Here's a warm and cozy idea to chase away those winter blues and brighten up your home after the holidays! It's called reverse decoupage using a winter themed napkin and dimensional snowflakes. It's a great way of customizing a recycle glass bottle for almost any occasion. With this technique you just decoupage a paper napkin on the back of a bottle, giving off a see-through the glass picture which allows you to use the front, inside, and also the back of the bottle to add additional decorative themed items!
DIY Lighted Decoupage Winter Scene
Let's get started by cleaning the surface of a clean glass bottle with alcohol to remove grease and any dirt that might have been missed and let dry.
Lay the opened napkin print side up on your work surface and place the bottle on top of the design and centering. Next, dip the tip of a paint brush in water and dab around the edges of the bottle until you have completely wet the napkin around the bottle.
Next, coat the back of the bottle with Mod Podge using a paint brush.
Then lay the printed side of the napkin face down on the bottle, centering napkin. Brush out napkin with additional mod podge.
Let dry completely and then use sandpaper to remove any rough edges.
Have fun adding snowflakes all over!
And finally, insert the cork twinkle lights for a lovely night-light for those cold wintry evenings!
