Roll on paint

Jun 25th

Instead of throwing away your empty roll-on deodorant bottle, why not turn it into something useful?  A paint pot!  These little pots are perfect for young children.

Use a spoon to lever out the roller ball – a little tough, but it does come out, honestly!

Wash the empty bottle out and fill with paint.  I used a couple of teaspoons of acrylic paint and one of water to give a runny consistency, but you could also mix powder paint too.  Pop the ball back in, and there you have it.  Paint the matching colour onto the pots and make a collection!

Another idea is to use with PVA glue – works like a Glue Stick, but a lot cheaper!
