DIY Swirl Paint Swirl Bottles



Looking for a fun and creative project that you can make with the kids? These easy swirl paint vases would make a great gift for Mother’s Day or any other occasion and are fun to make. Here’s how to create them.




  • Glass Bottle or Container
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Water






Set out supplies and slowly start pouring a small amount of paint of the primary color you’d like to stat with into the bottle.


If acrylic paint is older or thick, add a few drops of water to help thin it out so that it swirls better. Be sure to not add too much so that it adheres to the glass.


Next, add a few drops of each additional color into the bottle and start to slowly tip and swirl the jar so that the paint covers the entire surface. Add more paint and twirl and rotate as needed until you get the desired effect.




Allow the excess paint to drain out by placing the container upside down for 5-6 hours.
It’s lots of fun to see what different color combinations you can create!
