I tried several of the things on Pinterest, but it takes so long to drill a hole in the bottle without a diamond bit! Here's what I had after 30 min of drilling.
See that teeny little dot… Yeah exactly.
Then I remembered seeing where they had painted the inside of a bottle as a means of decoration so I tried that.
The only thing is, the acrylic paint I already had doesn't dry very quickly on glass.
But I do like the marbled look of it. Planning to do about three or four of these in green for a St. Patrick's Day party.
Still didn't have anything that I would give to anyone as a birthday gift. So then I pulled out my stencils.
And did some painting on of letters. I have a friend who is crazy about owels, so that's the theme I went with.
Added some cutesy flowers, just to spice up the bottle.
Then I was in Dollar Tree, and I saw their solar lamps, and thought I bet I can use that! So I brought it home, and did a little blinging.
Took the solar part and lampshade off of the table lamp, and put it on my bottle.
Cut out some coordinating scrapbook paper and glued to the bottom of the jar, just to tie everything together. I think I like it!
