Having reusable seasonal decor not only saves you a ton of money but it makes for a really fun statement. Here's how to turn ordinary glass bottles into reusable partyware for your next Monster Bash. 

You'll need: 
A set of Glass Milk Bottles
Black Chalkboard Paint for Glass
Masking Tape
A  flat tipped craft brush

Start by wrapping your glass with masking tape. You may have the best luck in using small strips of tape to make each band. That should keep them even, especially around the smaller areas like the neck of your glass, instead of bunching up the way it would if you used one long section..

Time for Paint!

Use your flat tipped brush to apply a thin layer of paint to your exposed sections. Allow to dry thoroughly, according to the manufacturer's direction, before applying a second coat.

After your second coat is applied wait until your paint is completely dry before attempting to remove your tape. Otherwise you could take up some of your paint with it and you won't get the crisp, straight lines you're going for. Then again, a little aged paint job might lend to a more ghoulish affair!

Bake to Make Dishwasher Safe
