If you have been around here a while you’ve probably noticed two things: I like reusing things instead of buying new ones, and I love reusing bottles with interesting shapes in decoration.
This also make a great excuse for buying and drinking fancy liquors. Just for the bottle, of course.
The two bottles in the back were painted inside with enamel paint, the purple one is one I got with some homemade drink about 20 years ago and have kept since.
These are paper flowers on my daughter’s bedside table, but I the little blue jar was formerly a mayo jar. I read about this on
Gingerbread Snowflakes (via Mod Podge Rocks).
She mixed Mod Podge Outdoor (Amazon affiliate link) with food coloring to paint glass. Where I added to her technique was on the way to apply it. I stippled two very fine coats of the mixture (with drying time in between) using a small foam brush. This gave the glass a frosted look and it resulted in a nearly-uniform color.
A trick to removing the labels on some bottles is to leave soaking overnight. If some residue is left, then use paint thinner or lighter fluid to remove it.
