Upcycle a bottle using glitter

Well
I am back again.. this time I have a treat for those who always wants
to try something different.. Well to give you some background around
what do I mean by change is.. For those who know me and read my blog
regularly know that I have tried my hands on quiet a few stuff namely –
digital software to make cards , paper crafting, mixed media, altered
art… and now the latest gimmick is DIY.. Well I am a person who get
bored if asked to do the same work again and again for years and need a
constant change… Now I know that in professional and personal lives
that’s not possible (I just cant swap my family members or my bosses so
easily .. Not that I would 😀 ).. Hence I try to swap between hobbies,
so that everyone is happy ;).. Hence from past 1 month I have been
creating a lot of DIY projects which I plan to share with you guys and
hopefully inspire you like how I was inspired to try something different
and out of my comfort zone.. Before I even show the pics I want to
apologise for the quality of pics as they were taken from my phone.. And
the bottle is already gifted and I forgot to take the pics before
gifting the (Silly me 🙁 ).. So here is the final product –
Bottle1-4



Now on the supplies and how I did it along with some links to the ones who inspired me –
Upcycle a bottle using glitter 1So
first I got some empty bottles .. Since it was first time I was doing
anything with glass I had no glass color or anything handy with me (I am
a very impatient person and I could not wait to get started on the
project.. I literally started this one after coming home from office at
like 10 PM 😉 ).. 
Hence I got a colored bottle itself and just decided
to glitter it..
Supplies needed –
Empty bottle
Fevicol
Tape

Bottle1-1


Bottle1-2

I
covered my bottle with the tape wherever I did not want the glitter to
be stuck.. And then added fevicol to remaining areas.. Here is the pic
of me dumping glitter … YAY
Bottle1-3

Once
you have added glitter and removed the excess let the fevicol dry.. 
You may feel that this project would require a lot of glitter but that
wasn’t the case.. When I was completed with the bottle and I dumped the
excess back in I realized hardly any glitter was used and one bottle
would go long way..
So
once your bottle is dry, here comes the part to seal the bottle so that
glitter doesn’t stick to your hands.. I have used the Aerosol spray to
seal, you can use Modpodge for it as well but I have read that after
using mod podge u lose some of the shine and I did not want it… Now
you should’nt to inhale the fumes these sprays emit so please take your
project out in open space – a garden or a gallery like in my case and
then spray on the bottle evenly.. Please cover your face with mask while
doing it so you don’t inhale the fumes..
Once
the spray is dry touch the bottle and if needed spray it with another
round to seal the areas if any left.. And your project is done..
Honestly
I was never a big fan of glitters because they create a big mess.. but
after this project I seems to have gotten a knack of it and have created
many more projects using glitter which I would be sharing soon.. So
hope you guys had fun and enjoyed the post..
Here are the links where I got the idea from –
This
bottles would be perfect for a decorative item in your racks or can be
used as vases or you can even add a tealight and see the glitter work it
wonders 🙂 It would also be an awesome housewarming gift.. So go ahead and create you own set 🙂 .. 
 Ohh yes.. I have made a set of these for my own home.. Will share the pics soon 🙂

P.S
– Do you guys get bored after doing the same kind of crafting again and
again. I agree each product has its own individuality and its different
from the last one you make etc.. But do you guys get BORED :D.. and if
YES what other crafts do you try .. let me know as I would love to give
it a try too 😉
Happy Crafting
