Greetings Friends! Mother's Day is just three weeks away and besides honoring my mother, I enjoy celebrating the circle of special women in my life. Today I'm sharing two versions of a simple upcycled project perfect for gifting...
You may remember I have a surplus of these bottles after finding my favorite coffee drink marked down 75%.
For my first upcycled bottle project, I created these gold shamrock vases. You can see more details here.
As you can imagine, I still have quite a few bottles left and I'm determined to put them to good use. This time, I decided to upcycle the boxes too.
I knew chalk paint would be the best way to cover them. I'm a member of the DecoArt Blogger Outreach program, and they were kind enough to send me a few of their chalky finish paints for my project. I fell in love with the fresh pastel colors, Innocence and Refreshing, especially for spring.
I used foam brushes to paint the boxes, inside and out.
Here they are drying, after the second coat.
Do you ever have trouble keeping the stencil in place while you are working? I know I have and DecoArt has come up with the perfect solution--reusable stick on stencils!
These herb labels were exactly what I needed. Simply stick on the stencil, paint...
...and gently remove it when you are finished!
After filling the bottles with water, I added fresh herbs from my garden to one box...
...and pretty pink roses to the other. Voila!
