Step 1: Finding the shape

To get the best results you should find a easy but cool shape that you want your vase to have, of course this can change during the build.....

I made a drawing of the bottle first, to know how big the vase had to be. 

Step 2: Cutting, cutting, cutting......

now you need to cut out the shape, I did not change the shape during the cutting, but I rounded the edges later !

Remember to cut out two pieces that don't have a hole for the bottle, these will be the sides.

Step 3: Gluing

Use the brush and the glue. After gluing everything, lay the dumbbells on top, as shown. 

Step 4: Final touch and you're done !

Round the edges a bit, to get the cardboard inside more visible...
