Evian Flower Vase

20 May

HearthandmadeblogAwhile back, around Christmastime, I found these fantastic Christian Lacroix Evian bottles at Big Lots for $1 each. I did some research and found that each year Evian invites a different designer to create a bottle for them, and they release them around the holidays for a special edition Evian water bottle. The Evian bottles I was able to get ahold of are the 2008 Collector’s Edition, but there are some other great editions out there – so keep your eyes peeled!

Heart Hand Made CraftsI bought a bunch of them and had the intentions of auctioning them on eBay, but an unexpected move and a dozen projects later, I still have a few bottles around the house. Inspired by the gorgeous (and cheap) flowers I’ve been seeing every week at the Farmer’s Market, I found the perfect upcycled use for the bottle – an Evian Flower Vase! What a simple and different way to display flowers in the house.

    Thanks! I wish I would have held onto more of them to give out to my readers 🙂

    I actually was at the swap meet over the weekend and saw some of the older Evian bottles (by Jean Paul Gaultier), so they can definitely be found. I’d love to see pics if you can find any other unique bottles out there 🙂

    I just found out Issey Miyake is doing Evian’s designer bottles this season.

    …and what you do you know – they even have a flower design on them! Maybe he saw my blog, haha 😉
