A woman has created a stunning vase for just £5 by using an old Lenor fabric softener bottle - saving herself £40 in the process.

Teresa Clarke, 45, from Essex, wanted to buy a fluted glass vase, but with these retailing at around £45 she couldn't justify forking out for the item.

Instead, she decided to make her own with something similarly shaped that she already had – a Lenor Outdoorable Fabric Softener bottle.

“I knew exactly which bottle I would use – I just love the pattern on them" Teresa, an NHS nurse, said. “I already had the empty bottle but they are usually about £2 in the local supermarkets.

“I picked up a £2 can of 101 Natural Hessian chalk spray paint from Poundland." She continued.

“The string I already had, but you can usually pick that up for £1.

“By making my own vase I saved myself £40."

She began the process by removing the label and lid from the empty bottle.

Next, she used spray paint to give it the desired colour, before wrapping string around the bottle top to hide the grooves.

Once dry, the bottle looks impressively like a vase, complete with a quirky pattern.

Teresa shared pictures of the finished look on Facebook.

She wrote: “I love the patterns on these Lenor Outdoorable fabric softener Bottles from @joyofclean so I thought, why not get out the spray paint, some string and make myself a nice decorative vase."

“I want to do it,” said someone else.

Another person agreed: “Fab idea I love this.”
