Milk and whisky bottle vases with dried flowers from the garden

A lot of what I make is furniture, but not all cool upcycled stuff needs to be so large or practical.  Things can be made for their beauty. I often look at glass as a wonder product— made from sand and easily recycled.  But can it also be upcycled? Two things I consume and often result are milk and whisky. One starts the day, the other ends it.  You can guess the order.

My garden provides stunning reeds and grasses when dried. I have always been saddened to bin them every winter and began to dry for indoor use.  They can now be found sticking out of anything and everything around the house.  But these stunning shaped whisky and milk bottles are some of my favourites.  Finished off with left over ribbon from Christmas or birthdays.
