Glass Bottle Categorically Crafting Show

Over the past year, I have been amazed by all the recycled glass bottles crafts. What people do with old wine bottles, jars of jam, salsa jars, etc. blows my mind.
Just a little bit of spray paint can work wonders.
Below are a few of the glass bottles crafts I've seen!
Spell out words using glass bottles. These spray painted bottles look great for decoration. See this idea at City Cradle.
I love all things polka dots!!! Over at Dazzled By Life there are these too cute polka dot vases! I love the color of the dots! They are so much fun, and soooo easy!!!
Make sure you check those glas bottles out HERE!!!

This is a new technique for coloring glass that I have never seen before. I really like it! Less messy and maybe easier and quicker than spray paint.

See this tip for coloring glass from the inside HERE at Domestically Speaking.

Look what a little bit of hot glue can do to a glass bottle/vase. It fancies it up!!!
Learn how to do this hot glue on glass technique HERE.

This glass bottle has netting around it create a PB knock-off!
See it at the Frugal Designer. Go HERE.

This is the first post I remember seeing spray painted glass bottles and fell in love. It was a year ago yesterday that I featured these beauties from A Soft Place To Land.
