Watch a Video on how to Upcycle a Glass Bottle

I have a habit of saving interesting boxes, bottles, bags, packing materials, etc. that I think look cool. I keep them in a box (or three) labeled “Alterables” for when I want to create something but the idea of a card or canvas doesn’t scratch the creative itch. This glass jar is the sort that comes full of candy or nuts around the holidays and was overdue for a spruce-up.

Fireworks! Sprays will dry on glass or plastic, they just need a good long while to do so. You can carefully use a heat gun to help speed it up, but make sure it’s fully dry before spraying with a sealant to protect it for the long haul.
