  1. Peel off any existing labels from the nail polish bottle. If it does not remove easily, try soaking it in warm water or check out this video for additional tips.
  2. Pour any remaining nail polish from the bottle into a plastic cup and toss out.
  3. Place the bottle on newspaper sheets to protect your workspace and spray paint until it is completely covered. A few light coats should do the trick. Follow the manufacturer’s directions when painting and always work in a well-ventilated area. Let dry.
  4. Run the button through your yarn until it reaches the center of the yarn. Wrap the yarn around the top of the bottle. Tie a knot at the back of the bottle or behind the button and cut off any excess yarn.
  5. Before adding water or a flower bud to the vase, make sure the nail polish inside the bottle is completely dry. You may need to let it dry overnight. Dab a qtip or toothpick inside to check before proceeding.
