Craft Week Part 1

As I approach the two month mark until our wedding,  I'm starting to realize there are quite a few DIY projects that I've told myself I would do, but still haven't gotten around to doing.  Mr. T's three day  out-of-town work trip couldn't have come at a better time.  I've decided to delve into those projects this week while he's away.  That way I can mess up the apartment as much as I want to without feeling guilty about not cleaning up after myself.  Craft week began yesterday with making faux colored milk glass bottles.  The picture below was my inspiration.

I found this picture on Pinterest, but there was no link to step by step instructions.  After searching a little bit more I found this tutorial from House of Earnest. I stopped by a second-hand store on my lunch break yesterday and picked up 6 vases for a total of $6.00.  Then went to the craft store for some cheap acrylic paint and picked up six different shades.  All you do is pour the paint into the vases, roll them around until they are fully coated.  Let them dry up-side-down in a Solo cup. If you're having trouble having the paint fully coat the vase, just add one or two drops of water to the paint.  Here's the final product.

I've got a lot more of these to make, but I'm thrilled with how they turned out!  A cheap way to add unique hand-made decor to our reception.


  1. Love it, love it, love it.

    And I'll gladly take one after your wedding ;)

  2. This is such a great idea, and sounds so easy! Definitely on my to-do list!
