I am thrilled to be sharing one more project from our recycled-bottles-that-I-just-cannot-let-go-of today. After we finished with our Thanksgiving Centerpiece and our Advent Wreath I was supposed to throw these bottles out, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. So we packed and moved a holiday decoration that was purposed for the garbage to a new state and can I tell you, I am giddy that we did.

Because I added a small square of chalk-board paint, wrote out the word LOVE.

Bought a few pink tulips,

and made this…

LOVE vases

Which, I think might be my favorite project yet, and so incredibly easy to make.

In case you missed the Advent Wreath tutorial here are the simple steps to create these vases:

  • Collect a few wine bottles
  • Spray paint them white, doing multiple light coats to prevent dripping
  • Using a felt brush paint on two coats of chalkboard paint in an imperfect square, centered on the front
  • Write in the word LOVE
  • Add water and then a few simple, pretty flowers

They make me smile. I am excited to share with you tomorrow a few other lovely items going into the store to continue our Black & White LOVE for this Valentines Day.
