An easy and fun DIY video on how I decorated a Bud Light beer bottle so that it looks like a starry night (or… at least supposed to be LOL). I later on added flowers and it looks a lot better! In the video you don't see the flower since I didn't have the fake flowers at that time haha.

When I saw my boyfriend drinking this beer, I was like LET ME KEEP THAT BOTTLE! It is such a pretty navy blue color. The bottle itself is just really pretty. In this project, I added a little touch so that it looks like a starry night. The final result can be used either as just a room decor or as a flower vase.
Here are a list of materials that you need:
- An empty bottle (I used Bud Light Platinum beer bottle which is a navy blue bottle)
- Acetone nail polish remover
- Nail polish remover pad
- White acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- A paint holder or just a paper plate to hold the paint
- Masking tape
- Clippers (optional)
- Crafting knife
- Peel off the labels
- Remove the glue residues using nail polish remover
- This pretty bottle is one of those bottles with powerful glue, so it leaves a large amount of residues, so I will be using nail polish remover to remove that.
- Make sure you are not wearing nail polish. I ended up removing my nail polish after removing the glue residues ha.
- Use masking tape to mark design locations
- Use pen to draw out the designs on the masking tape
- I lost the footage of creating the designs on the masking tape using pen. So I don’t anything to show here 🙁
- Use a crafting knife to cut out the designs
- Be very careful with cutting the design since you are working on a circular surface.
- Paint the design, let it dry
- I did a few layers so that I can get a nice opaque color
- Remove the tapes
- This is the most exciting moment! It is a make it or break it moment!
- I am so glad it turned out to be an awesome looking bottle. I love it a lot!
Here are some tips that I learned from this project.
Tips & Things I Learned
- Instead of drawing the stencil on the bottle, you can draw it out on a flat surface first so that you can create a better design.
- Use clippers or something to prevent the bottle from rolling when you are painting the design.
- I thought I was being smart by using the cotton pad that I do not like. Phew, I ended up having to use the better one because the one I don’t like ended up making the project more messy! Like this one right here!
That is it!
Good luck and have fun!
