UPCYCLING GLASS BOTTLES INTO COLORFUL SPRING VASES

An easy way to recycle bottles -

just some spray paint is enough to transform them into colorful decor to bring Spring indoors!

Materials:
 
Glass bottles - rubber bands - painters tape - aluminum foil - scissors

STEP 1: Slide the rubber bands onto the bottle to create a striped pattern
STEP 2: Apply painters tape above the top rubber band
STEP 3: Cover the top of the bottle with aluminum foil and tape down the bottom edge, making sure that the tape doesn't go below the tape that was applied in the previous step

 
STEP 4: Spray paint the bottle in serveral light coats until opaque, waiting about a minute in between each coat
STEP 5: Wait about an hour or until the paint is fully dried before cutting off the rubber bands. Very carfully pull the rubber band away from the bottle and use scissors to snip it.
STEP 6: Remove the rest of the tape and foil and fill your new vases with flowers.
