Hi there, how was your weekend? My Saturday was a bit crazy since we had our boys’ birthday party (I’ll share some pictures later this week), and then Sunday I had some “me time” to visit my booth and also do a little DIYing. Last week I picked up the April issue of All You Magazine while I was shopping at Meijer and inside found some Easter eggs that had decoupaged flowers on them. They were SO pretty, and they inspired my project today.
I wanted to do a similar project but I wanted mine to last through spring and not just Easter, so I subbed the eggs for some glass bottles. I planned to buy empty vases or carafes, but didn’t see any I liked- and they were more than I wanted to pay anyway. Then I happened to walk through the ethnic food aisle and found these perfect glass bottles for less than $1 each!
I emptied the bottles and removed the labels.
Then I bought some cardstock cutouts from the craft store ($5.99 – 40% off coupon = $3.59, and I have a LOT left over) and gathered my Mod Podge and a decoupage brush.
I dumped out the cutouts and rearranged them about a dozen times, and then glued them to the bottles with a light brush of Mod Podge on the back.
These lovely decoupaged bottles are perfect for spring! (Can you tell which way the wind was blowing? Ha!)
I put a stem of faux flowers in each because the bottles really shouldn’t get wet.
What inspires you to make crafts and decor for spring?
