I have always loved bottles and the various shapes they come in some are so interesting I buy the the bottle and not the contents, They end up collecting dust and I throw them away, until I found this little easy way to decorate with them. I kicked myself the whole day just for not thinking of it earlier. ( I got this from Goodhouse Keeping Magazines)
Findi some bottles with great shape and detail, remove the labels, clean the inside and let them dry out completely, it can be plastic or glass as long as its see through.
Once dried you pour a good size of paint into the bottom of the bottle, be generous you can always pour the excess out. Be adventurous as well choose bright colours if you want mix and match options here are endless.
The options used here is glass staining paint used in the last post ” Improve the look of your vases”
When the paint is in the bottle, you will have to slowly rotate the bottle to get the paint to coat the entire interior of the bottle. Depending on the opacity of the paint, this might require two coats. (Acrylic paint will work for this as it will adhere to the glass, but note that you shouldn’t fill the bottle with water later.)
Once the paint is dry you can place the botlles anywhere to decorate your spaces and at times like i use them to put odds and bits in the living area.
- Let it dry thoroughly and you are all set.
