Introduction: DIY Artistic Vase

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

Things you'll need:-

  1. Empty glass jar or bottle,
  2. Acrylic paint
  3. Permanent marker.

Step 2: Cleaning and Painting

Picture of Cleaning and Painting

First clean the empty glass jar or bottle.

You can use glass paint, spray paint to color the jars and bottles. But I've used acrylic paint.

Pour some amount of black paint in the jar. Rotate the jar carefully to cover the inside with the poured paint.

Try to cover the inside of the jar with black paint as evenly as possible.

Step 3: Designing

You can use permanent markers to design the painted jar and bottle. I've used black marker to design. You can draw anything you want and it's much easier with the permanent markers.

You don't have to worry about the main paint coat to dry as it is inside and you can freely design anything you want.

Whatever the design is make sure it's neat.

These decorated glass jars and bottles can be used as vase or home decor. They look very artistic! I hope you enjoy making it :)
