Today I bring to you a super sweet Candy Corn Bottle Vases project that you can create in a handful of minutes! It's super simple and will look great for the Halloween season. As of late, I haven't been able to resist candy corn crafts. I have ALL KINDS of ideas!
Candy Corn Bottle Vases
You'll need spray paint in white, orange, and yellow. Also gather old vases and glass bottles in various shapes. Mine were a vase from ikea (the dotted one above), an Izze soda bottle, and a fancy Blood orange drink bottle. Clean and scrub off any labels off with Goo-Gone or dishwashing liquid. Let dry completely before painting.
Paint a basecoat of white on the jars following can directions and let dry completely. Admission: I did a terrible job at painting the basecoat and didn't get a photo. I pulled the white pin from the spray paint. Please don't do this. MAJOR FAIL! Haha!
My boyfriend William stepped in to save the day and tried to cover up my mistakes.He then sprayed orange on the middle part leaving a faint mist at top and bottom. He did a first coat, let it dry, then went back in and did another coat. Trust me, it works better to add the orange first! Let dry completely.
Now mist the yellow on the bottom until you get a solid coverage. This will take one or two coats. Let dry.
That's it! You're done! Display your jars with fall flowers in side or in a little grouping. It would be fun to creat an entire vignette on a table or mantle with candy corn sprinkled all around!
Until next time Swellions!
