Here's a super simple way to turn painted wine bottle vases (namely the ones I wrote about here) into something a little more bold and decorative. With just a permanent black marker, we had fun applying designs and illustrations to our painted bottles. And the results really are so much fun, and perfect for a casual summer party, or even something more sophisticated if you spend the time to draw with precision.
Have a favorite geometric pattern that you'd like to see in your home? Apply it to a bottle and enjoy! So much easier than covering a wall with something that you may just tire of sooner rather than later!
And it's always a great creative exercise to get kids (and yourself) to draw on something three-dimensional! So paint some bottles white, or any light color, and enjoy using them as canvases for some original art!
