I'm sure that most of us have a number of empty glass jars and bottles at home. It's so hard to throw them away. We can recycle these jars and bottles for many purposes. I've tried to recycle them into home decor. This instructable will show how to turn these empty glass bottles and jars into artistic vase! It's very easy and cheap.
Step 1: Materials needed
1) Empty glass jars, bottles,
2) Glass paint, spray paint or any kind of paint,
3) Paint brush,
4) Permanent markers (of different colors).
Step 2: Cleaning and painting
You can use glass paint, spray paint to color the jars and bottles. But I've used wall paint because I had much left over wall paint at home. Paint carefully and neatly, cover the whole jar or bottle with paint, make sure you paint evenly.
After painting allow them to try.
Step 3: Main Design
After the paint dries, use permanent markers to design on the painted jars and bottles. I've used black marker for the main design. I think it's better to outline a design on a paper or in your mind before starting on the jars/bottles. You can draw anything you want and it's much easier with the permanent markers.
Step 4: Detailed Design
After drawing the main design with the black marker use a different colored marker to fill the design with more details. I used red, green and blue markers to fill in the design.
Whatever the design is make sure it's neat and clean, it'll turn out really pretty. These recycled glass jars and bottles can be used as vase or home decor. They look very artistic! I hope you enjoy making it :)
