I hate throwing away medication bottles. Every time that I do, I think about how I should find a use for them.
I finally removed the labels from a few and decided I could use Dixie Belle's Patina Collection to make them pretty enough to use as bud vases.
I first gave the bottles a coat of Dixie Belle Paint, which works like a primer for the patina paint. The paint color didn't matter because it was going to be covered by the patina paint.
Then I gave the bottles a coat of Copper Patina Paint and let it dry.
Once dry, I gave the bottles a second coat of the copper paint. While the paint was still wet, I sprayed the bottles with the Green Patina Spray.
The metal particles in the patina paint will begin to react with the patina spray immediately.
I used E6000 glue to adhere jute around the rim of the bottles.
They're the perfect size for small flowers.
And, they look much better here than in the landfill!
