    hi friends
    i had done decorative dhal bottle abt 6 or 7 years ago..to my surprise it has no change till date,remains fresh as such...it is very easy but i used a plastic bottle instead of glass just to avoid damage...so it doesnt giv more beauty...

    like this i badly want to know abt the decorative veg bottle..though i had seen this earlier in many shops i cudnt buy as its expensive...i thought this is very interesting nd i collected the procedure from internet ...hi friends have you ever done this beautiful fancy jar?...if,please guide us nd share your knowledge:)...

    HOW TO DO DECORATIVE VEGETABLE BOTTLES
    It quite possible could be vinegar but more likely oil. Decorative Vegetable Bottles are sold here at department stores and gourmet shops and some are quite expensive. They are filled with fruits, vegetables, and herbs in either vinegar or oil and then sealed with an airtight wax seal. And while they look appealing, they are for display only. Here is a picture of jars that used oil as a filler.And if you are interested in making your own, here are the ingredients you will need:

    Bottle with cork
    Vegetables or fruit
    Knife
    Funnel
    Measuring cup with spout
    Vinegar or oil
    Raffia for decoration around neck of bottle

    And Directions:
    Clean a new or used bottle to fill with fruits or vegetables. If the bottle doesn't come with a cork, purchase one from a craft shop.

    Chop up vegetables or fruit, and arrange in the bottle as desired.

    To fill a bottle with a stack of fruit slices, fold each slice and drop it in the bottle. Poke each piece in place with a knife to make it lie flat.

    When the vegetables are in place, fill the bottle with vinegar or oil and plug it with a cork.

    Add a decorative touch with a raffia bow tied around the neck of the bottle.
