My name is Hazel and i am glass bottle hoarder!! It’s so good to admit it! Anytime i see glass bottles, especially those with fancy shapes or odd sized, my mind goes into a frenzy of the different ways i can use it to decorate a space!
That is what happened when i saw this 5lt bottle of whiskey…
After some soaking, cleaning and scrubbing it was good to use. My tools for the day were plastic rope and gold spray paint.
Tying the bottle with rope was the most tricky part! It was slippery and not getting as tight as i wanted it to be. It was quite a struggle. The trick with this project is that you want the rope on tight to keep the spray off.
It is important for spraying to be done outside where there is good air circulation otherwise you could start choking or getting dizzy if you do it indoors. Be warned!
After spraying leave it outside to dry for about an hour.
Well my end product wasnt exactly what i envisioned…i wanted the clear lines sharper. Because i used plastic rope which wasn’t quite tight, the lines were rather blurry. If i was to redo this, and i shall, i would use tape instead. Lesson learnt!
Final step place some dried flowers in it and pop it in any place you like!
What are your thoughts? Have you tried this before? Outcome?
Keep it DIY!!
