Wanting to make your wedding a little more green? Up cycle wine bottles to create these eye catching centerpieces.

Supplies: Wine bottles (Start saving ‘em or call around to local restaurants and offer to pick up empty bottles) • spray paint (Choose a combination of satin and glossy paint to add more interest) • primer • gold metallic paint • round paint sponges

Step One. In a well ventilated area, paint your bottles in light even coats. Don’t apply the paint too heavily or you’ll end up with drips. If your bottles are dark colored glass like brown or green, use primer first.

Step Two. When the bottles are dry gather your metallic paint and sponge brushes. Pour a small amount of the metallic paint onto a paper plate.

Step Three. Lightly dab one of the round sponge brushes into the metallic paint. Tap excess paint onto the paper plate.

Step Four.  Gently dab the round paint sponge onto the bottle. Repeat to create a pattern you love.

Step Five. Add water and flowers; then arrange a mix of taller and shorter bottles on the reception tables.
