Upcycling Bottles & Containers
I was inspired by these vintage ceramic bottles on a recent sale on OneKingsLane and thought it might be fun to take some Sculpey bakeable clay and some recyclables and see what I could do with them instead of just tossing them into the recycling bin.
Tools I needed: Some containers (a wine bottle and an empty candle container), white matte spray paint, Sculpey white bakeable clay (but any color will do since you’ll paint it anyway), a carving tool (optional) and not pictured are rubber stamps.
Rolled the clay into a ball and then flattened it very firmly onto the bottle. Then using some rubber stamps, I stamped out 2013 on it as New Year’s Eve candle holder.
Ditto for the candle container, but spelled out LIGHT instead. Figure I could toss in a tea light and it could be a nice glowing candle holder still.
Baked in the oven at 275 degrees for 15 minutes. Allowed to cool and painted 2 coats of matte creamy spray paint on top. Voila. Ready for a taper candle, some flowers or a tealight and we’re good to go.
