St. Patrick’s Day is drawing near and we’re sure you must be ecstatic for all the festivities that are to take place. While Valentine’s Day may be the celebration of love, St. Patrick’s Day is where the real fun is at! St. Patrick’s Day is not just a holiday for the Irish as much of America goes into full swing when it comes to commemorating the lucky day as well. Nothing quite spells out fun like dressing up in green, hitting up your favorite pub with friends and enjoying that steady flow of liquor and beer all night long. What’s not so fun is figuring out what the do with the impending mess the morning after. Beer bottles lay strewn about end up in the garbage. However, instead of dumping them, why not make use of them. There are so many ways to reuse them even when the holiday is over. For this week’s DIY tutorial, we’re showing you how to re-purpose your leftover beer bottles from St. Patrick’s Day by creating lovely DIY bottle vases. Perfect for the spring, these DIY bottle vases make gorgeous centerpieces that can really add that pop of color to your living space. If you’re looking for a fun and inexpensive way to brighten up your tables, then keep on reading. And stick around till the end to see our lingerie favorites from our new St. Patrick’s Day Collection.
What you will need:
Before getting started, we soaked the beer bottles in warm water for five to ten minutes and then peeled off the labels. If you encounter any residue when peeling off your label after soaking them, simply take a wet towel and buff it away.
1. Use puffy paint to write or draw your designs onto the bottle. To get into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, we went with the simple phrase “Get Lucky”.
2. Spray an even layer of paint onto your bottles and set it aside to dry.
3. This is how the bottle should look once the paint has dried. The puffy paint underneath the spray paint makes it look like it was etched into the bottle.
4. If you wish to create different striped colors on your bottle, adhere masking tape onto your bottle. This will be the color of the stripes. Then, spray paint a different color onto the same bottle and wait for it to dry.
5. Once the paint has dried, peel off the masking tape. This should reveal a neat stripe underneath the second layer of paint.
Add flowers to them and you’re all done! Aren’t these just lovely for the warming weather? There are many different ways to decorate leftover bottles and this method is not just limited to beer bottles. If you have any leftover wine bottles lying around, this spring project is a great way to get rid of them without having to toss them away. You can even paint them in whatever color scheme you’d like to match the colors of your home decor.
