Spray painted bottles and tape

I pinned this great picture from

What a fun idea!  I also liked the unlimited possibilities of size, shape and color provided on the bottles, paint color and tape.

This week I stopped in to get some magnets at Michael's and found that they had rolls of monogrammed packaging tape on sale for 50 cents a roll.  However, I am such a dork, I thought the rolls had the entire alphabet printed on one roll.  As in all 26 letters on a single roll.  I didn't look closely enough to see that each roll contained only one letter.  If I had looked closer I would have actually left the store with a letter that had some significance to our family.  But instead, I came home with a roll of M tape, H tape and G tape.  Oh well, it was only 50 cents. 

So here is a photo of the project supplies.

I sprayed about 3 light coats of glossy white paint on the jar.  Then positioned the tape which stuck perfectly.  I did not apply a sealer coat but may do so if it seems I will be washing the jar often.  Right now it is just for "looks."

But, it does "look" pretty, doesn't it? 

Cost of this project
I had the jar already. Zero $$
Spray paint $3.24
Packing Tape .50 cents
Total cost- $3.74

You could whip up several of these and still only spend $3.74 as I didn't come close to using all of the paint or tape.
