• Bottles: anything will do! Save your condiment jars, wine bottles or hit up your local thrift store for anything with a unique shape. Use bottles, vases, glasses, tin cans,etc.
• Spray paint in 2 or more colors. (This example uses black, silver, bronze, and gray.)
• Twine, string, or yarn
• Hot glue
• Glue & brush
• Cork, ball, bead, or knob for toppers
• Labels (See Link)
1 PREP THE BOTTLES
Soak bottles in hot water for 20 minutes. Use a straight edge knife to scrape off sticky labels.
Hot glue twine on some bottle necks. For a different look squirt hotglue on the top of the bottle neck and let it ooze down.
Choose top for bottle and hot glue it on.
2 ADD COLOR
Spray paint a base coat on. Depending on your glass color and desired look, paint a solid or light layer onto the bottle.
3 ADD ACCENT COLOR
With short spritz, spray each bottle with a 2nd color.
Another option is to spray at the top of the neck and let paint run down.
Try spritzing more than one color on.
Play around with short bursts and longer bursts to get different effects. Spray the bottle topper or twine another color if you’d like it to stand out.
4 PLACE LABELS
Glue labels on with craft glue. For a clean look stop here. For a grungier look, spritz some color over the labels.
TIP : Make sure to use spray paint in well-ventilated area an protect your surface by using a tarp or cardboard box.
