“After seeing a ton of painted Mason jar projects on Pinterest I’ve been saving up every glass bottle/jar that I come across,” says Vidya at What’s Ur Home Story. ”So it was no big surprise that these didn’t end up in my recycle bin.”
The bottles that were upcycled for this particular craft project were originally used for Starbuck’s Frappuccino. After washing and drying the glass bottles, Vidya chose several acrylic paints that were on the same side of the color wheel. She squirted the paints inside the bottles and then swirled the bottle around until the paint coated the insides. Vidya points out that the best way to protect the swirled paint from water is to do a coat of Mod Podge after the paint dries. The result is beautiful, colorful vases like this one.
