One of the many changes you will see coming your way here at A Disney Mom is in the craft department. I am always going to feature my favorite Disney inspired crafts with you (duh), but I am also going to share some of the other projects I do around my house. Especially with our new home slowly coming together, I have a lot of ideas to share with you! I hope you enjoy them! For today, we are going to be making these gold-dipped milk bottles:
And here’s how to make these babies!
1. Gather supplies: milk bottles (I found these at Ikea, you could also use the Starbucks bottles), gold spray paint, painter’s tape, and a sponge brush.
2. Tape of the areas of the bottle you don’t want painted. I decided to make all three of mine look different for some variety, but you could do them however you want.
3. Now it is time for the fun part, the painting! Make sure you are painting in a well ventilated area and cover your surface before you begin. For these bottles, I wanted a little bit of texture, so I sprayed the bottle all around and then lightly dragged the sponge brush all around the painted areas. This helped give the bottles a little more interest, but you could certainly skip that step if you wanted a smoother look.
I really love how these guys turned out, my only problem now is figuring out where to display them. I’m thinking they are going to live in our new kitchen, which, drumroll please…….is done! FINALLY! It has been almost a month since we started the kitchen reno and I can’t tell you how many times during that month I wanted to throw in the towel. But it is done and I am so excited with how it came together. Now comes the fun part, organizing and decorating! Can’t wait to share it with you soon!
