A "Re-Purposed" Christmas Tree - Miniature Listerine Bottle

I hope you like my re-purposed ornament series.  Today I re-purposed a miniature Listerine bottle.





I looped the wire on one end and wrapped the wire around the neck of the bottle under the rim.  I threaded the other end through the loop, formed a loop handle and twisted the wire around and under until it was secure.  I kind of went by instruction on how to wire a Mason jar but I wanted the loop in back not over the center.  Instructions to add a wire handle to a Mason jar are all over the internet.

 Next I filled the bottle half full of mica snow, and added a snippet from a faux berry sprig.

 Easy and inexpensive, and I think "cute".

  4. Adorable... I've never seen one of these wee old bottles. Love it. Wonder if Santa keeps one in his vest pocket to keep his breath fresh?

  5. You're on a roll! Really brightens up the tree with the white snow and berries. I was at Walmart and saw some snowball sized styrofoam balls and snatched them up as I want to make the snowballs you did last year. I hope the directions are on your blog here somewhere else I'll have to wing it and that could get ugly!
