Take old jars and bottles and create fun, colourful homemade vases – just using paint!
Soak clean bottles and jars overnight to remove labels easily. Let dry.
Pour a small amount of paint into each bottle/jar. Swirl, gradually rotating until inside is coated. They may require a second coat. Lay newspaper on floor in a well-ventilated room and cover with plastic dropsheet. Leave jars to dry, upside down on dropsheet. Peel jars off dropsheet.
Arrange bottles for a bright, stiking vignette. Fill with flowers or paint a chalkboard wall and create an arty illusion with chalk (as shown above).
