Recycling beer bottles into pretty vases

4 Sep

bottles_2Here is the project anyone can do! I’m sure you have some beer drinking action going on from time to time, so why not to get creative with bottles? I used

  • Silver paint – by Martha Stewart from Home Depot (Metallic paint, about $6);
  • Michaels – pink paint – acrylic, $1; flowers – $1.19 for 3; brushes – $4.99 for set
  • empty bottles
  • basket from TJ Maxx for $4.50

I had two layers of paint on each bottle. These are from Corona and they have dark colored writing. I think if I used the primer, it would be covered better. Pink color needs 3 layers, let it dry in between each layer completely. For silver paint 2 layers are enough.

On the photo below you see the silver box – it’s a plastic box from some toy painted with the same silver paint, one layer only for now

Have fun!
