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
  • Pen
  • Clippers (optional)
  • Crafting knife

 

STEPS

  1. Peel off the labels
  2. Remove the glue residues using nail polish remover
    1. 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.
    2. Make sure you are not wearing nail polish. I ended up removing my nail polish after removing the glue residues ha.
  3. Use masking tape to mark design locations
  4. Use pen to draw out the designs on the masking tape
    1. I lost the footage of creating the designs on the masking tape using pen. So I don’t anything to show here 🙁
  5. Use a crafting knife to cut out the designs
    1. Be very careful with cutting the design since you are working on a circular surface.
  6. Paint the design, let it dry
    1. I did a few layers so that I can get a nice opaque color
  7. Remove the tapes
    1. This is the most exciting moment! It is a make it or break it moment!
    2. 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!
