I am thrilled to be sharing one more project from our recycled-bottles-that-I-just-cannot-let-go-of today. I was supposed to throw these bottles out, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it… So they quickly became my most favorite Valentine’s Day craft ideas.
Because I added a small square of chalk-board paint, wrote out the word LOVE.
Bought a few pink tulips, and made this…
Which, I think might be my favorite project yet, and so incredibly easy to make.
In case you missed the Advent Wreath tutorial here are the simple steps to create these vases:
- Collect a few wine bottles
- Spray paint them white, doing multiple light coats to prevent dripping
- Using a felt brush paint on two coats of chalkboard paint in an imperfect square, centered on the front
- Write in the word LOVE
- Add water and then a few simple, pretty flowers
They make me smile. I am excited to share with you tomorrow a few other lovely items going into the store to continue our Black & White LOVE for this Valentines Day.

Wow, I should have saved my Christmas bottles I spray painted. These are so cute.
I just found your site and I LOVE IT! This is such a cute idea – especially for weddings! I am going to let all our brides know about it – If I like to your blog will that be ok…. new to this so not quite sure on the ‘rules’!
I included a link to this post in my “101 coolest reusable craft ideas” post. I post about frugal ways to have a cool life while spending less, and this definitely made the list. These are really beautiful!
Oh wow, I only just discovered this! I am SO doing this this Valentine’s day!!! Thanks!
Cute! Here’s a fun tip: Throw a penny in each vase to help the tulips stand up straight!
This is such a fantastic craft! Thank you for sharing. I did it this past week, and blogged about my results (while also crediting you and plugging your awesome blog).
I just made these for a bridal shower I hosted and everyone LOVED them! <3
