St. Patrick's Day Bottle Centerpiece

St. Patrick's Day Bottle Centerpiece

Hi everyone!
We had a gorgeous weekend. The weather was so nice I was able to stay in the garage and do a little bit of cleaning, mainly organizing all the stuff that's been wandering all around the place. While there I met a box of green bottles that reminded me St. Patrick's day is on its way.


The question was how to dress the bottles for the occasion! Remember my SureSwatch review, where you use these films to try your colors instead of painting swatches on the walls? I still had one extra film and it came in handy for this project.

It was used as a stencil. For one of the bottles three pieces were cut and holes were done with a ¾" hole punch. The spaces were then painted.

The punched out circles were then attached to the second bottle. After painting the bottle, the SureSwatch dots were removed.  I liked that they were easy to remove though I didn't get sharp lines, in fact the lines were rough but I didn't mind ;)

For the third bottle, using the same film, very skinny stripes were cut and attached to the bottle. First it was painted white, then each of the colors of the rainbow.

As I said, the lines were raggedy, but they were easy to fix just using my nails. Just like that, I liked the bottles.

But of course with some tags they look way better. You can find the tag printables HERE.


Some gold and the centerpiece is ready to attract some chocolate lovers.

I used the home made version of chalk paint used on the hutch makeover
