DIY Pumpkin Decor Using A Glass Bottle

6 Materials
1 Day

I had some old glass bottles that I had been saving for a project. With fall coming it's the perfect time to create DIY pumpkin decor for your home. You can see more of my crazy creations here

These are the 3 glass bottles I had. I removed the labels and washed them.

I put some Apple Barrel orange paint in a glass jar, added a small amount of water, and mixed it up. You could skip the water if you like. I then poured the mixture into the glass bottles.

I rotated the bottle and let the paint coat the inside of the glass bottle. Once the entire bottle was coated, I tipped the bottle upside down and let all of the extra paint drain out.

Here's a quick picture of the painted bottles. You'll want to leave the top open so that the paint can dry inside.

I added a little hot glue, and wrapped twine around the stem of the bottle. I hot glued the other end to hold it in place. I then hot glued on some fake leaves, and a longer strand of twine.

Now you could stop here and leave them just like this or you can take it to the next step...

I pulled the stem off of a Walmart solar light and placed it into the bottle.

Now I can use them outside to light the porch, railing, or walkway for the whole fall season.

    I tried this last year, once all the paint dripped back out the bottle was almost clear. Did you do this process more than once? I kept spinning and draining and still the bottle looked murky/clear.

    I went ahead and decorated the outside of the bottle but the painted part is just funky. Lol
