I always keep glass bottles be it from a pasta sauce bottle or jam etc as they make for such adorable Vases, Centerpieces, or even Pencil or Makeup Brushes Holder.

Materials Needed for Tissue Paper Decoupaged Bottles
Tutorial for Colored Tissue Paper Decoupaged Bottles
I chose to use colored tissue paper for this project but you could use anything be it a magazine, wrapping paper of your choice, fabric, or one of my colorful digital prints from my shop.
Either way, it will turn out Great!
I chose four 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 Oval shape almost like a “Leaf” shape out of the paper. Since you would have folded the tissue paper you should have quite a few leaf cutouts at one time.
I used an empty pasta sauce bottle I had on hand you could use an actual empty Vase like the one I used in this Anthropologie Inspired Vase or an empty lemonade bottle etc.
My Decoupage glue of choice was Mod Podge and I chose the Matte Finish on this project.
You could also thin down any liquid glue with some water you have on hand for 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 from here, it is basically how you would like the design and color scheme to turn out.
I wanted my bottles to be really colorful so I used all the tissue paper colors at once.
I applied a thin layer of the Decoupage glue onto one side of the bottle the leaves on top one by one.
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. But continue to apply the Glue and place the leaves until it is fully covered.
It didn’t take me that long and is actually a great activity to do with your kids.
When the entire bottle was covered with the colored tissue paper, apply another generous coat of the decoupage glue on all around the bottle to seal everything.
I did the same thing on the other bottle and let it completely dry, I gave it an entire day.
And that was it. How quick and easy was this project?
What do you guys think?
You could use these for holding your pens, pencils, makeup brushes or even just for decoration.
Such a burst of color in any room.
