Hi there!! Well, here are my two new inventions for my apartment. I used a can of beans, paper and colors for the pencil holder and a used bottle to transform it into a unique decorative item! I guess I can use it to put some nice and colorful flowers but for the moment it is standing there. I hope you like it!!

I have always been attracted to bright colors and have been known to stand in front of all the pretty colors of embroidery thread/paint/yarn/beads/stained glass with wide eyes, a child-like smile and in my mind, I am pulling all the colors to me and rubbing them on my face with lots of giggling joy.

But anyway, I got this feeling from looking at your AWESOME painted bottle.  Cheesy  Would you be so kind as to tell me what kind of paints you used?

Thanks a lot!! I'm glad you liked it!

I used regular acrylics but I had to give the bottle a white base before painting the colors otherwise they would not be as strong as they are now. I hoe you can do your own colorful bottle! The best of it is that you can actually do lots of them!

I like your design - it's very fun.  I've painted wine bottles for use as vases, too.  Another idea is to feed a string of Christmas lights down into the bottle with the plug coming out the top.  When you plug in the lights the bottle you painted in the photo will look like stained glass.  It's a very pretty effect.
