There are moments when we fancy really challenging ourselves and taking on a big project, or tackling a tricky technique we’ve never tried before. But there are other times when we just want a
quick, crafty fix – a simple make that will instantly update our homes and only take a few minutes of our time. And that’s exactly the category that this project falls into – all you need are a few bottles in different shapes and sizes, some lovely thick paints and some pretty blooms for a fresh and colourful display. What are you waiting for?
- Transparent bottles and jars
- Plastic tubes or shot glasses
- Coloured emulsion paints
Remove the labels and clean the insides of the glassware. Leave to dry.
Choose a colour and pour a good amount of paint into the bottom of one of the vessels.
Slowly rotate the bottle to get the paint to coat the entire interior. Depending on the paint, this may require two coats and a paintbrush will help to cover all the edges.
Let it dry thoroughly then place a shot glass or plastic tube inside to hold the water for the flower. Fill with your favourite blooms and you’re done!
