Hey guys! I did this project for See Vanessa Craft a couple of weeks ago, but now I'm sharing the full tutorial here in case you missed it! I decided to make a polka dotted bottle vase because I love polka dots and can't get enough of them lately. It was inspired by this Milk Jug. I saw it on Pinterest, wanted it, and then thought "I could just make that, and not pay for it." Win-win. So I was able to do it at no cost to me since I just used things I already had at home. I will estimate what I paid for the materials though so that you all can see how wonderfully cheap it would be even if you don't have everything.
Glass Bottle .50 cents or $1 at thrift stores, or upcycle one you have left over from a drink (or in my case, brownie mix.)
White spray paint $3.75 at WalMart
Acrylic Paint (three colors at Hobby Lobby) $2.50
Pencil with unused eraser .25 cents
Very small paint brush or make-up brush you don't use, for touch ups: .25 cents
A paper plate or regular plate covered in foil to pour your paint on and newspaper in case of accidents.
Total Project Cost: $7.50 at most!
Step 1: Clean your bottle and spray paint it white. Haven't spray painted before? Just practice patience and do it in layers so the paint doesn't drip. One coat, let it dry and repeat until you have your desired shade.
Step 3: Touch up any spots that seem a little too see-through with your small brush.
