TAKE A NUMBER PLEASE


THIS EASY PROJECT IS QUITE CHARMING when finished ...
these vintage bottles add pa-zazz to any window sill or table scape.

YOU'LL NEED
a grouping of vintage bottles
generic stencils including numbers
black craft paint
a stencil brush
spray satin poly


stencil your favorite number or letter on individual bottles


allow craft paint to dry ... this doesn't take very long
find a well ventilated corner of the garage for the spray poly
spray each bottle lightly ...
allow to dry
Poly seals the craft paint


If you want to get real snazzy, add a piece of burlap before stenciling ..
you could even spell out a word, lining the bottles up to complete the spelling!


place on your favorite window sill

... NJOY!!
