Inspired by... yellow

It was actually Madigan and her beautiful painted Milk Glass Jars, that inspired me to do something with these old medicine bottles I had laying around.


The over abundance of sunshine has inspired a sudden regard for the color yellow and I knew I wanted to do something bright and happy with these little guys.

The first step was painting them.  Since I wanted the same "milkglass" effect that Madigan had achieved, I painted them on the inside.



The blue paint was a different brand and for some reason it did not adhere well to the glass.  So I added a coat of the yellow.  The result was passable and I liked having the blue between the two solid yellow bottles, so I went with it.

Time to add some bling!


I used modge podge to glue the ribbons around the bottles, strung the buttons on some hemp and looped them around the bottle necks.  These were all items I had in my scrapbooking supplies.

Since the paint is on the inside, I knew I couldn't use these for real flowers, so the next step was adding some daisy-like (the craft store was out of daisy's) floral picks.


I wanted the option of either hanging them, or standing them up so I glued them to a paint stick and made a hanger out of the hemp cording.

I can't decide which I like better...


OR


What do you think?

  1. HI June-

    These came out great. All nice and shiny and so cheerfully accessorized. I recently saw where someone painted the outside on a collection of bottles. It didn't look nearly as good as when you put the paint inside and swirl it around. They are the perfect summer vase.
    My best- Diane
