Point of View: Green


Welcome to this month’s Point of View Reveal and Link Party. The theme is “green”.
You may notice we have Michelle and Camilla missing this month.
They needed to leave the Point of View, but I hope we will still be able to see their awesome projects linked up here from time to time.
We’ll have some exciting news about the Point of View coming soon.

You can check out all the Point of View Projects by visiting each of the blogs listed here.

Gwen at Gwenny Penny
Amy at Ameroonie Designs

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.

Now we’d love to see your Point of View on the Green theme.
You can link up your awesome projects over at Just Between Friends.
We will each be featuring our favorite project next week.
Thanks for joining the party.
I can’t wait to see your Point of View.

    I love these bottles Leanne! They are perfect for spring and St. Patrick’s day! I may have to go on a hunt for glass bottles. 🙂

    These are so pretty, Leanne. I love that each one is a different shade of green. Perfect to display for the next several months. Love it!

    I just saw your Halloween mantle banner posted on a school pin board for Halloween ideas.

  • These are so fresh and pretty! Gorgeous simplicity. Chartreuse green is an accent colour in my Living Room so this would be a great way to add that colour pop to my mantel. Thanks for sharing your great idea!

    Love those green bottles Leanne! Fun that they can be used just for spring, or for St. Patty’s by adding the tags. So clever!

  • Lisa @ grey luster girl February 25, 2012, 8:23 pm

    So simple and beautiful! Love it!

  • Ann February 26, 2012, 11:36 pm

    LOVE these! The cool shades of green on the inside of the bottles make them look like high end/expensive glassware. Adding the letters and the daisies is all sorts of creative fun. Good job.

    Did the paint eventually run down on the inside? I did the exact same thing the other day and about a week later the paint started running down….weird huh?

    Have been itching to give this a go. I just have, fairly happy given my first attempt, and yes pale shades of green. Thanks for the inspiration.
