6 brilliant ways to reuse your old coffee mate bottles


6 brilliant ways to reuse your old coffee mate bottles

First, removed the label & wash the container.


Then, cut off the top & cut two slots in the sides.


After that, spray paint the bottle with Krylon Looking Glass spray paint & mixed equal parts vinegar & water into a spray bottle. Immediately after spraying, apply the vinegar/water mixture & blot with a paper towel - this will add mercury glass effect.


Next, add dirt, Dollar Store gems & your plant! I allowed smaller parts of the plant to peek out.


Then, wrap twine around the grooves in the bottle & hung it up!


I love how this looks in my room & no one will believe what it originally was!
