I had a few bits and scraps of lace leftover from the costume challenge and some fun bottles from the dollar bin at Target and I thought I would make Halloween bottles.
I always love a good decoupage project, there is nothing like picking Mod Podge off your fingers for days afterwards. 🙂
A decoupage medium like Mod podge
tacky white craft glue or glitter glue
black fine glitter
Interesting dried flower stalks
Gold spray paint
I first decoupaged the lace onto the bottles. You can find directions on how to decoupage here.
The circular bottle was a bit of a challenge, but after I trimmed a few “sticky outie bits” the fabric laid perfectly flat.
After that dried, I painted white craft glue onto the bottles and applied the glitter.
Then while THAT dried, I spray painted and glittered my dried flower heads. I just sniped some cone-flowers from my back yard. I gave them a coat of gold spray paint and then used the craft glue and gold glitter to make them a bit fancier. If you don’t have those, you could use sticks or even pom poms.
I ended up displaying them on a craft wood slice with a few pumpkins.
I like the sparkle the glitter gives them.
If you think you are going to use real flowers with water in them you are going to want to use a sealer to make them just a bit more durable.
I think bigger bottles would be fun too. It would be pretty to also do this on recycled jars, or with white lace for the holidays. I like that it’s so versatile!
