UpCycling With Style...{Re-Do It Up}

Hello friends.. How are ya today..? It's almost FRIDAY & I'm
really excited about {Finger's Crossed} getting to sleep in a bit!!
LOL - Sad when the one thing I anticipate is SLEEP sometimes..
 I  U P C Y C L E D {With Style}

Have you been upcycling..? I have.. I've been trying to find ways to kill that 
annoying sensation of throwing things out or simply recycling when I can "Upcycle"
into better trinkets and goodies to jazz up the house.. Well, I've been up to just that 
lately and it's been really awesome creating fun and creative touches to add to our 
home. What do you think..? Those bottles above are actually a champagne and a 
vodka bottle I upcycled to add festive fall touches to my bedroom dresser!!❤ 
Wanna Create Your Own..? Here's how below.. So easy & stylish!

*Artsy Items Needed*
*Glue Gun
*Driftwood - YES! I LOVE Driftwood!!
{Go out back and grab LOTS of funky driftwood!}
*Some ❤ Krylon {White Krylon Spray Paint}
{flower if you prefer, these where left over from a party}
*How To*
To begin, I simply spray painted the bottles I had for use. Spray
paint white until you have a satisfactory texture. I used two coats.
After drying, I gathered up some driftwood from the back yard. I tried
to collect some funky dried ones with little branches and character. Once
you have the driftwood you need, simply glue on the wood in a creative
form to get the look you want. {Yes, it's really that simple!}. After gluing
on my driftwood, I wanted to add a hint of girlish feel, I grabbed an off white
flower and some dried babies breath to add some clean and classic look to
my bottles. Use a bit of glue to place the flowers where you will like them
to go along with the flow of your now upcycled driftwood bottles!
SO  D A R L I N G ..I {Heart} ❤ Them!!

I came up with this idea on a wimp trying to figure out what to do with ALL
the bottles we have piled up! The is SO much to do with the little bit of nature and
what you might consider "trash" around your home. Before you dump anything
out, take a second and think of creative ways to go green by Upcyling in style!!
Really hope you enjoyed my simple and fun tutorial here today! These beauties
are now on my dresser and look so stylish! I tend to think I could really see these
featured in a Pottery Barn magazine.. Yaaaye to me! RE-CREATE Always!!
