diy- a hostess gift idea!


A Hostess Gift Idea
  
I thought of this idea after I finished a bottle of juice and really liked the shape of the bottle.
Simple as that.
I thought it would make a cute vase and then when we were invited here for dinner I thought 'hostess gift!'
{In total, not including the wait time for the spray paint, I would say this project took me an hour to do.}

What you'll need:
1. glass bottle
2. spray paint
3. ribbon
4. needle and thread
5. flowers


 

1. Use spray paint and spray your bottle.
Your spray paint should have instructions for use if you've never used it before.
After your last coat, let it dry completely, about 1-2 hours.

After this step you can add flowers and that could be your hostess gift if you wanted but I added a bow to my bottle 1. to hide the ridges on the bottle and 2. to make the bottle look prettier.
So.


2.  Get some ribbon, with a width that will cover the ridges found on the top of the bottle.
Wrap it around tight and sew it shut, as close to the bottle as you can get.
You can also use a hot glue gun or fabric glue, this is just what I used.

3. To cover the section you sewed and to make the bottle prettier you can add a bow.
I simply made a dior bow and then sewed that onto the bottle.

4. Add flowers

And tada!
I think I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself. :)

Cheers!!
