Here we have a fantastic idea for upcyling! Behold this Bohemian Bazaar upcycled bottle by Rebecca Morris. This is such a great idea for giving new life to an old object. The bright colors and hypnotic designs of Bohemian Bazaar add so much cheer to this sweet home decor creation. Metal embellishments and pretty ribbons also add to the marvelous vintage charm of this lovely craft. It's so dreamy!
