Upcycled Christmas Vase

This last December Challenge Theme is Winter! I love to upcycle things, give them a brand new life and turn them into something beautiful and useful. This time I get my idea from a vintage vase I found on Pinterest. I was inspired to make a a white winter vase which also goes well with Christmas theme. Now, the project is Upcycled Christmas Vase which recycling a Coke can. But before I move on, let me explain a bit about The Sustainable Pinterest Challenge.

The Pinterest Challenge has had a bit of a reboot for 2022 and is now the Sustainable Pinterest Challenge. Each month I join a group of creative bloggers and we select a pin or two that we feel inspired by and give it a go. Starting in January 2022 the Pinterest Challenge has a sustainable, eco friendly twist to it. All the projects shared will have something about them that involves recycling, upcycling, a general ethos of reducing waste and using what we have. It’s not about beating ourselves with a stick, it’s just about giving thought to how we can make small changes in our lives just a little more sustainable and reduce our impact on the environment.

Last month’s theme challenge was “Christmas” and I made an DIY Christmas Can Holder. For this month theme “Winter” as sustainable as a base to any of our challenge projects, I used a soda plastic bottle for a winter vase which looks fantastic as Christmas decoration.

Things To Prepare

Super easy and quick to make and easy-to-find supplies, so this Upcycled Christmas Vase from a soda plastic bottle is just great for upcycling project and also for Christmas decorations. Let’s see what are the complete short list of supplies that were used to make this Upcycled Christmas Vase :

  • Plastic bottle of soda (Large bottle)
  • used mug cover
  • Gold reindeer ornament
  • Gold ribbon
  • Gold marker
  • White paint
  • Glue gun

How To Make

This surely a super easy recycling Christmas project, I’m sure. Just follow these easy steps on how to make Upcycled Christmas Vase :

1 . Make sure your soda plastic bottle is cleaned. Cut two-third of top part of the bottle. Keep the rest for diy plastic pot or plastic holder

2 .Paint the plastic vase with white. Also paint the mug cover in white. Let it dry before continue to the next step.

4. Glue together the mouth of the plastic bottle to the mug cover with glue gun.

5. Draw dots by using gold maker on the bottom part and below part of the vase.

6. Take some gold ribbon and tie it to the vase, make a bow. And at last, insert the gold reindeer ornament. You’re done!

You can make this upcycled Christmas Vase for a center piece on Christmas dinner. Maybe I will make something to compliment the vase on my next post. We’ll see!

Now, let’s take a look at what the other Sustainable Pinterest Challenge participants have made for their “Winter” challenge.

  1. This is so adorable, Mel! I never would have thought it was made from a soda bottle! I love it! I do have a question about the mug cover which I’ve never heard of before. It looks like a stand from a plastic wine glass – something I’m using in my next project. I’m really curious about your mug cover!

    1. It’s a melamine mug lid/cover. I think it’s very old, it has a little chip actually on the bottom, but I think it serves well as a foot to the vase, so I just use it. You can even use a tea pot cover. Thank you, Gail!
