What do you think of when you think of green?
I think of Spring, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, grass, leaves, outside, recycle and many more.
So it was actually a tough decision coming up with a project.
I had too many ideas.
I decided painted bottles would be prefect to display from now through Easter.
I started with some miscellaneous glass bottles (recycled).
And cleaned and dried them thoroughly before painting.
I used 5 different colors of green.
Squirt a generous amount of paint into the bottle and swirl around.
Hold the bottle upside down to drain out the excess.
There was still a lot of paint in each bottle so I let them sit upside down over night.
Once they were completely drained I used a wet paper towel and cleaned around the rim.
I love all the shades of green and it makes me long for Spring even more now.
Aren’t they gorgeous?
Since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up I decided to add some “lucky” tags.
I made simple tags using craft paper and letter stickers.
And, of course, I had to add some flowers.
I love how simple and pretty this looks and feels.
