A technique to alter your bottles like magic!

Altered Bottle Art is a great idea for wedding centerpieces and home decor. Here is a step by step tutorial to repurpose bottles to create a lovely centerpiece.

Step 1: Start with applying a coat of gesso onto a clean bottle and let dry.

Step 3: Apply a coat of chalk paint and let the paint dry. I have dabbed the chalk paint using a paint brush to add texture.
