Coffee Swirl

So I have a confession… I love coffee! Actually, Lora and I both love coffee and when we get together it’s pretty much guaranteed that a Starbucks run will be made.

I decided to save some Starbucks bottles and paint them. To achieve this look, simply clean out the bottle, pour in paint in a color of your choice (start with a small amount first), and swirl it around until the paint completely coats the inside of the bottle.  The key to making these bottles is making sure you don’t put too much paint in and that you let the bottle dry completely. You can use any kind of glass bottle or jar to do this project. I chose to make an ivory bottle which I added a number “7” decal to and then I also made colored bottles in Craftivity colors – Coral & Mint! Below are my finished products:

Thanks! I actually have not tried to put water in them so that is a good question! You could spray paint the jars instead of painting the inside so that way the paint and water do not mix. Let me know how it goes if you try it :)

I love this project! I may just make myself some soon. Does it hold water well (for cut flowers)?

Thanks Stacey! It's nice when you can save money and make things yourself.
