INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Transfer the provided cactus patterns. Use a medium brush to paint the cactus on one bottle in Festive Green. Use a small brush to paint the flowers in Purple Pizzazz and Spiced Pumpkin.
  2. Use a medium brush to apply Extraterrestrial Green to the cactus. Use a small brush to outline it in Aurora Borealis Green. Use a small brush to apply Solar Flare Orange and Ultraviolet to the flowers. Use a small brush to add highlights in Gold Shooting Star.
  3. Continue the process on the remaining two bottles with the other two cactus designs. (See photo for color placement.)

HELPFUL HINTS

Once complete, use as candleholders or add fairy twinkle lights (kind with the battery pack in the "cork").
