Glass Bottle and Tin Can Repurpose

Tin Cans & Tequila Bottles 

Repurposing and Reusing

{shabby style!}

After I got drunk the other night… just Kidding!! hehehe
Actually, I have been saving a bag full of tins cans for months now and I knew I needed to get my tail in gear and actually
DO something with them. My big kick in the pants was seeing this gorgeous photo on facebook. I really liked it and wanted to try to make something similar for myself!

So, I raided my jewelry drawer of all the sparkly stuff I love, but let’s face it… never wear, grabbed my trusting glue gun,
some scrap ribbon and got busy!
Sparkly stuff like this ponytail/pin.
I have never worn this. Not one single time.
I used my needle nose pliers and yanked that stuff right off!
I did a little mixology to get the aqua shade I was lusting after using Then, I grabbed my trusty Purdy paint brush and slipped some on my can and bottle, then worked on a little something else while they dried.
Note: *I’m sure you can use any of the new glass approved craft paints, or even some Maison Blanche paint, as it grabs the glass really well too!
When they were good and dry, I used a little steal wool to distress them. I like the silver showing through the paint on the can a lot!
I bought this last Fall at Good Will.
I didn’t even realize it was a tequila bottle until I got home. Then I felt a little funny paying a $1.50 for it, but, it’s a cool shape! I never used it for that idea I had, so it’s been sitting around pretty lonely since then!
I think it looks much prettier now.
I already enjoy the sparkle lots more on this bottle,
then I ever did in my jewelry drawer!

The Jasmine is blooming, along with the Roses…

A little ribbon scrap was all that I needed for a simple embellishment.

A few twists, and I had a rose for an accent.


These tiny pink roses are so fragrant… just the two blooms were enough to perfume the air while I took these photographs.

This craft cost me;
 $1.50 for the bottle, one piece of old jewelry, ribbon scrap and a tiny bit of paint.
That fits my criteria of “Cheap & Easy” perfectly.
This Pineapple Mint is the best smelling stuff ever… plus, the deer do not eat it.
I have a few plants and when the breeze picks it up the backyard smells like heaven!
So, I have got one can painted.
… with about 25 more to go!
I think I better find another craft…
I hope you liked my silly glass bottle and tin can repurpose.
