the urge to peel the paper backing until you've cut the photos to size. The fabric is much easier to cut with the backing still in place. Leaving an edge for fraying is optional. Remove the backing and fray any edges you like. Hold the silk photos against the vases to determine the best color combination & which background color makes your photo more vivid or most pleasing.
  3. In a well ventilated area, lay out your silk photos, one or two at a time, face down on your scrap cardboard or paper. If you want any fringe to be loose on the vase, mask off the fringed area with scrap paper before spraying the adhesive. Spray a light, even coat of adhesive over the photos. Carefully place your photos onto the vases and continue until your bottle/vase supply is exhausted.
  4. Think of the possibilities! Themed party favors, gifts for friends and neighbors, and display your scenic vacation photos, all easily completed in no time at all!

I've found that one of the things I don't like about recycling regular bottles into vases is the top. In order to hide this eyesore (where people can see and know that it has been recycled) I wrap raffia around the top and either bind the ends by tying them in a knot or bow. Glue that is not water soluble is good too. Yarn or string, even ribbons can be used. Just seal against water damage if using for a live floral design.

This is cool! I have also done this with etching the glass with an etching kit!

I am trying to put this information in my craft box, but don't know how to do that?????? I love this idea and would like to save it...anyone out there that can help me??
