Craft: Painted Glass Bottles

Here is how I made a vase by recycling an empty bottle:

I sponged painted a vodka bottle with white acrylic paint and let dry completely. Then found a fake tattoo I liked and rubbed it on bottle. I put polyurethane on it to seal it. To finish it off, I put flowers in it for an instant vase.


I also use stickers, paints, anything that can and will stick to the bottle. Right now i am working on putting beads on one.

I love this idea...especially good for when there aren't many fresh flowers around

I use bottles, too. I handpaint mine. If you'll spray at least three coats of clear spray paint on them, they hold up very well. It also helps to etch the glass to make the paint adhere better.

Love the fact that you are recycling your bottles. There are some really pretty shaped bottles out there. It's a shame to just throw them away. I have friends that save bottles for me and give me boxes at a time. Sometimes I get way too many, but then I can go through and throw out the ones that aren't as pretty.
