Intro: Snazzy Bottles
These bottles were made for Valentine's Day gifts. They were cheap, quick, and easy to make. This is a great way to add a touch of class to an ordinary gift. They can be made for men and women. I used all empty jars and bottles. I had an empty olive jar that said Don't Forgetta on it with raised lettering that I painted over. It was so cute. Let me show you how I made them!
Step 1: Supplies and Tools
Empty Glass Bottles or Jars with lids or corks.
Spray paint for glass.
Tube paint to write on lids and jars.
Candy to fill jars.
Pink heart buttons for embellishment.
Glue to glue the ribbon and buttons.
Fresh cut flowers.
Scissors to cut ribbon and flowers.
Save the red ribbon and the plastic K from the empty Kahlua bottle.
A surface to paint the jars outdoors.
Step 2: Remove the Labels
Remove all the labels from the jars.
I put the jars in boiling water to remove the labels but I heard Goof off works wonders.
You might even try a blow dryer.
For the empty Kahlua bottle; I removed the red ribbon, plastic K and saved them to glue back on later.
For the red bottle I removed the label but not from the neck.
Step 3: Paint the Jars
Paint the jars and lids as desired.
I painted three light coats for each jar, but allowed them to dry between the coats.
If you use a heavy coat of paint the paint will run.
Step 4: Paint the Letters
Paint all the letters on the jars and lids.
Paint the hearts.
Step 5: Embellish the Jars
Glue red ribbon to the Dark Purple bottle.
Glue the plastic kiss button to the purple bottle.
Glue the pink heart buttons to the red bottle.
Add a red ribbon.
Glue a ribbon to the orange Jar.
Step 6: Fill the Bottles and Jars As Desired
You can fill them with candy, flowers, coffee beans, or bath salts.
Step 7: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts
I thought these bottles were so cute. What a great addition to a small gift. A person with artistic talent could paint a scene on the bottles and the receiver could use them for a vase after the contents were empty. I loved the lavender bottle with don't forgetta on it.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope your Valentine's Day was fantastic!
