So~ I did some crafting with out of the many sake bottles that had collected over the last several months. My first craft with the bottles was a simple white painted bottle that I added twine around.
supplies I used:
Rust-oleum flat white primer ($3.75)
Wine (or in my case sake bottles) free
twine (size/thickness of your choice) I used a thicker twine because I used 60oz bottles (2.99 spool)
glue gun (always on hand)
decoration of choice. (set of 6 snowflakes from Michaels- $1.00)
After removing my labels, I sprayed my bottles with the white primer. (did not photograph that step because no one was here to help me!) The primer gave me the matte look I hoped to acquire, if you prefer a gloss definitely use it! just keep in mind to use a quality spray paint. You would be surprised at the difference in how it sprays!
After my bottles were dried, I added the twine, gluing every few turns to ensure the twine was even and wrapped tight at I wrapped it around the bottle. I original only did the bottles with twine and then decided it needed something else so...
I added the snowflakes after seeing the bottles on the mantle..
Here is a close up of my painted bottles!
And below~ the final product with my handmade paper wreath~
