DIY Decorative Bottles

Well, this week has been full of fun crafts. I'm going to share some of them with you because I'm super excited about them! All of the crafts I've been making are going to be for my room in my new apartment so that makes it fun too. Anywayyy, here's how I made these pretty decorative bottles!

I had 3 Izze bottles, and 1 pickle jar :)

Trust me, Goo Gone is your friend. Make sure you have all of the label goo off before you paint!

I used a matte spray paid, just because I like the look.
You can also use a glossy paint.

Ta-Da!
Check back later to see what else I did to that pickle jar!

Well, there you have it! My pretty new bottles and jar :) Super easy, cheap, and T loved it because he got to drink the soda before I used the bottles!

What do you think? :)

Very cool post! As a teacher this gives me some ideas for future Mother's Day gifts.

I really like your blog. I am thinking of starting one. Today I posted my very first blog at www.lemonsandlaundry.blogspot.com
My older sis was kind enough to let me be a guest blogger. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Have a great weekend!
