Stacey Solomon transforms old Chanel perfume bottles into stylish shower gel holder and diffuser

IF YOU have just finished your favourite perfume and are about to throw the bottle away, you might want to think again. 

You might have spent £50 or more on a bottle of perfume, so it seems a bit of a waste to just throw it away.

And Stacey Solomon knows all too well about transforming old items instead of putting them in the bin.

Her latest upcycle are some old Chanel perfume bottles, but instead of throwing them away, she has put her DIY skills to the test once again, transforming them into a stylish shower gel holder and a reed diffuser. 

The Loose Women presenter posted her upcycle on her Instagram stories yesterday, as she demonstrated how to give perfume bottles a new use.

She said: “Currently sitting in the shower with my book because I've saved my old perfume bottles to make a shower gel holder and read diffuser.”
