I had a can of black chalkboard paint in the basement and I thought I would give this idea a shot. I picked up a glass milk bottle at Salvation army for a buck and my idea was put into action. How about this for a nice and easy way to personalize your vase? I can write whatever I want on the bottle to commemorate an event, activity or special occassion. I can envision it now – “Happy Mother’s Day!” (hint, hint).
