Greetings my Young Living peeps and other glass bottle throw-awayers...
What do we do with all the glass bottles we use every day?
Do you throw them away or recycle?
The Ningxia Red bottles from Young Living are such nice bottles - heavy and nicely shaped.
There are so many products that come in pretty bottles.
Here is an upcycle glass jar/bottle project for you.
Chalkboard spray paint (my preferred brand)
Decorative rope or twine
Beads or any sort of decorative bauble
Just spray and decorate - do a couple of light coats so you don't get drips.
I sprayed the bottle with chalkboard spray paint.
And then wrapped around the neck with decorative baker's string.
I wrapped it around the bottle neck and threaded beads and a leaf from my jewelry making supplies.
The options are unlimited - just play with your design until you are satisfied.
Easy and/or inexpensive projects ≠ cheap and tacky. This was easy and a really good way to upcycle, not to mention very chic.

These are pretty cool.
I love what you did and can't wait to see what else you come up with!!~Deb~
Thanks, Deb. Next is a candle holder – I’d like to do a vase like another reader suggested. I’ve not cut glass before, but have thought I’d like to give it a try.
This is so pretty! What a great idea. Thanks for sharing at What'd You Do This Weekend? 🙂
No matter what I paint the bottles with, the label always shows through. How did manage to cover the label? or did you remove it?
I used chalkboard spray paint and had no problem covering the writing. You could use a spray primer first and then paint. I use Zinnser spray primer when I am concerned about a bleed through.
