There will be weekly live chats, downloadable templates and gorgeous how-to videos. Best of all, since these projects are made from paper, glue, and other basic crafting materials, making them won’t break the bank!
Exciting news! Creativebug is offering each of you a free 14 day trial (normally is $9.95) with the promo code: WEDDING. You can sign up here, class starts June 3rd. Even if you’re not getting married I think all of these projects would be a great addition to your next party or event. So grab some friends, a bottle of wine and get crafting!

Time: 10 minutes
Materials: glass bottles, spray paint
It’s no secret that I have a mild obsession with spray painting glass (see here and here). These ombre milk bottles would make great table vases for your next party or gathering this summer and only take a few minutes to make. Perfect for last minute decor!
All you need to do is place your bottle upside down and spray paint the very bottom. The paint will trickle up the sides giving you an ombre effect. You can see my 10 minute vase if you need further instructions!
