The Cupcakes and Cashmere Mint Bottle DIY project provides an artistic alternative to the disposal of beer bottles. Author Emily Schuman instead invites readers to repurpose and recycle the bottles by turing them into dainty DIY flower holders, perfect for display along one's windowsill or in one's backyard.

To make these colorful items, all one needs are the bottles themselves, bright pastel glass paint and a thick foam brush. After properly cleaning the glass in water and soap, the paint is then applied in wide strokes. Depending on the finish one is looking for, several coats may be applied until the desired finish is obtained.

Once dry, the mint pieces can be used to hold seasonal flowers. However, they can also make for simple decorative pieces sans stems.
