DIY: Bottle Flower Hangers {R=R}

Glad you stopped by to check out what I "refreshed" so I could "reuse!" Today I decided to use Bud Light Platinum beer bottles. Note: I did not drink these! A family friend, who drinks this beer, was nice enough to give them to me once they were empty. She used WD-40 to remove the labels. 

Finished Product

My first step was to find away to use the wire I had handy to create a makeshift hanger. Trial and error was the method I chose because I had no idea what would work. Finally I shoved a knot shaped mess of wire down the neck of the bottle, and it held. So that is what I did on the remaining bottles. I had to use probably a yard, give or take, on this part because the knot used a lot of the wire. Then I clipped some more wire, about 6 inches in length, and wrapped it around the neck. I thought it would add a nice touch, but it is totally optional. 
Next I set out on my four wheeler on a quest for wildflowers! This is what I came up with...

Then you arrange your flowers in your bottle vases. It helps to hold the hook, like it would hang from a tree, while inserting the flowers. If you don't, when you grab the hook, the flowers slide out. 
Now, find a tree!

I intend on using my bottle vases for a backdrop to take photos, but how you use yours is totally up to you!

I hope this project works well for you and you are pleased with your final product, as was I! Feel free to email me with any questions or comments at !
