I re-purposed the mini milk bottles from the flavored milk post earlier this week to make these pretty pastel dipped vases. I love how these look lined up together on a plain white tablecloth. They’d be particularly cute for a baby shower, or just a pretty bottle to drink something yummy out of.
Check out this really easy technique for getting that perfect ‘dipped’ look that’s so popular right now…

1. Clean off jars well (I bought my set of mini milk bottles here on etsy)
2. Grab a thick rubberband and wrap it around the bottom of the bottle so it’s a nice ‘dipped’ angle shape (see below)
3. Apply craft paint beneath the rubber band. I love this set from Martha Stewart
4. Apply a second coat. When dry, snip off the rubber band with scissors, which is better than trying to roll it off the bottle we found and potentially getting built up wet paint on the other parts of the bottle.
