DIY Recycled Bottle Vases!

Reuse, Recycle, and Reclaim! Nothing beats taking a piece of trash and turning it into a treasure, which is exactly what we wanted to do. With outdoor entertaining at an all time high, we saw that glass bottles were being easily tossed aside and took the chance to create a simple, fun DIY perfect for Summer! With only glass bottles and a few colors of spray paint, these DIY recycled bottle vases make the perfect centerpiece for your next outdoor celebration!

We spray-painted our used glass bottles with a white base coat and let them dry overnight, then selected a metallic spray paint as our accent color to create some contrast. After they dry, turn the bottle upside down (and don't forget to protect the area you're working over with scrap paper), then spray the paint with light pressure at a 45 degree angle over the bottle. Move the  can upwards on the bottle while continuously spraying another layer to achieve a subtle ombre effect!

 We also spray painted a few bottles entirely with the metallic bronze color to create a mixture of finishes. Make sure to let the bottles dry at least overnight before adding water. The next step; add a mixture of your favorite flowers! We chose a palette of purple, pinks, and greens for a pop of color.
