Inexpensive Vases

I saw a similar DIY project in Martha Stewart a few months back and planned on creating these inexpensive vases, but never got around to it.  Now, after finding a similar post on, I think it is about time to complete this project!  Check out the simple directions below to add paint to the interior of any glass bottle and create unique, one-of-a-kind vases.  Martha also suggests getting colored glass and using white paint to accentuate the tinted glass.  How easy is this?

  • After finding some bottles with great shape and detail, remove the labels, clean the inside and let them dry out completely.
  • Next, pour a good size dollop of paint into the bottom of the bottle. The color options here are endless. This set is monochromatic, but a few bold contrasting pieces would be quite nice as well.
  • With the paint in the bottle, you will have to slowly rotate the bottle to get the paint to coat the entire interior of the bottle. Depending on the opacity of the paint, this might require two coats. (Acrylic paint will work for this as it will adhere to the glass, but note that you shouldn’t fill the bottle with water later.)
  • Let it dry thoroughly and you are all set.
