Let me show you how to easily turn plain glass bottles, of any shape and size, into beautiful aqua blue beauties, with a stained glass look.
Welcome friends! Today is our monthly Create With Me challenge hosted by Samantha from Little Bits of Home.
At the start of each month, we ask YOU to vote on what material we should use in our next Create With Me Challenge. Then we share our projects using the material you voted for!
It is so much fun to see what everyone comes up with! This month you voted for glass jars, which I was routing for!
For some reason I tend to have a lot of glass jars and vases that I pick up at thrift stores or flea markets.

I wanted the glass to have an almost opaque look so I used a very light hand when spray painting. You can certainly make it darker if you want. The color is just beautiful and it was so easy to achieve the stained glass look.
I used four mason jars in a thrift store basket for a great Spring centerpiece:
Demijohns can be very costly. Old wine bottle jugs are an inexpensive knockoff. These are probably my favorite:
I wanted a coastal look so I simply wrapped twine around the top with starfish. Here they are on my Mantel:
