Yeah you could use one of your boring glass vases, but these are so much cuter! Plus, they were practically free, so it doesn't hurt if you give them away. For Mother's day this year, Mrs. P wanted to make something that the moms that came over to brunch could take home, so we made these adorable soda bottle DIY vases.
Items needed for this project:
1 can of spray paint
3 or 4 aluminum soda cans
Ribbon or raffia
Step 1: Begin by painting the bottom of the bottles. We gave it a thick coat of spray paint to make sure it covered everything.
Step 2: Allow the bottom of the cans to completely dry. We placed them upside down in a picnic caddy. You can use anything you have around the house. Just make sure it is sturdy as they need to dry for a good 2 hours.
Step 3: Once the bottoms have dried, begin to spray paint the rest of the can. We gave each can 4 coats to make sure that all the labeling was covered. We waited 30 minutes between coats. Once you have applied the final coat of spray paint, allow the paint to completely dry for 4 hours before doing anything else with the vases.
Step 4: Once the spray paint had completely dried, we need to add some small pebbles to the vases since they are made of aluminum and very light. Next with water and place the flowers of you choice in the vases. Tie some raffia or ribbon on the top and your are done!
This flower in our garden was our color inspiration for our Soda Bottle DIY Vases. Feel free to use any color your heart desires. Also, Mrs. P is on a yellow kick right now. Let's see how long it lasts! Hope you get inspired and create your own.
