Old perfume bottles may seem useless. See 10 ingenious ways to reuse them instead

When it comes to emptying an old bottle of perfume, a lot of us might be conflicted on what to do with the old bottle. For the most part, perfume bottles are as well-crafted and beautiful as the fragrances that they hold.
Because of their beauty, it would be a shame to toss them out. Luckily, there are plenty of ideas out there on how you can reuse these bottles as both utilitarian and decorative objects in your home. Look no further for the inspiration to get yourself started.

5. Floral display
Brighten up yours, your moms, or your friend's vanity by gifting them an adorable perfume bottle floral arrangement. While real flowers are always nice to have around the house, there is something great about bouquets that never wilt.

Instead of using air fresheners throughout your house, try to freshen up the place by using oil burners. While in store burners can be costly, you can make your own beautiful burners by recycling your old perfume bottles.
