Finding pop in round bottles last week sat my heart to racing to realize that a little colored water in each hung from beaded twine would do wonders for my yard which is mostly "basic green."

I cleaned my old rose bowls with soap and water and then added gold or silver leaf. I glued hemp string along the top for more flare.

Approximate Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Wash the old rose bowl and dry very well.
  2. Use a low temp glue gun to draw designs on the outside of the glass.
  3. Use spray glue over the whole outside when hot glue sets up, to get some of the wider spots sticky. Then the sheets will fill it in.
  4. Once the glue is cool, lay sheets of gold or silver gold leaf sheets. Press with your finger where you'd like the gold or silver.
  5. Related Content(article continues below)

  6. Remove gently and you'll have the glue covered with color.
  7. Add the string to the top and you are ready to go.

What is a "rose bowl"? In California it refers to a football game that happens in Southern California near the beginning of the year after a big parade. Please clarify what you mean and tell us where to get "rose bowls."

I picked up a huge box of little vintage bottles at the flea market last summer for $5. They were pretty dusty but salvageable. I trimmed them up as shown and popped in tiny message scrolls and gave them as gifts.

You can make a bottle tree. Just put on branches in or near the garden. Blue ones look great for this.

Years ago my husband & I went to a diner, and on the table was an old bottle where they kept adding different colors of candles where they would melt down. It looked like a bit of Italy.

I have been digging up old vintage glass bottles from old trash dumps. These bottles are different shapes and sizes. The bottles vary in color, lime green, dark olive green, dark amber, blue, and clear. Some bottles have very thick glass and have a variety of openings. The bottles range in age from 20 years to 60 years old. I have dug them up and brought them home.

Some of them I have cleaned up and have on display in my house. The ones that I have in my house are small ink bottles or small perfume bottles. I would like to decorate the brown flask liquor bottles, brown glass Clorox bottles, cobalt blue bottles, the wine bottles, and a variety of other glass bottles and jars that I found unique enough to bring home. If I had some craft ideas, I think I could get busy making some money from my hobby.

My husband says you should do some research online and in library books because some of those bottles could be worth a serious lot of money. We have one old bottle (about 60 yo) that is worth over £1000-that's $1565 at current exchange rates. In the UK the apothecary bottles are the valuable ones, I expect it to be the same in the US.

I left an empty stainless steel pot on my ceramic glass top cook top and now I have a foggy type ring stain on the burner. Any suggestions on how to remove it? I tried vinegar, baking soda, stove top cleaner and nothing worked. Am I stuck with the stain?

Have you tried Bar Keepers Friend? It's helped me with some of the stains on my glass top other items haven't conquered. The other item that may help, but make sure it's safe for your particular glass top is the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. If you do find something that works, please share!

Just setting an empty pot on your stove would not leave a ring. Did you place the pot on a hot burner? That might cause a burn mark on the stove top that you probably couldn't get out. It will probably darken the more you use the stove.
