Hi, my sweet friends!
Surfing on Pinterest I came across these cute flower vases, so I decided my next project would be that. Copycat girl. I had on hand the supplies I needed, so my only work was to clean the bottles and remove the labels, tedious task! I am still in the search of the magic way to remove them easily, but at the moment I am using this trick shared by Jillee which you can check it here. Thanks Jillee!!
The process can’t be easier! You will need the following:
- DIY chalk paint (or any paint you use to paint on glass)
- Graphics (check them here)
- Modpodge / Glue
With the clean bottle I started painting it with the homemade chalk paint, two coats for a good cover letting it dry between coats. I printed with my laser jet printer the mirrored images, and cut them. Then I applied a thin layer of Modpode to the images and placed them onto the bottles. Here it comes the most difficult part, PATIENCE!! I recommend you to let it dry at least 6-8 h, that’s why I normally do that at night and let them dry overnight, so when I wake up they are ready to remove the paper.
To remove the paper you’ll need a bit of patience too… I use a sponge to make it wet, then rub with my fingers thoroughly until I can see the image below and let it dry for a while. When it’s dried you’ll see a white film appears over it, wet it again and continue rubbing until that film disappears and there’s a clear image. If you want to see a full tutorial with pictures of the process, have a look at it here.
Then I wrapped some twine around the neck of the bottle, varnish all the bottle and you’re done!! You can use it to add some character to any space.
I would love to see yours if you decide to do your own version.
