Alcohol bottles and creative recycling

Why throw away something nice when you can recycle it?

My mother says that my home decor is weird. Indeed, I have action figures, toys and puppets, but it's not just for that. I don't have vases, but pretty glass bottles that I recycle as jars for plants grown with hydroculture.

They once contained alcohol, now small plants.

I think it's nice to recycle some beautifully shaped bottles and give them a second life. A second life for the bottles and the branches of Pothos (Epipremnum Aureum), which I cut from the main plants to root, and then replant.

The first plant of Pothos was from my grandmother. From that, many were born, some we even gave away. Today I have three huge plants and many bottles scattered around the house with twigs that are taking roots. For me, it is a way to recycle, beautify the home and above all, to keep alive the memory of my grandmother who loved these plants.

This is a new plant, a little Ivi. Let's hope it takes roots!

And you? Do you recycle bottles, jars and food containers?

P.S. The spirits previously contained in the bottles were drunk in moderation LOL

  • Excellent idea. I've seen some cognac bottles that would make incredible vases.

  • That sounds like a fantastic idea, and they look lovely to me. I went somewhere once and they had turned their kraken bottles into a candle holder
