Updated: Apr 4, 2021

Hey guys, it's Megan!

I recently posted a video showing you a few projects you can try when you're bored this summer. If you missed it, you can check it out here!

One of the projects in the video was this vase made from an old Snapple Bottle:

For this project you'll need:

I showed how to press flowers with an iron in one of my older “things to do when you’re bored” videos. In case you missed it, you put the flowers between 2 pieces of parchment or computer paper, and iron them on the lowest setting for 5-10 minutes.

How to press flowers with an iron: place the flowers between two sheets of paper, and iron for 5-10 minutes on the lowest setting.

When the flowers are ready, rinse out your container.

Rinsing out a glass container to recycle in a craft project.

If there’s a label, peel that off.

If you have trouble getting the sticky part off of the jar, try using a little nail polish remover to help.

You can use nail polish remover to get any residue left from the label off of a glass jar.

Once the jar is clean, use some gloss Mod Podge to glue on the flowers. If you don’t have Mod Podge, just use some Elmer’s glue. Be super gentle with this, because you don’t want to rip them.

Stick the dried flowers on to the glass jar using gloss Mod Podge.

Let the glue dry, and you're done!

Finished pressed flower vase - an easy recycled craft to try when you're bored!

I think I’m going to use this as a vase to put fake flowers in in my room. I know the yellow doesn’t really match, but I’ve been thinking of incorporating a little yellow to brighten it up in there.

You can use this technique on any type of container. I might make another one with a mason jar/larger jar to hold makeup brushes!
