Hey there! Today I am sharing these DIY Glass Bottles – 3 ways. I am using recycled glass bottles for this craft project and showing you three different techniques that are very easy. These decorative bottles are great for home decor or could be given as gifts. So, sit back and grab a cup of coffee or a bottle of frappuccino and let’s get started!
So, if you’re addicted to coffee like me, you are going to love this craft project. I just love these bottles of Starbucks frappuccino. Caramel is my favorite! I got to thinking one day, instead of throwing out the bottles why not make a craft? That’s where the idea came from.
- Glass bottles
- Chalkboard paint
- Chalky paint
- Mod Podge
- Foam brushes
Before starting, make sure to clean the inside and outside of the bottles really well with warm soapy water. Also, you will need to remove the sticker residue. I used Goof Off but you can use whatever material you typically use.
This was my first time using chalky paint and I must say I really like it. It’s really easy to use and is a forgiving paint. I applied several layers of the white chalky paint with a foam brush. The paint dries pretty quickly, which makes this process go faster since you need to wait for the paint to dry before applying another coat. Once I was happy with the layers of paint, I took a piece of coarse sandpaper and went across the paint at random places to give it a distressed look.
Bottle #2 – Wrapped Twine
I really like the look of natural jute twine. I use it in a lot of my craft projects. For this bottle I applied Mod Podge to the glass using a foam brush. Then, I simply wrapped the twine around the bottle making sure not to leave any gaps in between the pieces. I did have to keep applying the adhesive because it tends to dry quickly.
Bottle #3 – Chalkboard Paint
Chalkboard paint is really trendy and has been for awhile. Just like the chalky paint bottle, I applied several layers of the chalkboard paint to the bottle using a foam brush, making sure to let dry completely between applications.
All three of these bottles are neutral in color and can be embellished in lots of different ways. They can be used in home decor, craft rooms and more.
To tie the look of all three bottles together, I added some round chalk stickers and a tag. You can find them here. I plan on using these bottles in my craft room for holding supplies.
