Decor By The Numbers

Savvy City Farmer has a brief tutorial on how to make great stenciled bottles out of vintage containers. City Farmer used vintage bottles, number stencils, black craft paint, a stencil brush and spray satin poly to create the look. Stencil, let it dry, spray with poly then you're done!

I say, why stop with black? I want to try this with some bright primary colors for summer, or paint letters to form words and names with them. And who says the bottles have to be vintage? I think I'll try them with some new bottles in quirky sizes and shapes and see how it looks. I'll be sure to report back when I do. Use them in a centerpiece, or just place them on a shelf or windowsill.
