DIY Turn Recycled Bottles into Cute Cottage Style Vases

I had these bottles from some healthy juice, I can't remember the brand, but it was in the refrigerated section of the produce aisle.  I really loved the shape of the bottles and thought they would make really cute vases.  My front porch needed a pop of color and they seemed to fit my needs.


You will need:

-  Three glass bottles
-  Blue spray paint

Here is the video tutorial:




Directions:

1.  Spray bottles.
2.  Let dry.

Yup.  That's it!!  Do thin coats and it may take 3 to 4 coats, but it will give you a nice finish.  Also, use a satin, or gloss paint.  The nice thing about these is you can put water in and actually use them as vases!!

Here is a quick tip.  If you watch the video, you will see, but I kept the caps and hot glued them on the bottom of the bottles.  That way, they are raised up and you won't get a big gob of paint along the bottom rim.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
