I saw this idea on Pinterest and as it looked pretty straight forward I thought I’d give it a go myself!
As I have a whole stash of milk bottles left over from my recent wedding, it was the perfect opportunity to try a little DIY. I’m absolutely obsessed with copper at the moment, and luckily had a bronze/copper coloured spray paint already!
All you need for this is a vase/bottle, something to cover the tops of the vase with – I used disposable sandwich bags, but you could use a plastic carrier bag or even a paper bag – some low adhesive tape and a spray paint in the colour of your choice!
So here we are, starting with some regular milk bottles.
First, I used the tape to mark out how far down I wanted the colour to be, and made sure I pressed this down really firmly to get a lovely neat line.
Then I covered the tops of the bottles with the sandwich bags and taped this down too. We were now ready to spray paint and looking like this…
I wore a glove in the hand I was holding the bottle in to stop me getting covered in paint, and gave the bottles a light coating – leaving them to dry upside down.
After one more coat they were done! Here’s the finished result.
Super easy and really effective. I think they would add a gorgeous pop of colour to any room.
