How to Make This Upcycled Centerpiece

 

Before you begin, you will need to thoroughly wash and dry the beer bottles you plan to use. Trust me when I tell you that you don’t want the smell of stale beer dregs to waft around your living room.

So rinse them out completely and allow them to dry in the sun beforehand. Also, remember to remove the labels if any.

Step 1

Grab your beer bottles and your spray paint.

Spread out newspapers or lay out a protective splatter sheet before you start spray painting the bottles. Once you’re absolutely certain you’ve protected all surfaces, grab your spray can and paint the bottles.

This project calls for white paint, but you can go crazy with the color(s) you pick.

Step 2

Now that you’ve painted your beer bottles, it’s time to get started on the beer caddies and spray paint them, as well. However, one thing to keep in mind is that you’ll need to paint the insides of the caddy as well.

So get in there and spray paint every nook, cranny, and corner till you’re absolutely certain you’ve got covered all surfaces.

Step 3

You’re going to absolutely love this step of the project: it’s splatter time! To decorate your beer bottles, you can paint the glass however you like with swirls, patterns, and motifs.

Or you can go old school and unleash the Jackson Pollock within you to splatter the entire bottle with bright pops and spurts of color.

You can use a paintbrush and splatter the paint, or you can also use a toothbrush. Just tease the bristles to splatter the paint, and you’ll have a lovely splatter patterned four-pack of beer bottles ready!

Alternatively, you can go in there with a paintbrush and do a little abstract art on your bottles to bring all the splatter together! It might be tempting, but you should allow the bottles to dry completely before using them.

Step 4

While your bottles are drying, you can take the opportunity to decorate your beer caddy.

You have a ton of craft supplies at your disposal to choose from: ribbons, washi tape, glitter, twine or string, or even painting decorative motifs along the sides.

Step 5

Once your beer bottles and your caddy have dried, they’re ready to use. Fill them up with gorgeous flowers, reed grass, dried sprigs of aromatic herbs, and the likes! They’ll be a wonderful and charming addition at the center of the table.
