Recycle Glass Bottles for a Beautiful Easter Floral Centerpiece

Recycle glass bottles to create a beautiful Easter floral centerpiece.  I used soda pop bottles and a vinegar jar as vases.  To add color to the vases I wrapped them in scrap fabric.  I finished each of the vases with a Mini Bowdabra Bow.
