Recycled Bottle w Milk Paint into Pretty Vase

Painting

Recycling is easy. Once you have switched your mindset, everything becomes recyclable.

I noted the lovely shape of this empty glass juice/wine bottle and with some simple, water-based gouache white paint (IKEA kid paint) I created this milky look within 5 minutes.  The result was a real vase, rather than an empty glass bottle used as a vase.

Other, more durable paint will work also, but you’ll have to dilute it to create this semi-transparent  milky effect.

Love it?



Lateron, we put a candlestick in it, and wrapped some flowers around the next of the vase. Our recycle bottle vase was instantly transformed in a cheery candle holder.

Because this is water-based paint and not glass paint, it will eventually come off from handling. Use this to your advantage, as this adds to the aged and unique patina of the vase.

(Tip: not dishwasher safe. Dust it with a dry cloth and rinse only the inside).
