I really want to share a few pictures of our Colorado vacation....but man, oh, man. I have HUNDREDS of pictures to go through and I doubt you want to see them all. Some pictures are on my smaller camera, and unfortunately I can't find the cord to connect it to my computer. Sooooo, someday soon!
For now, I thought I would share a few simple fall projects this week.
I have a ton of little bottles I have collected over the years. But you could do this with coke bottles, old vases, wine bottles or even old perfume bottles. A little Kilz, white, yellow and orange spray paint and you have a super cute way to display fall flowers or foliage.
Word of caution...do not try to paint glass without first Kilzing it. I did...doesn't work.
So the first thing you want to do is clean and dry the bottles and then give the bottle a coat of Kilz!
After the Kilz dries, paint the entire bottle white. After that dries, paint the lower 2/3rd with orange and after that dries, paint the lower 1/3rd yellow.
You may notice I "free-handed" the spray paint layers...no tape. I like the look better than a harsh line. I stuck a few silk fall leaves and flowers in the bottles...sweet little display! I had a little brighter yellow I used on another bottle...but this is the only yellow I had on hand. Personally, I think you can use any color combination you like as long as you get that "candy corn" affect.
I even did this on an old fake pumpkin...turned out really cute (no, of course I don't have any pictures!) and it made an old pumpkin new again!
I have a few other little, inexpensive decorating tips I will share over the next week or so...at least until I can wade through all my vacation pictures!
No major projects. I did pick up a few interesting things at an auction last weekend, and I will share those as well!
