DIY + chalkboard bottles

April 16, 2012

/ / / / / / / photo + DIY by the fashion gal / / / / / / /

over the weekend my lovely mother & i hosted a bridal shower for one of my uber-fabulous-girlfriends! we planned a menu full of mexican appetizer's & greek entree's (the brides fave), filled the tables with an assortment of garden flowers n' candles, and gave these chalkboard painted bottles as the guests party favor! now once i heard of chalkboard paint i had 1,000 ideas pop into my head of things i could paint... and these sleek glass bottles were one of them! here is where i bought my bottles & my paint was from good ole Home Depot. now i only have 999 more things to paint with my new {& fabulous} chalkboard paint!

**check out more DIY ((do it yourselves)) here

you'll also need... olive oil, rosemary, raffia ribbon, & chalk!
let's start taping...
take time for this step... taping each bottle can be tedious... but the outcome is worth it! 
paint your first coat horizontal & the second coat vertically... see your paint can for more instruction.
and voila! not such a bad bridal shower gift, right!? 

all the gals seemed pretty happy with their new chalkboard-olive-oil!
... and all the bride's family got to each take home one of these pretty jars full of flowers! 


how was your weekend?
(( ps: happy tax day. ))
