DIY decor

Today’s DIY post is simple, yet oh so striking (and cheap, which I love!)

These bottles are jazzed up using a hot glue gun, and some spray paint.  Just find some old bottles from the recycling, scrub them clean and get the glue gun hot.  Make sure to not mess the hot glue on the jar (something I would do!), because it could look quite messy.

I love how striking, yet simple the one word ‘Love’ is on this bottle.  Once a word is written on the bottle and is dry, use spray paint to quickly paint the jar.  I love how this one uses a paint with a pearl finish-very elegant.  By using spray paint, it will go much quicker than applying paint with a brush and will not cause any lumpy bits to form around the word.

You could use these jars just as decor around your home (in groups of different sizes/colours), or as vases or even as table decor.  The opportunities are limitless.

Thanks to Buzzfeed for this great idea.
