Decorating Vintage Bottles

You'd be surprised how fast this one was to make. Less than half an hour including digging through boxes of bits&pieces to make it. I printed the little baby tulip fairies from an old postcard onto tracing paper, then cut out the parts I like and painted the back with a small amount of glue and stuck it on the front. I took part of a Valentine wire garland, and a part of a white glitter garland to make a garland to put inside the bottle. Then I cut off pieces of a Christmas iced garland to drop inside. I rubbed on a little glitter glue in matching colors on the paper. And to top it off, I cut a small square of plain tracing paper and wrapped it around the top of the bottle with some red wire from the Valentine garland. As I made this one, I had better ideas for some other ones, all I need to do is remember where I put the boxes of old bottles :D The good thing is, if I find out that this bottle might be worth any money, all I have to do is soak off the paper label and dump out the contents! lol

It's adorable!! Love that little cherub face looking out like she's up to something!! Does bottle have markings on it? Sometimes there is a name on bottom! You'll have to put your bottles in a cigar box that you have labeled!! Jan
