I like to arrange flowers in unusual containers, i.e. wooden boxes or ice coolers. To keep water from leaking or damaging the container, I use plastic bottles. I use a bread knife to cut off the top at the height needed. I also use these plastic liners in real vases to protect the finish against discoloration. It is a great way to recycle plastic bottles, which I seldom buy, but when I do I try to devise at least three uses before disposing of them. Because I live where the tap water is excellent, I fill bottles from tap and put in freezer or fridge for cool water.
