It is still very hot outside and now I have a cold so I am only working on small projects. Such a bummer to catch a summer cold.
I have been saving special bottles until I had time to alter them.
The first one started life out as an L'Occitane Perfume bottle.
I unscrewed the top, cleaned it very well then found an image in my files I thought would look cute with what I had in mind.
I decided to use these two little angels.
And I really like the little saying at the bottom.
I added pretty little string pearls to the bottom and pearl medallions to the sides. Next I glued the bottle to a Dollar Store glass candle holder using E6000.
At the top I covered the bottom of the clear knob with pink velvet ribbon added crystals and pearls and beads to the top.
I used two metal filigree pieces around the neck of the bottle. And on the left side added a white rose, lace and more pink velvet ribbon.
I used distress ink on the back of the images added another metal filagree piece and stamped some vintage words. Then I gave all the paper images a light coat of Mod Podge.
This little altered bottle is now living on the nightstand in my guest room.
For the second bottle I poured white acrylic paint and silver glitter then turned it upside down on paper towels to dry.
I added this image I found on Pinterest by printing it out on decal paper and applying it to the bottle.
I added a couple of rows of lace and vintage rick rack to the top of the decal and to the bottom of the decal. On each side of the decal I applied silver Stickles to the edges.
Frst I inserted a chandelier acrylic crystal into the cork top. I used a cork covered with silver foil, next I dripped with wax then silver Stickles.
Around the top edge I glued blue velvet ribbon, added to silvered metal pieces, 2 white roses, 2 drapes of silver pearls. And added a lace medallion to the front and back.
Also added a lace medallion to the back.
