Like so many good craft ideas, this project started with an impulse buy at Target. Seriously, if I could just make it through one trip without being distracted by the dollar section of an end cap full of stuff I really don’t need.
I was having friends over for dinner, and was, of course, running late. Shocking, I know. I swung by Target for a few last minute food supplies. I wanted to grab Coke to drink, and lucky for me, it was there on the end cap – a cute little 6-pack of glass bottles. Sold!
After drinking the tasty beverage, I couldn’t bear to throw away the bottles. They were just too cute, and I was starting to feel a little crafty.
I began by removing the painted-on label. This was a great job for some nail polish remover and a razor blade. Pro tip: Do NOT stab yourself in the thumb with the edge of the razor blade. It will hurt. Just sayin’.

Sea Glass Painted Bottles – Tutorial
Once your bottles are clean and dry on the outside, tape off the bottles. I chose to tape at an angle and at varying intervals, just to add some interest.
Paint on two coats of the Frost Etching Effect paint. I just used a disposable foam brush to make clean-up easier.
After the paint has dried, gently remove the paint at an angle.
Sea Glass Painted Bottles – The Finished Product
I only painted three of the six mini Coca-Cola bottles. They are the perfect shape and size to display some fresh Trader Joe’s flowers, don’t you think!?!
