I love transparent glass bottles. Their see-through nature means they don't take up a lot of visual space and offer a myriad of possibilities when it comes to decorating them. Here is a quick tutorial on how I decorated this bottle.
I started with this lovely Japanese whisky bottle [which came back with me from a recent trip because it was just tooooooooo pretty! *winks*] and removed all the labels.
There are many ways to remove labels from bottles/jars but using a heat gun/hair dryer is one of the fastest and least messy ways. All you need to do is move your heat source over the labels which loosens the adhesive and the labels peel right off, without leaving any of the sticky residue behind.
Next I selected some pretty lace that would still allow me to see through the glass bottle...and adhered it with a hot glue gun. This is my choice of adhesive for this project because it dries fast and if you make a mistake like glue something on crooked, you, can just rip it off and start over again.
After that, I glued flat-back pearl strips (from Maya Road) along the top and bottom of the bottom.
Then it was time to audition embellishments for my bottle. I decided to keep to a neutral palette for classy look.
A cute resin bird tucked in under the bloom and resting on a leaf...
Stick pin leaves, pearls and bling for added texture and interest while keeping to the neutral colour palette.
I was so tempted to just keep adding embellishments at this point...*winks*
