Master class number 1: Color vase from the bottle

Where to put an old bottle of wine? Using paints and tissue paper with a beautiful pattern, you can turn it into an original vase. The process of work itself is quite simple, even a novice in the decoupage business will cope with the task. Materials and tools Required:

  • empty glass bottles;
  • a bucket of hot water;
  • a cup of soda;
  • alcohol;
  • a can of white enamel paint;
  • sponge brush;
  • decoupage glue;
  • gloves;
  • tissue paper of different colors.

In order not to stain the house, it is worth doing alsospecial device for bottle spray painting. It has a very simple design and consists of only 2 things: medium-sized boxes and disposable plates. For additional protection of surfaces, you can take an unnecessary rag or newspaper to lay them where you will work with paint. How to remove the label from the bottle

  • Dissolve a cup of soda in a bucket of hot water,place the bottles there. Make sure they are filled with water inside. Otherwise they will float, and the label in some places will not get wet. Leave the dishes for half an hour.
  • After this period, remove the bottles and removeswollen label and traces of glue from the walls. You can use a sharp object to scrape off difficult pieces. Perhaps the first time you remove the label completely you will not leave, then put the bottle back in the water for another half an hour and try again.
  • Now you need to dry the cleaned containers. After wetting the napkin with alcohol and wipe all surfaces of the bottle. This step is necessary to paint better lay on the glass. In addition, if small imperceptible particles of paper and glue remain on the surface, they will become visible.
  • 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.

  • The box must be opened and put a short side down, put a disposable plate inside.
  • Put the bottle prepared for painting right on the plate, put on gloves and, after shaking the spray can, start painting. Turn the plate to color the other sides of the bottle.
  • When the first bottle is finished,Take a plate with a container standing on it, move it to where it will dry. So each future vase will have its own stand, and the table surface will not get dirty.
  • Look in the instructions for the paint, what time is itrequired in order to completely dry. This is usually about 24 hours. Please note that the process may take a little longer during the rainy and cold season.
  • 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:

  • Place selected sheets of paper into pieces of various sizes and shapes.
  • Attach them to the bottle, try on and see,how and in what combination it is better to stick them. By the way, the paper can stick and overlap, this technique will help to achieve an interesting effect, reminiscent of drawing with watercolor.
  • Choose the piece you want to stick first. Sponge brush apply a thin layer of glue for decoupage on the part of the bottle where you planned to glue this paper.
  • Gently attach one edge of the paper to the glass andstick the whole piece with soft movements. Try to smooth it out. Check that the edges are snug against the surface of the bottle. If they have moved away somewhere, apply a little more glue with a brush and hold down the paper.
  • Now you need to cover the glued sheet with glue on top. In the process, it will be possible to smooth all wrinkles, if any.
  • In the same way, glue all the other pieces of paper, arranging them the way you want.
  • At the final stage, you need to apply another layer of glue, and then with a napkin, carefully, so as not to move and damage the paper, remove its excess.
  • Allow the bottles to dry. Drying time depends on glue brand, it is indicated on the package.
  • If desired, you can use the upper pearlescent coating. Apply it after the glue dries.
  • 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.

    Workshop number 2: Vase with stickers

    The triangles are quite old, but stillactual topic in the decoration. I use them for decoration of furniture, dishes and other interior items. Decorating a bottle or other container with triangles is very simple, and the products will look spectacular. Try to turn an ordinary bottle into an original vase with geometric patterns. Materials and tools For work, prepare:

    • glass bottles;
    • white paint (spray or normal);
    • scissors;
    • black self-adhesive paper;
    • emery paper or glass primer.

    Operating procedure

  • First you need to clean the bottle - wash it insideand outside, peel off label residues. To facilitate the process, you can pre-soak the bottles in hot soda solution so that the paper is soaked.
  • After that, dry the cleaned containers.
  • Before you start painting, process the glass - it is necessary that the paint lies flat on the surface and firmly held on it.
  • To do this, use one of two options: sand the outer walls of the bottle with sandpaper or coat the surface of the bottle from the neck to the bottom with a primer (any kind of primer is suitable - liquid, spray or varnish).
  • While the bottles are dry, cut out black paper.triangles. Their size and quantity will depend on the size of the containers to be decorated and which particular drawing you plan to complete. However, all triangles must be the same. It is most convenient to cut one first, and then use it as a stencil for all subsequent ones.
  • Decide exactly how you want to decorate the bottle. Then you can proceed to gluing triangles in accordance with the plan. Attach the paper to the glass carefully so that it fits snugly to the surface and does not form wrinkles.
  • That's all, the product is ready. For the next bottle, if you decide to decorate several containers with triangles, you can come up with another pattern for sticking decorative elements, or you can make all the vases in the same style.

    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.

  • On this design, put the second board (diameter 23 cm). Now in the places where the bottlenecks are in contact with the underside of the second board, make a mark (circle the contours of the neck with a pencil).
  • Remove this board, lay it up with the side where the marks are made. Drill holes in the indicated locations using a circular saw.
  • 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.

    Operating procedure

  • Carefully wash the bottles inside and out, remove the label from them, and dry.
  • Since glass is a fairly slippery material, the surface should be prepared before applying the paint. Cover the walls with a primer or sand them with sandpaper.
  • Now you have to come up with a picture that will decorate the future vase. If you don't brush too well, you can draw simple lines or stripes.
  • 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).

  • The most convenient way to paint a foam sponge. For small areas, you can cut into thin strips or use a sponge brush. From the usual brush on the glass may remain traces of smears.
  • While the paint has not dried out, it may not look very smooth, traces of the sponge pores remain on the surface, but after drying, all the flaws will disappear.
  • The first strokes after dipping the sponge into the paint should be applied as far as possible from the border of the adjacent areas, since the paint can drain on them.
  • If the first layer is not enough to get a bright and even coating, you should apply the second one. When the first section dries, go to the second, then the third, and so on.
  • When the drawing is finished and all the paint is completely dry, you can draw small details with a pen for painting glass.
