Spray Painted Glass Jars and Bottles
I have a real problem throwing away perfectly good glass jars and bottles. To me they are little craft gems waiting for me to transform them. With Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation coming up, I decided to turn some of our recycled bottles into cute gifts for Mom and my sons’ teachers. Before you begin this project, I want to warn you to be flexible. Materials: Glass Bottles or JarsSpray PaintRubber GlovesPlastic BagsMasking or Painter’s TapeDrop Cloth, Tarp or PlasticFoam StickersX-acto KnifePencilEmbellishments: beads, transfer rub-ons, wire, fabric, ribbon, raffia, lace, or whatever you have lying aroundHot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks Instructions: Clean out the bottles/jars and let them dry completely. Select some foam stickers to use as a mask on your bottle. I chose a heart and then cut an “M” into a circle foam sticker using an X-acto knife. If the bottle neck is narrow, use the X-acto knife to feed the sticker into the jar. Set the bottles in a tarped area or box.
