Pinterest Challenge- Letter Bottles

As I mentioned in my last challenge post, I do not do enough crafty things. In fact, I do nothing crafty. Art has never been my forte. My mom bought me the Old Navy shirt that says "less is more" (as seen in Friday's outfit here) just so I would keep that in mind if I ever ventured into the creative world. And I guess I did. I found the idea on Pinterest, and the title of the article on Buzzfeed is 31 Insanely Easy and Clever DIY Projects, so I figured that it was worth a shot. Aaaaand I messed up the first one. TIP: Do the letters slowly. You can see every mark when you paint it over.


1. You can use any jar or bottle or container you want.
2. Using a hot glue gun, *CAREFULLY* write a word on the bottle.
3. Let the glue fully dry before proceeding to the next step.


1. I used a sponge brush and white acrylic paint for my jars.
2. Completely paint the jar, including in between the letters.
3. Let the jar dry overnight before adding a second coat. When doing a second coat, I did not paint in between the letters, I simply brushed over them.


The final products were amazing. I am currently using the two taller jars to store beauty products.












 

 You can use any words you would like for the jars. On the jars pictured two above, I put some inspirational words on so I have a daily reminder. On the jars pictured directly above,  I put two values that mean something to me.
 
I am proud of myself for completing this project. In total, it took an hour to do all four jars. And they look amazing on display in my room. If you're looking for some easy decorations, I strongly suggest this project.
 
Have you ever tried something like this from Pinterest?
