Materials Needed

  2. IKEA KRÖSAMOS Bottle Stopper
  3. A tray (one that complements the VILJESTARK vases and KRÖSAMOS bottle stopper)
  4. Olive oil
  5. Balsamic vinegar or your preferred vinegar


Step 1: Prep the VILJESTARK Vases

First things first, let’s make sure those beautiful IKEA VILJESTARK vases are squeaky clean. Gently wash them with warm soapy water, give them a good rinse, and dry them thoroughly. This way, you can be sure that no water is left behind to dilute your oil and vinegar.

Step 2: Fill ‘Em Up

Grab a funnel and carefully pour olive oil into one of the VILJESTARK vases, filling it about three-quarters of the way. Then, do the same with balsamic vinegar or your preferred vinegar in the second vase. This will leave enough room at the top to avoid any spills while pouring.

Step 3: Seal the Deal with KRÖSAMOS Bottle Stopper

Pop the IKEA KRÖSAMOS bottle stopper onto each of the VILJESTARK vases to create an airtight seal. This will keep any pesky contaminants out and ensure that the oil and vinegar stay fresh and flavorful.

Step 4: Tray Chic

Now, let’s find a tray that complements the sleek design of the VILJESTARK vases and KRÖSAMOS bottle stopper. Arrange the filled vases on the tray, making sure they’re stable and secure. This setup looks fabulous and makes it a breeze to transport the oil and vinegar to your table.
