Altered Bottle

Hello Everyone!

Came up with yet another Holiday project!! Hope you people will like it.

An altered glass bottle!

I have loads of things piled up in my so-called "to do" list. Piled for quite sometime now. 

Nothing in my house will ever make it to the dustbin/scraps i guess. 

Having said so I have been piling up these small glass bottles for many many days (or is it years......considering the no of bottles with me...??....) now :-D

In India, we get flavored milk in these bottles. So after every dose of milk, the bottles are cleaned and stashed up for some form of repurpose. 

Finally i could bring myself up to refurbish these two lucky bottles.
Now they are as good as new....

The bottles are covered with a decoupage paper having red roses. The top I wanted to cover with some form of cords...I always find, covering the top with a paper, little bit tedious...what with the tapering shape. 
Cords are easier ... :-D

In one I have used the paper strings and jute thread for the other. Both of them give different looks. The paper strings giving a more polished look as the jute gives a more rustic look. 

On the jute one I added some decorations like the feathers (red , green xmas colors) , some flowers, a set of bells tied with twine (Christmas season is incompete with bells... ;-) ) and a butterfly!

On the second one, I added different types of flowers, a Holly leaf with cherries, a set of bells tied around with a twine and a little sentiment of "happy holidays" !

TADAAA......There its done!!
It can now be used for displaying some articial flowers... I want to try putting an LED inside to illuminate a corner ... can also be used as it is as a Display piece... what say??

It actuallly didn't take all that long to refurbish the bottles...  
Hopefully the beautification of all my bottles will happen soon.. ;-)

New year resolution.....hahahah...

Hopefully you guys like my Altered creation of the bottle.
