Materials:
*Beer bottles (any other small bottle will do great as well).
*Glue, Mod podge, hot glue gun (if you want to add it to your list).
*Fabric or Burlap (any color will do).
*Ribbons and bows (combine the colors with the fabric to give that cohesive look we love in décor).
*Paint. Even though I used spray paint you can use regular acrylic paint and brushes).
*Pine cones, flowers, buttons.. you can get really creative with these elements… they will give life to your project!
*Glitter can also be part of the project
1-I started by removing all the labels in the bottle, you can use the soaking in water method or remove them with a scraper, make sure you also remove all residue inside and outside the bottle and let it dry completely.
The labels can also be removed with a scraper, use goo gone if the glue residue stays on the bottle.
2-Paint the bottle using spray paint or acrylic paint making sure you cover it completely. Let it dry for 3 hours.
While the bottle dries measure and cut the fabric and ribbon according to the design You’ve chosen for the bottle, (when wrapping the bottle around remember to measure the fabric a bit longer to allow it to overlap).
Once the bottle is completely dry proceed to cover it with Mod podge (you can also use glue) and
apply the fabric on the glued surface making sure you press firmly for the elements to adhere to each other. Let it dry completely
As I was thinking about the holidays already, I gathered some of the pine cones and pine foliage from my craft supplies and applied some glitter to the edges of the pine cones and sprinkled them with glitter. Set them aside to dry completely…
Here is where you can get creative mixing elements to accent your bottle!.
