DIY Painted Bottles & Jars
Everyone loves a good craft project once in a while. I figured I'd selected one that has the two things I love, floral design and painting. I saved bottles and jars for a couple weeks and even bought a few baby food jars to add smaller pieces to the collection. After removing labels, washing, drying and cleaning them I selected an array of acrylic paint colors I wanted to use. Note, It's not wise to use a paint that will react to water especially if you are using them for fresh flowers. I probably should have used a more permanent paint since I wanted to put flowers in mine. I then squeezed a good amount in each jar and moved it around so that it covered the entire area. I poured the excess paint back in their bottles. I let stand for 48 hours. Here are the results.
