I'm a sucker for a good Sobe drink. those guys really can make water interesting and the yumberry-pomegranate just reminds me of my childhood's grenadine. So even though I try to avoid buying sodas and other bottled drinks, I find myself enjoying one of those every once in a while. I also noticed the bottle is a bit more interesting than your average plastic bottle. This prompted a little experience. I saved a few bottles and sliced the top off. I dug up my stash of spray paint and this is what I came up with:
First I though about using them as a vase for branches and dried flowers but the first spray test turned into a rather interesting oops with some texture. Which made me think about the LED tealights I bought for Halloween.
I decided for those because they are way safer then real tea lights and we have quite a few young trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood.
For the second and third bottle, I applied some Mod Podge with a brush and sprayed the paint on before it dried. Once the paint was dry, I gently rubbed the Mod Podged areas to reveal transparency. I like how it turned out but I think I can get something more interesting. I'm going to experiement some more with those bottles... I'm thinking stencils...
