Decorations

Believe it or not, you can turn your empty perfume bottles into picture frames. Unlike the previous items on the list, you need to be creative this time. However, don't worry; you can still create a sound output without overcomplicating things.

If you don't want to use your precious photos, you can print other images for decorations. First, you will need to design a bottle: glitter it, attach small ornaments and let your creativity flow. Also, you need to measure and reserve a space to put your photo in the center of the bottle.

After designing, you can then attach the photo to the space you provided. You can add details such as stickers or glitters on top of it. As a bonus, you can pour colored water inside the bottle to create a more appealing effect.


2.Candleholder

The last item on the list is for classic design lovers. If you're more into functional decorations, you can reuse empty perfume bottles as candleholders.

When you use a candle, the wax will drip down over time, causing dirt or gunk on your table surface. It is for this reason that everyone should use candleholders, which also makes carrying them more manageable. However, if you don't want to purchase one, you can use your perfume bottles instead.

There is no need to clean your bottles in this step. All you have to do is remove the lid and anything that blocks the bottle's mouth. Also, consider your candles' size and choose the bottles with a similar or appropriate mouth opening.

If you want to move your candles, you need to devise a handle for the bottle. Since it will get warm to the touch, you will need something to hold to protect your hand. Got any wire or thick cloth?

You can bend or trim them to fit a smaller portion of your bottle.
