Happy Valentine’s Day!
I haven’t done a lot of decorating for Valentine’s Day this year… just been super busy with bigger projects (master bedroom) and a bunch of family stuff.
I LOVE this project I did for the DIY Club though.
Empty, clean bottles
Decoart Chalkboard Paint
Small Paint Brush
White acrylic paint
I used what I had on hand for my bottles. I love the look of the grenadine bottles I buy, so I always keep those. ( A trick to remove any label remains… soak in vinegar. With a little rubbing the rest will come off.)
After drying your bottles, use a foam brush to apply the chalkboard paint.
I didn’t use any primer, so it took 3 coats of chalkboard paint to cover them completely.
After the paint had dried well, I drew a whimsical frame on the bottle with a pencil.
With white, acrylic paint and my smallest brush I filled in my frames.
I used 2 coats of white for the frames.
A great way to recycle those pretty bottles!
