Create a mini-studio for painting While the bottles are dry, there is time to build a mini-studio for painting - it takes less than a minute.
Decorating a Vase All that happened before is only preparation, and now the real creative process of creating a vase begins. Follow these guidelines to properly stick tissue paper:
Tips and advice TIP number 1: Handling paper should be very careful - it is very thin and is easily torn. You also can’t be too slow: if the glue dries, a piece of paper will stick and may tear when you try to smooth it out. TIP number 2: Until the paper is completely dry, it may appear wrinkled. However, the small folds will dry out after drying, so do not try to achieve a perfectly smooth surface. TIP number 3: If you want to stick the paper around the neck, be prepared that in this place it will lie unevenly, and even after drying the surface will wrinkle. For the same reason, you should not use bottles of complex shapes for decoration in this technique.

Master class number 3: whatnot from the bottle
Breathe in a second life in used glassbottles or glasses can be, not only turning them into a vase. This master class will help you to build an unusual structure made of wood, bottles and paints - a bookcase with vases. For future vases, it is advisable to find small identical bottles - small bouquets or single flowers will look particularly impressive in them. Materials and tools you need to prepare:
- 3 round wooden slats 7, 14 and 15 cm long, the diameter of all - 25 mm;
- 10 small bottles of beautiful shape;
- 3 round wooden boards with a diameter of 20, 23 and 25 cm;
- fine sandpaper;
- acrylic paints (the choice of color is yours);
- hole saw on wood with a diameter of 35 mm;
- glue for wood;
- tape measure and pencil.
Operating procedure The largest board diameterwhich is equal to 25 cm, will serve as the basis of the stack. It is necessary to place 6 bottles on it. Arrange them at an equal distance from each other, departing from the edge of 1.5 cm.
The diameter of the holes will be somewhat larger than that of the necks, this is necessary so that you can freely remove the bottles, change the water in them, wash them. Place this board on the bottles so thattheir necks got into the holes made. Now place the remaining 4 bottles on the second board, also keeping an equal distance between them. Place the third board on top. Circle the contours of the bottles on its bottom side, make holes.
- Disassemble the design, determine the center of all three boards.
- Glue round rails there.
- For the largest board, take a rail with a length of 15 cm, for the second - 14 cm, and the third - 7 cm.
Now the bookcase can be painted. For the shelf shown in the photo, three different shades of gray paint were used. When all parts are dry, insert bottles filled with water into the holes and place flowers in them.
Master class number 4: Hand painted bottles
If you have accumulated a few bottles thatsorry to throw, you can turn them into vases with a unique pattern. Work does not require the use of strongly smelling aerosol paints, so it can be done even at home. Tools and materials you will need:
- glass bottles;
- acrylic paints;
- brushes or kitchen sponge;
- adhesive tape;
- pen for painting on glass;
- glass primer or sandpaper.
How to draw even stripes TIP! Use a little trick to draw even stripes. Using a tape measure, mark a few points on the wall of the bottle, and then connect them by drawing a straight line and glue tape along it. Now you can paint: the lines will have a clear outline, and the paint will not enter the neighboring areas.
- Remember that after applying the paint will take time to dry. Only then can you start painting the next section.
- Prepare the paint, divide with the help of adhesive tape the area on which you will work (if the drawing has no background, but consists of various elements).
