It has been long since I messed my hands in some DIY chore. I am itching to strike at least one project off my ‘never-ending-master-list’ of projects! My constant struggle is to micro manage my time, in other words I am juggling too many things at the same time but I am learning to respect (and utilize) every precious second in the process. I felt the need to break away from the frenetic routine…7 to 5, week after week, I was missing something…my hobbies my getaway… something that helps keep me sane and recharged:-) Today I managed time… finally recycling glass bottles, a long pending project on my list!
I made this for a friend, who wanted something to adorn a table in her patio. I dug out a couple of empty glass bottles from my recycling stash (you know me, I am hoarder!). I started with tinting the olive oil bottles with glass colors, used two colors for a double tone effect.
Once dry, I did a freehand dot pattern on the bottles using an ear bud! Just put dots with gold acrylic.
Don’t they look pretty? You can use them as they are or as a flower vase or store salad oil, vinegar etc. The glass colors are water-resistant hence the bottles are washable.
While photographing these bottles I have fallen in love with them! I hope I can give them away 😉
My daughter loves to help me in all DIYs…she is so thrilled with the do-ability of this project that she has started to make a set for herself, keeping her room’s color theme in mind…will post the pictures as soon as she completes it.
Have you any recycled glass bottles projects to share? I’d love a peek! Click here to see how to recycle plastic bottles into hanging planters or how about turning soda/beer cans into pretty luminaries!
