Here’s an easy and inexpensive DIY that will put a smile on your face each time you look at it. It also is a great gift for your BFF. What we love most about this project is that it upcycles something that you’d normally just recycle – glass bottles!
With just a few coats of paint, you can transform a glass bottle into an adorable flower vase. We think it looks best when you paint a number of bottles happy colors and line them all up side by side.
- Glass bottles (these are sparkling water bottles)
- Paintbrush or foam brush
- White craft paint
- Colorful craft paint
- OL892CK – Clear Gloss Inkjet – 3″ x 1.5″ Oval Labels
- Free downloadable Labels
Step 1: Print out your free downloadable labels using your home printer.
Step 2: Peel the original labels off of the bottles. The easiest way to do this is soak them in a bucket of water for about 10 minutes. The labels will peel right off.
Step 3: Paint a base coat of white paint onto the bottle. Let dry. Repeat this process one or more times. (TIP: Be sure to use a dry paint brush or foam brush per each color. It will help the paint smear on the bottle smoother and more evenly.)
Step 4: Paint over the base coat with your favorite color. Let dry. Repeat this process if necessary.
Step 5: Once dry, stick a label onto the vase.
Step 6: Fill your vase with water and flowers.
Viola, the project is complete!
