Today’s little project is a fun one since everyone has empty bottles just lying about in the house.
So why not give them a super colorful and bright Makeover.
I chose to use Tissue Paper but you can use pretty much anything Newspaper, Magazine, Wrapping Paper even Fabric etc.
The main ingredient is GLUE, that is the only crucial factor in this project.
I chose a number of different colored tissue paper, mainly Orange, Pink, Blue and Yellow.
All I did was fold the sheet of tissue paper a few times then cut an almost “Leaf” shape out of it and you should have quite a few of the leaf shapes.
You don’t have to cut any of the leaf individually or else it will take FOREVER to complete this project.
My Decoupage glue of choice was Mod Podge and I chose the Matte Finish on this project.
I prefer to pour the glue onto a Paper plate and use a Foam Brush while I Decoupage.
I recently gave my Gold Accent Table the same Decoupage treatment. you should hop on over and see how it looks now.
So I applied a thin layer of the Mod Podge and in no particular order one by one placed the leaves on top.
I placed one column of the leaves and fanned out the rest on to the side.
You can play around with the colors and placements.
I even let the leaves overlap each other.
The last step, when the entire bottles are covered with the colored tissue paper, apply another thin coat of the Mod Podge on top so to completely seal it in.
I did the same thing on the other bottle and let it completely dry, I gave it an entire day.
And that was it.
What do you guys think?
You could use these for holding your pens, pencils, makeup brushes or even just for decoration.
Such a simple and quick idea.
