With just a few supplies and a little creativity, you can easily craft this beautiful Altered Art Chalk Painted Bottle. We’re sharing all the steps with you, so that you can create your own charming masterpiece; but be warned, making these pretty bottles is so much fun, you might become addicted!
You can pull the art from anywhere you find inspiration; maybe you have a collection of greeting cards or old postcards, or even a special photograph that you cherish. Holiday prints are another popular option for creating altered art chalk painted bottles.
Gather your supplies, and prepare to have fun! Chalk painting on thrifted bottles is a great way to relax and let your creativity take over. Let’s get started!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- 1 glass bottle with lid, labeling removed, (I used a Crown Royal bottle), rinsed and dried thoroughly.
- Little Birdie Chalk Paint in Pink Ballet
- Little Birdie Chalk Paint in Tattered Lace
- Little Birdie Chalk Paint in Charcoal
- Little Birdie Floriana Lavender Creme Flowers
- Scrap of Paper Art for front of bottle
- Scrap of Medium Grit Sandpaper
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Assorted Ribbon and Trims for embellishing
Step 1. Paint the entire surface of the bottle with Chalk Paint in Pink Ballet.
Step 2. Add Chalk Paint in Tattered Lace to some areas of the bottle, which will add a subtle variation in the paint when the project is finished.
Step 3. When the bottle is dry, use the sand paper to gently buff the surface, revealing some of the finer details of the piece, as shown.
Step 4. Trim your paper art to fit the front of the bottle.
Step 5. Use Mod Podge to coat the area you wish to adhere the art to, then apply the art, and cover with additional Mod Podge to seal it to the bottle.
Step 6. Add a narrow trim around the perimeter of the art, as shown. You could also use a creative, chunky sequin mix like Dazzle Cocktail.
Step 7. Adhere Floriana flowers to the bottle in an arrangement that is pleasing to your eye. I like to cluster my flowers in either one, three or five flowers. I also add the leaves that come in this pretty flower pack so that they extend onto the sides of the bottle.
Step 8. Add additional trims around the neck of the bottle.
Step 9. Paint the lid of the bottle using Chalk Paint in Charcoal.
Step 10. When dry, reattach the lid, and add a bold offset ribbon and pom pom trim to the neck of the bottle.
The completed Altered Art Chalk Painted Bottle is ready to display, or give as a gift. I love to place mine with pretty perfume bottles and vanity items.
Whatever style and color you choose, your design will be fabulous because YOU created it!
