Bottle decoration

step 1

Today I’ve decided to make something different: Bottle decoration!

What you would need:

  • White acrylic paint
  • Construction tape
  • Empty bottle
  • Different type of pasta (linguine..etc)
  • Paint (watercolor/acrylic)
  • Paint brushes
  • Glue gun and glue (preferably clear)
  • Ribbon (gold, yellow, etc)
  • Rope

Step 1:

Have an empty bottle, doesn’t matter what type. I’ve used a wine bottle. Empty it out, clean it with soap, and dry for a bout three hours.

Step 2:

Place tape for the windows area and paint it with white acrylic paint.Preferably three times.

Step 2

Color your pasta into your favorite color (I’ve used burn umber/watercolor paint), and placed these pieces on the bottom of the bottle, all round the bottom of it (like rocks).

After all of them are glued on, make sure that the color didn’t fade while you were placing, because this is the perfect time for recoloring them.

Step 3:

Peel off the windows’ tape. Arrange the shutters or the outside window with linguini pasta and/or ribbons (as shown on the picture).

I’ve used orange paint for the pasta, and gold ribbon for the outer frame. While using the paint, you can also fix the spots in between the bottom pasta pieces, yellow and brown tones would do.

Step 4:

Step 4

On the other side of the bottle, you can either draw a tree or do as I did, make the leaves out of the pasta.

Which you would color afterwards. I used three different shades: Green deep, sap green, and emerald green.

Step 5:

Step 5

If you’ve made any top windows, complete those as well. Decorate the frame of the windows.

If not, use your rope and glue it as shown.

I’ve mixed the rope with gold wire, so that it would match the top window frame design.

I’ve also placed a gold ribbon at the nozzle.

Complete the bottle design by adding different decorations to it. You can view my bottle house images on the slideshow below. Good luck!
