DIY Tutorial: Painted Decorative Bottles

For all of my decorating and home needs, I generally hit up three places: Goodwill, and any paint supply store, and my own apartment. Thrifting and upcycling is a great way to get unique decor at a very cheap price. Plus, it's just fun to dig through stuff and see what you can find (thanks Dad for taking me antiquing as a kid!)

Since I already had the paint, this project legitimately cost me 
97 cents. 
Pennies! Beat that!
(with paint as an added cost, it will cost about $2.97)

Here's how you can have some cheap fancy fun too!

With my other two bottles,
I may work in some neon and gold leaf - we'll see!

Let me know if you complete this tutorial -
please link me to the results in the comments! I'd love to see!


  1. Great idea! Painting the insides white really made it all come together! Now I just wish I could paint like you :)

  2. Love it! I'm a fan of glassware from GoodWill, too. It's just too cheap to skip.

    I'm intrigued by the idea of a gold leaf bottle! I hope you do that one next. :-)

  3. That turned out awesome! I'm a huge bottle hoarder so I definitely have a couple lying around that need some sprucing.....thanks!

  4. What a cute idea! I am soooo not crafty, but I feel like even I could manage this one. Got my daughter's bat mitzvah coming up so I will bookmark this.

  5. Such a cute idea and I love your flowers. I'm not good at drawing tho but I'm pretty sure I can draw anything on the bottles :)

    I'm your ewest follower from Indonesia :)
