I am really loving spray paint these days and all the fun projects I have recycled! Frosted Bottles is my latest project. Who knew salt would be the perfect home decor craft supply for the holidays. I didn’t spend any money on this because I had all of the material on hand. This is going on our dining room mantle. Actually, I can’t decide if I want it on the mantle or as a center piece for our dinner table.
It was really easy but just make sure you use good glue otherwise your salt will keep falling off at the touch. I used a glue that wasn’t spray and that is what happened. Then I tried it with spray glue and it was perfect. Well, until my son decided he needed a rocky terrain for his cars and had them go up and down the bottle knocking off all the salt.
You will need:
- Epsom Salt
- Bottles: wine and juice
- white paint
- spray glue
1. You will need to place newspaper over your work area.
2. Place your bottles on the work area and spray paint it with white gloss paint that dries fast. If you get spray paint that doesn’t dry fast it will drip.
3. Once the paint dries, spray the glue onto the bottle and then
roll the bottle in the salt.
4. Once it’s covered in the salt stand it up and spray the bottles again to make sure the salts stay intact. It’s been raining here in my neck of the woods so it took a whole day for them to dry.
Fill it with Christmasy flowers, tree limbs, silvery sparkly stuff. I painted some tree limbs white and placed a limb into each bottle.
