Glass Coke Vases

So this past holiday season at Walmart they had a 4 pack of Coke in vintage glass bottles. Of course my daughter HAD to have them and even they we don't keep soda in our house I caved partially because when you don't ever have soda it just tastes so much better and then also because the glass bottles were so cute.

So when Taylor and I had finished two of them I cleaned out the bottles and put them on my kitchen windowsill so I could try to figure out what to do with them because I couldn't bring myself to throw them away.

So after thinking for a bit I thought it would be cute to paint them and stick some fake flowers in them. It will add some color to whatever room I put them in. Well I finally have had a chance to sit down and try out my creation.

Here is what I used. Pretty easy right! 
The paint is Martha Stewart Multi Surface Glitter Acrylic Paint. I belive it was like 6 maybe 7 bucks at Michael's. The foam paintbrush was like $1.50ish.

So you have to dab the paint on because if you brush it then it streaks unevenly. I had to do about 3 coats of paint but you can always do more or less if you want.

So here is my final product. I bought the flowers at Walmart and they were on sale for .75 and 1.50 each!

Happy Crafting!!
