DIY Sparkle Vases

It’s August already! It seems as if the Summer has just flown by. With school approaching right around the corner, I wanted to do some cleaning and decorating in my apartment. One of my favorite DIY crafts are turning old wine bottles in to vases.

This time around, I wanted to go with a more sleek and shiny look . I already had some black acrylic paint and glitter laying around. The only supplies that I had to purchase were the flowers!

If you’re looking for an easy DIY project to spice up your place, try this out!

What you need:

  • Empty wine/liquor bottles

  • Acrylic paint

  • Flowers of your choosing

  • Glitter

Step 1: Prep your painting space! I chose to do this outside on my balcony. I am a messy painter, so I need the space to paint and dry.

Step 2: Using a sponge or large paint brush, cover the entire bottle in one layer of acrylic paint.

Step 3: Immediately after you finish painting your bottle, sprinkle your glitter in a waving motion all over the bottle.

Step 4: Let dry! I left my bottles out to try in the hot sun so they only took about 20min to dry. To be sure, I would leave them to get dry for about 30min.

Step 5: Once your bottles are completely dry, add your flowers and decorate around your place!
