Painted Glass Bottles and Jars - Wedding Centerpiece Ideas

I have a ton of glass laying around…time to DIY!!  I picked some of my favorite colors, yellow and gray, in latex paint.

Truth be told the paint was pretty thick…maybe I bought the wrong latex?  Once I watered it down it was easier to coat the glass.

Love the look of the finished product.  Let it dry though!!  It takes longer than you think.

DIY Recycled Glass Centerpiece Idea

When I ran across this beer in the store I knew I had to make something out of these amazing bottles…I wanted a more modern look a la Crate and Barrel.

I wound up at a home improvement store looking for glass paint and clear coat.  I chose both the white and clear coat in a matte finish.

After some trial and error I found the best way to spray paint them was to put my finger inside (or my sidekicks finger) and spray away.  Wear gloves!!

The finished product was awesome!  Love the matte finish.

Such a great way to recycle beautiful bottles.  A fun way to add interest to your centerpiece or home decor.  Remember you can paint any glass…jam jars, soda bottles, mason jars etc.  Have fun!  Play around and be creative.

I love burlap…I think just the slightest amount can add charm, interest and texture to any wedding.

Browsing around Etsy I found the following gems:

Such a charming centerpiece.  You can find it here.

Gray burlap…my new favorite.

In love with this burlap headband…perfect for a bride or flower girl.

Ombre Meets GlassyBaby

Daydreaming about glassybabys in shades (of possibly yellow or green or even peach) ranging from light to dark.  Unfamiliar with Ombre or Glassybaby?  Read below!

Ombre = a French word which means shaded or graduation from light to dark.  See an example of escort cards that have been dyed Ombre style here.

glassybaby = only some of the most beautifully colored multi layered glass I have ever seen.  Oh and they rent my friends!!
