    • foam brush
    • diffuser oil

    What you need to do:

    • Remove the sprayer from your bottle.
    • Pull the metal piece around the bottle’s neck using your pliers.
    • Using your foam brush, paint the bamboo skewers with the black acrylic paint.
    • Stick a bit of tape to your chosen decorative paper and adhere it to the bottle’s back portion.
    • You can add some of your paper to the bottle’s front section to conceal any logos.
    • Add your diffuser oil and arrange the sticks.

    These are only some of the excellent ways you can reuse empty bottles. There are still other methods you can use. You just have to be creative! Now, you no longer have to throw those beautiful bottles and feel sorry for it! Share this post and some of your ideas as well!
