Old glass bottle into a candle stick – new decoupage project


It’s been a while since I posted new projects into my blog. I was really busy working and writing, as I am a copywriter. But I had some time to craft, too. Here is one of my little glass decoupage projects.

I have to admit that I have found this bottle somewhere on the lake bank. I live in a beautiful neighbourhood, but some people make this place a mess. I picked this bottle up and decided to make something special out of it.

The bottle is good, because it does not get turned over easily; it has a wide bottom. So, I decided to turn it into a candle holder. We need one because the do turn the lights off once in a while. BTW, I have found another similar bottle, but a bit smaller in size and I’ll make another candle holder out of it to match this one.

First, as usual I have painted the bottle with white acrylic paint. Then I added some blue shade into it and painted the bottle using a brush. I make upward strokes to add different colors and texture to the bottle. Finally I decoupaged it with spring flowers and covered with transparent polish. It’s a ten min project, if you use hairdryer to speed up the drying processes. But it looks nice. I have managed to turn a piece of trash into something useful and good-looking! Pin it, if you like it!

 

Decoupage ideas: French style glass bottle decoupage


I really love this glass bottle decoupage project. I got this little glass bottle with one flat side and it suggested a wonderful decoupage idea to me.

As you may see, the bottle has Eifel tower on its front side. I used a very nice vintage type of napkin for this decoupage idea.

I have also made a small leather bow for the bottle and attached a short chain with a little silver key to it. So, now I got a nice French style and vintage looking vase made out of recycled glass bottle with decoupage on it.

 

Decoupage ideas: pretty handmade spring gifts for women


Here are few pretty spring gifts I made for the March 8 day. These are cute little handmade gifts for women and I used decoupage technique or paper to craft them.

This is another glass bottle decoupage idea. This bottle is not only decoupaged with pink wild roses, but I also used some yarn and beads to decorate it. I have also made two tiny rolled ribbon roses for it.

This set you may find in my Etsy store recycledcrafting. It’s a small vintage Soviet pan decoupaged with roses and adorned with old lace. It can be used as a wall decor item or as a photo frame. It is coupled by decoupaged and upcycled coffee can.

This is an orange foam plastic pin cushion decoupaged with napkin. I like the foam cushions more than I like fabric ones. It’s easier to stick the pins into it and they get better secured there. If you drop such a pin cushion, only few pins if any would fall out of it. It’s really easy to make, too. And it makes a great handmade gift.

I hope you enjoyed by decoupaged ideas and spring projects. You are welcome to leave a comment.

Decoupage ideas: pink rosebud glass bottle


This is another one of my decoupage bottle projects. I simply love nice bottles and it’s a pity to throw them away. Decoupage gives them new life and allows you to make treasures from the trash.

Another glass bottle decoupage project


The best thing about decoupage is its affordability. I’ve got a nice large olive oil bottle. Of course it’s been long since I used up all the original oil from it, but I still use it for my plant oil in the kitchen. As you may read it here keeping your plant oil in a plastic bottle is not a good idea. So, I always pour it into the glass one after I open it up.

 

I have already once decoupaged this bottle, but it got oily and messy over a time. So, I just decided to redo it.

I’ve this new nice napkin flower pattern and I have already used it to decoupage my old cabinet. I cleaned the bottle. I did not remove the old paint layers from it. I just rubbed some sandpaper on it to help the new paint get better adjusted to the bottle. And I removed the old grease using window cleaning spray.

 

Then I repainted the bottle and decoupaged it all anew. Now it looks of refreshed and nice once again.

Upcycling: plastic and glass bottle handmade lamp decoupage how to


I have already done several decoupaged bottles and one handmade lamp. Here is another handmade decoupaged lamp that did not cost me anything. And, it’s a nice upcylcing idea, as it helps to utilize plastic bottles.

Here is my glass bottle handmade lamp decoupage how to. I used glass wine bottle for the lamp stand. I have decoupaged it, as usual. Painted it and decoupaged with napkins. I used rose pattern to match my bedroom cabinets.

I used a large plastic bottle for the lamp shade. I also decoupaged it. First, I tried to paint it, but then apply a napkin. But it does not look good that way. So, I took up another plastic bottle and just decoupaged it all over with the rose napkin.

So, as you may see, glass bottle handmade lamp decoupage how to is simple.

A new glass bottle decoupage project. My friend likes the bottles, I make. So, I decided to make her one, too. Here it is:

glass bottle decoupage how to It used to be a green glass wine bottle. Most likely, she’d use it for sunflower oil, so this napkin suggested itself to me.

Here are some decoupage tips:

glass bottle decoupage how to That’s the first time I covered it with white paint. I had to repaint it at least 3 times.

Here is a decoupage tip #1: Apply some spirit based window cleaner to the bottle, after you wash it. This will remove all the fat off it. Then you paint would get stuck better to it.

When it dried up, I cut out my napkin pattern. Here is how I apply it to the bottle.

Decoupage how to tip #2: I apply transparent polish very sparingly to the bottle, then I apply the napkin. It does not get soaked up with the polish and does not wrinkle much.

When you adjust it nicely, put more polish on. I also polished it several times and put polish on the top of paint. That is a quick glass bottle decoupage how to.

I have already posted here about the unsafely of keeping your vegetable oil in plastic bottles. Here is another decoupage how to on decorating a glass bottle for storing your vegetable oil.

glass bottle decoupage how to:

The first step is to clean the bottle well. I washed it and left it to dry up. The next step on our decoupage how to is to paint the bottle. I used white acrylic paint and a green dye for it. I also used roller to apply the pain. I applied it twice.

Then I got a flower napkin.

A little tip here: instead of cutting out the flower pattern of the napking, I used my fingers to tear it off. This makes the flowers look more natural, when you apply them to the bottle. This way you decoupage looks more like a painting.

This is the front side of the bottle:

I applied the napkin to the bottle using transparent polish. First, I applied a thin layer of it onto the bottle, got the flower stuck to it. And, used more polished to get it applied to the bottle. When the first polish layer dried up, I covered up the entire bottle with the polish. This is my easy decoupage how to for a glass bottle.
