You know all of those glass beer and soda bottles you have in your recycling bin? Turn them into chic vases that you can use to decorate your apartment or house! Pick a color scheme that matches your decor and follow this tutorial to make these great colored glass vases! This DIY tutorial comes from the creative people at Brit + Co.
For this project, you will need:
-- Glass beer or soda bottles
-- Spray paint (in any color), make sure that it works on glass
-- Painter's tape
-- Puff paint (optional)
Spray paint the bottles
Use the spray paint to paint the bottles. You may need to do a few coats of paint if the bottles have a lot of writing on them. Let the bottles dry completely in between and after each coat of paint.
Create designs with the painter's tape
Use the painter's tape to create stripes or designs on the bottles. This is where you can let your creativity run wild! Then paint a layer of a different colored paint over the paint. You might need to do a couple of coats to make sure you cover all of the previous coat of paint.
Peel off the painter's tape
Once the paint coats have completely dried, peel off the painter's tape to reveal your creative designs.
Add some texture with puff paint
You can add some texture to your vases by adding puff paint before painting on your first coat of paint. Then repeat the same painting steps to finish your textured vases.
How cute are these?!
Fill the vases with fake or real flowers and decorate your apartment or home for a chic look. For more DIY projects for your home or apartment, check out the "DIY home" collection!
