It’s so easy to do! Here’s all you need:

Coke Bottle

Masking Tape

Westcott Hobby Knife

Paint Brushes (1 medium and 1 fine)

PLAID Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint in Emerald

PLAID Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint in Red

Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive

Art Glitter Metal Tip Applicator

Art Glitter Dazzlers in Biker Babes

Rhinestone Trim


Here (above) is a picture of what the bottle looked like before…

Instructions: Use masking tape to mask off the center label portion of the coke bottle. Apply PLAID Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint in Emerald to the outside of the bottle. Let dry. Repeat until desired level of opacity is achieved. When dry use a Westcott Hobby Knife to cut the dried paint from the masking tape, so when you peel off the tape it does not peel up the paint. Using a fine tip brush, apply PLAID Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint in Red to the label area of the bottle. Carefully apply Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive with the Art Glitter Metal Tip Applicator over the words Coca-Cola and sprinkle on Art Glitter Dazzlers in Biker Babes. Let dry. Cut two pieces of rhinestone trim to fit the top and bottom borders of the label area. Run a line of Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to the top and bottom borders of the label area and apply trim. Let dry. Repeat on sides, allowing bottle to dry before turning. Makes a great vase, candle holder or paperweight!
