turquoise raindrop vase {diy}

I am a bottle hoarder. There. I said it. I keep old spaghetti sauce & pickle jars, soda & wine bottles... any and all glass containers are placed in my super secret, special hiding spot (under the kitchen sink). 
I like having bottles on hand for wildflower vases, storing the random homemade apple butter, and impromptu art projects like this one. This d.i.y. would make such a cute gift. And it couldn't be easier. The turquoise beads add a playful, boho vibe. And those are some of the best vibes. It's worth being a bottle hoarder to spread some good vibes, don't you think?

*a strong adhesive glue that is made for glass (I used goop)
*a glass bottle or vase
*turquoise teardrop beads (Etsy is a great place to find. Try here, here, or here)

1.Make sure your bottle is clean and dry.
2.Place a small dot of glue on the back of the turquoise and press the stone onto the bottle. You have to move fairly quickly to keep the glue from drying.
3.Immediately wipe off any excess glue that may have oozed around the stone.
4.Repeat until all your stones are adhered.
5.Tip the bottle over and let the stones dry facing up.
