Hello artsy friends stopping in today. It's a beautiful fall day here in Boston, MA and I'm enjoying every bit of it. I'm slowly ushering fall into our home with fun DIY decor and treats that I will be sharing.
~ My Vintage Candy Corn Bottles ~
This week, I added a few fall touches to our space & I LOVE it. I'm in love with everything vintage, I've never been a "modern decor kinda gal." I have a lot of vintage inspired items all around the house that I tend to pick up at yard sales and flea markets. My kitchen is a place we tend to spend a LOT of time in. Whenever we have guests, they walk right into the kitchen. It's rather odd, but I've learned to simply just keep it inviting, warm and to always have a nice treat for those who seem to bypass the living room and head straight for the jackpot. HA!
I'm happy to share this very easy DIY tutorial with you today. I whipped up these festive vintage candy corn bottles for my kitchen table. They turned out so beautiful. Hope you fall in love with them as much as we have around here.
Artsy Items Needed
Krylon: ~ White, Yellow & Orange!
Bottles of your choice -- I made use of empty vodka and Izze Bottles ...
Really, that's IT!!!
Let's Get Crafty
To begin, I cleaned off the bottles making sure all the labels came off (soaking the bottle overnight helped or use a metal sponge to get the labels off).
After my bottles were cleaned off, I went HAPPY SPRAY PAINTING!! I took my bottles and my paints went outside and started to coat my bottles ... 1st Coat White ... 2nd Coat Orange ... 3rd Coat Yellow!!!
For an old vintage feel, I allowed the paint to drip a little bit. It's not too clear in these photos unfortunately, but you can see the drip in the final outcome. I waited about 10 minutes between each coat to ensure the bottles were dry before adding more paint. So fun and easy! This literally took maybe 20 mins!! I chipped the tops a little to add a more vintage feel to the bottles. That's IT!!! I arranged them on a tray with a vase full of fall flowers and placed them in the kitchen for a very fun and fall inspired look!!
