Convert a bottle from your scrapyard into a nice and beautiful drawing room decor piece in minutes!!

Take an empty transparent bottle. The different the shape is the better!!

Use a 3D outlined and draw patterns on the bottle. Give your creativity the wings! Your imagination in drawing patterns is a key differentiator and will make the piece stand out!!

The finished pattern will look like this. I have used a 3D gold outliner. You can use colours of your choice. Just remember, the pattern should be a distinct one. You can also choose cute 🐦 patterns too!!

This is a key step. Once the pattern outliner has dried ( generally takes 2-3 hours depending on the weather conditions), fill the spaces with glass paints.

Again it is important that you choose colours which are striking, bold and at the same time not jarring to the aesthetics of the place

This is the finished piece.

A Tip: It takes nearly 1-2 days for the glass paint to dry. I recommend that you space out the colouring over 2-3 days time by doing it in parts. Colour the front section first and allow the paint to dry. And then go to the back.

Tip 2: Pl use a thin coat of paint. It is enough and will also dry quickly. Also, this will prevent runs of the paint across the borders.

Another view. I have used white and yellowstring lights ( 🔋 operated) to further embellish the looks.

    It's beautiful! Before I got to the last picture I was thinking of using Fairy Lights, and then, poof - there they were! The bottle is soooooo pretty. Great great great project! Thanks for sharing.
