Simple Juli

So your throwing a party and you need some decor but you don't feel like spending a lot of money for a one day event. I am the queen at making nothing (aka trash) into something. Check these puppies out:

Yes simple glass drink bottles can be transformed into cute vintage-y vases for happy little gerber daisy's and perky pinwheels can frolic.

Here's how you do it:

 Get your tools together:
     Empty clean clear glass bottles with all labels taken off
     Spray paint of choice
     Spray gun
My choice: IBC Root beer bottles and Ace satin spray paint in Ivory {left over from this project}

There have been a few questions as to this spray gun, my new love. Its a simple $4 attachment that controls the spray in a smooth line versus an uncontrolled flurry of paint. You know you want it.

 Spray away!

Wallah! Now after the party you don't feel guilty for just throwing these in the recycling although they are so cute you may just keep them! Have fun!

You and I are on the same decorating page: Free is Good. Most of my party decor lately stems from other people's old newspapers and trader joe's bags.
