It’s time for our Monthly Craft Room De-Stash Challenge Hop. Each month, a group of bloggers meet the challenge from C’Mon Get Crafty to use items from our own stash to create a craft or project.
I love finding uses for items that would usually go to the recycle center. These Glass Bottles for Spring Coastal Decor started out as cold coffee bottles.
We can spend ten dollars for necessary supplies to create it, but most need to be things we already have. Be sure to check out all of the links at the bottom of the post for some great ideas!
Meet this month’s hosts!
Coastal Table Decor
I’ve had these empty coffee bottles saved since last fall. During hurricane season, knowing that the power is likely to go out and knowing that I need my coffee, I stock up on coffee that comes in glass bottles. I can keep them in a cooler during power outages.
These particular bottles are super easy to use for a craft because the label on them is a wrap that isn’t glued on. I just used scissors to snip the edges and then pulled them off.
After thoroughly cleaning the bottles with dish washing liquid, I left them to dry and then put them away, thinking I would make something with them soon. When I recently gave a makeover to my craft room craft closet, I found them knew they would be great for this month’s craft room de-stash project.
I bought these lovely soft white small tulip blooms at Michaels recently. They were on sale for half off. That’s always a bonus! Since I had the bottles and the paint, that was the only thing I needed to buy.
Have you ever used sea glass spray paint? I love it! I used it several years ago for a jar for a coastal candle holder. If you do a lot of spray painting, using a comfort grip is a great way to save yourself from finger fatigue!
Krylon is makes a great sea glass spray paint. It only takes one light coat to get a beautiful coastal look.
*Tip: Make sure to spray lightly at least six inches away from the item.
They look great even without anything added to them, but since I’m using them for a centerpiece, they needed some flowers. . I love the combination of the white tulips and sea glass.
This is a centerpiece that I can leave on our breakfast nook table to go with our other coastal decor.
