Plastic Bottle Flower Vases

Plastic Bottle Flower Vases

The beautifully patterned DIY paper vase covers hide regular plastic water bottles. The advantage: They can be cut to any desired height.

Time: approx. 10 minutes per paper vase sleeve

This Is How We Do It:


For these paper vase sleeves, we need:

Plastic bottles in different sizes, sturdy patterned papers, ruler, cutter, carpet knife, pencil, tesa® Glue Roller Permanent ecoLogo®.



Step 1


Cut off the top of the bottles at the desired height using the cutter.

For thicker material, use a carpet knife.

Step 2


Measure the circumference of the bottle and divide it by the number of the elements the vase should consist of. Mark this measurement in the relevant number + 2 cm each in width and in the desired height on the back of each paper. Number the elements with a pencil so that they can be glued together in the desired pattern on the front side.

Step 3


Cut out the elements and glue them together in the desired sequence. To do so, roll on the glue along the vertical edge of the first paper.

Step 4


Apply the second element. Continue with the other elements, and then close the sleeve.

Step 5


Insert the bottle into the sleeve.
