Rustic Spray-painted Bottle Vases

painted bottle flower vase

Once the DIY bug bites you, it gets hard to throw anything that can possibly be upcycled or prettyfied away. Since my wedding, I have been struggling to throw away any pretty glass bottles. So my garage is stacked with boxes of bottles (labels already removed) just gathering dust, waiting to be transformed. I needed to start somewhere, so I grabbed one and made this little vase then added some lavender from my first year lavender bush in my garden. Fresh flowers in the house just oozes summer!

What you’ll need:

Here’s how:

Step 1: Before you start, make sure the bottle is clean and completely dry. Place the bottle on some newspaper outside or in a ventilated area.

Step 2: Spray the bottle from a distance of about 30 cm to get a smooth coat. Wait for it to dry before adding another coat if necessary.

Step 3: Decorate the bottle vase with some twine, ribbon or string. I like the rustic look of the string to go with my bathroom.

Step 4: Fill with water and pick some fresh flowers to arrange.
