DIY Chalkboard Beer Bottle Vases
Looking for a fun craft to make for the upcoming Halloween season? Try this DIY Chalkboard Beer Bottle Vases! It’s an easy craft to do and doesn’t require much time, or more importantly, money! This while project post me about $6, and a few hours of my time (which most of it was drying time). The best part is that it is painted with chalkboard pain, so you can change them according to the season!So if you are ready to get your craft on, lets get started!
Here is how to make these DIY Chalkboard Beer Bottle Vases:
Here is what you will need:
- Beer bottles! (However many you will need to spell out the word you want to use!
- Chalkboard paint. (I found mine at Walmart for $4)
- Paint brushes or sponges.
- Flowers. (can be real or fake)
Step 1: First, you will want to wash out your bottles, and peel off the labels. Running them under hot water while peeling the labels off will help get rid of the glue much easier.
Step 2: After your bottles have dried, you can paint them! Paint 1 coat, let dry for 1 hour and then paint a second coat. Let it dry an additional hour.
Step 3: After your bottles have dried, you will want to take your chalk and rub it over the entire surface of the bottles, and then rub off with a wet paper towel. Dry them off.
Step 4: Next, write your letters! You can do different designs or just stick to letters. (I don’t have the best hand writing, so this is about as fancy as I can get haha!)
Step 5: Add some seasonal flours to your vases!
Step 6: Find a great place to set up your vases and set the seen with some spooky spider webs! (Or fake snow for Christmas!)
