In this post you’ll find a very thrifty painted bottle spring centerpiece! Who doesn’t like thrifty?
Hello sweet friends! Today is Valentine’s Day and I just want to take a moment to tell you how much I love and appreciate our readers! Without you, there would be no reason to blog.
Today the Thrifty Style Team and I are bringing you lots of ideas to celebrate early spring. I’m sharing a painted bottle spring centerpiece that was so easy to create!
Did you recognize the bottles? They are small beer bottles. Now first, I need to tell you that I am not much of a beer drinker but when I get really thristy, there is nothing like a beer to quench my thirst. Usually I drink only 1 beer and sometimes don’t even finish it.
So one time Leo went to the grocery store for me and came back with these Coronitas. He explained that the word “Coronita” means small Corona. Seven ounces is the perfect size for me, and when I finished up a six pack, I thought I’d do something with the little bottles other than recycle them.
I have a few tips for you if you decide to paint some bottles.
- Wash and dry your bottles.
- Choose your spray paint color in a matte or flat finish.
- Prep your area with newspapers, cardboard, or plastic in a well-ventilated area.
- Spray a very light coat on one side of the bottles. Don’t spray too closely. Allow to dry thoroughly.
- Repeat the process on the other side and let dry.
- Apply several more light layers, if needed.
