Here's another fun way to dress up some empty bottles...
What you'll need :
-Empty bottle (beer, wine... whatever you've got)
-Spray paint, I used three colors but two would work
-border paper punch
1) In a well ventilated area spray the bottle your base color. Let dry, it was a sunny day so this didn't take long. Depending on weather conditions it could take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour. Just make sure it's dry before moving on to the next step.
(I moved it into the sun to speed up the drying process)
I liked the sage but wanted a little more bling so I added a layer of a shimmery spray paint.
I didn't want to totally cover the green, so I just misted it with a gold satin based spray paint.
2) While your bottle is drying grab some scrap paper and use a border punch on the top and bottom edges. Be sure the paper is long enough to go around the bottle.
3) Cut the paper to size, tape onto the bottle. Be sure not to cover any of the hole punches with the tape.
Juuust barely made it...
4) Now with your last color spray the entire bottle.
Be careful when spraying near the paper, I sprayed a little at a time so it didn't run. I'd rather go back and spray a little more if I had to as opposed to putting on too much and ruining the design.
5) Once the bottle is dry carefully remove the paper.
Pretty cool, huh? You can use this as a vase, decoration for a mantle, etc.
This would be great in orange and black (Halloween) or red and green (Christmas)... the possibilities are endless! Have fun with it.
