Have you looked at the shape of the glass bottles
you may be throwing away or recycling?
You might consider up-cycling them with Looking Glass Paint.
The bottles pictured above formerly housed
basalmic vinegar (left) and Louisiana Hot Sauce (right.)
Once you remove the labels and wash clean, their shapes are rather interesting.
I have used Looking Glass Paint on a flat surface,
but have not tried on any other type of glass.
While it is not a quick process, it is definitely easy.
Spray a quick burst of paint inside the bottle opening.
You have to let each coat dry before spraying another coat.
I found that the paint did not stick immediately to the lower part of the bottles,
and I had to roll the excess paint around on the inside.
Eventually it just about all stuck...
and I drained the excess out the top and applied another coat.
This is after two coats.
This is the shine after four coats...and I considered it done.
But I wanted to dress them up a little more...
I added a silver seasonal spray to the tall bottle
and adhered one around the center of the shorter bottle.
(Doesn't my Mr. Lincoln rose look amazing in it?)
I also added a tag out of music paper
and brown twine for a vintage touch.
All set for the holiday table.
Makes a pretty centerpiece.
What can you make sparkle this holiday?
