A Christmas Decoration

Just want to remind you about the SPARK YOUR CREATIVITY challenge going on until the end of the month! Check out the details HERE and see what is being offered this month as a prizes.
 
I decided to decorate another bottle.
See below for a mini-tutorial on how I make the decorated bottle.
This would be great to put candy canes in!
Or pencils for a teacher gift!
You could put a tealight in it.
There's so many things it could be used for!

Challenges:
~Craft-Room Challenge-alter it
~Just Keep Creating-anything Christmas
~Party Time Tuesdays-anything BUT a card
~Alphabet-R is for recycle
~Craftymess-anything goes
~Eclectic Ellapu-anything goes
~2 Sisters-anything goes
~Totally Gorjuss-traditional Christmas colors


Here's how I paint my bottles.
Supplies:
~cleaned bottle
~acrylic paints (I use antique white as a base color)
~sponge
~tray (optional)
~clear spray lacquer
 

 
1. Pour some paint in the tray. Dab the sponge into the paint.
 
2. Dab the sponge onto the bottle. Let it dry THOROUGHLY.
Then do a second coat and let it dry THOROUGHLY.

 
3. Clean the sponge and then paint the bottle again with the color you want it.
Wait for it to dry and paint it the second time.
 
4. Once it's really dry, (I usually wait overnight) spray it with the clear spray.


5.Let it dry AGAIN and embellish it as you would like.
 
Decorate with ribbon, twine, buttons, rubons, strips of paper, flowers, etc.
 
Enjoy!
