If you follow me on social media you will know about my recent trip to Cologne for the essence #bloggersbeautysecrets party. Whilst staying in Cologne there was a really fun food and drinks festival over the canal from the hotel. Fanta were handing out free bottles of their Fanta Klassik which have such cute retro designs. When it came to it I just couldn’t throw these vintage bottles away! I knew I would have to come up with a fun upcycle.
Upcycle DIY Home Decor Fanta Klassik
This upcycle is very easy and really doesn’t need any instructions. I thought I would still share and some photographs as it is a quick and effective DIY home decor project.
I wasn’t 100% on what I was actually going to do with the bottles when I got them home. Whilst going around Stephen Smiths garden centre with my Grannie for her birthday I spotted these very bright orange candles. The candles were only £1.09, they looked so cool and striking so I knew that they would make an impact.
I used a knife to shave the bottom of the candles so they would fit in the neck of the bottle. The candles were still a little wobbly so I took my lighter and melted the wax around the base to give a firmer hold.
The candles look really cool with the rest of my dresser space. It works well with my geometric pieces and cacti! I love the romance of candles in bottles and love the look of this so much. The rereleased 70’s design looks awesome and bold when teamed with the bright, elegant candles. I cannot wait for the wax to begin dripping down the bottles as I continue to burn them.
