i love getting inspired by the things that i see on the internet. i am always looking at other peoples blogs in search for inspiration for my next project. this project, as it turns out, was super simple.
all you need is:
> a plain glass bottle
> a hot glue gun
step 1: clean the bottle with rubbing alcohol, and don’t get any oils on it thereafter.
step 2: draw the word you want on the bottle with hot glue. luckily hot glue is very forgiving and if you make a mistake, let it dry and simply peel it off until you get it just right.
step 3: paint the bottle. some people choose to use spray paint for this. i think spray paint has a nicer, smoother, more even finish, but i was unable to use spray paint. i also prefer a satin finish over a gloss finish, but your choice. i used martha stewart paint for this project, in satin finish. sure you can see the brushstrokes, but i think that the texture just adds to the charm.
then just let it dry, and you have a gorgeous custom vase!
