How to Arrange Shot Bottles in a Glass Vase
- 1). Fill the vase half full with clear glass gems. According to Home Made Simple, "There are so many shapes and styles of vases to choose from: cylinders, squares, curvy or classic. Whether you have a collection of vases from floral deliveries or have found a few deals at your local home goods store ..." these vases are useful to your décor.

Arrange a layer of shot bottles, bottoms down, on top of the clear, glass gems around the inner side of the glass vase. The necks of the bottles should point upward and outward. Fill any center "hole" created by the circle of bottles with more glass gems. Shot bottles, or miniature liquors, are available for purchase from wedding supply and liquor stores. Some companies offer personalized liquor labels for weddings and parties for an additional fee.
- 3). Arrange another layer of shot bottles on top of the previous layer of shot bottles, alternating the bottles so the new bottles are positioned on top and between the previous layers. Fill in any "hole" in the center of the ring of bottles with more glass gems. Continue arranging layers of bottles in this stacking pattern around the inside diameter of the vase until the bottlenecks protrude from the top of the vase opening.
