Other supplies

  • sandpaper (fine-grit)
  • glass bottles (new or vintage, in any size or shape) (mine range 5.5"-7.5" high)
  • 3/4" oval brush (soft)
  • white pencil
  • wooden skewer (as many as needed)
  • small flat brush
  • rubbing alcohol (optional)
  • brown craft paper
  • wooden slice (10" x 18" oval)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Lightly sand the surface of the wooden slice. Using the quilt pattern provided, trace or draw onto the surface using a white-colored pencil.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Make sure the bottles are clean. Wiping down the glass surfaces with rubbing alcohol removes oil and dirt.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Decide where you want the colors to be placed on the wooden oval. Using a small flat brush, fill in the areas with Santa Red, Snow White, Bahama Blue, Moody Blue, Cactus Flower, and Cobblestone.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint one color at a time to minimize the chance of mixing colors. Let dry.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Paint a second coat as needed. Let dry completely. Apply Soft-Touch Varnish for a durable finish.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Mix Grey with Dijon 4:1 and paint onto three of the glass bottles using a large oval brush. Mix Turquoise and Mint 1:1 for the final bottle. Allow to dry. Paint with a second coat.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Cut different shapes from brown craft paper.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Accordion fold the craft paper, varying the size of the folds.
    Step 7 Example
  9. See photo: Some of the edges will taper to give the look of a dried palm frond.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Cut some edges of the folded paper to give a different look. (The fun of the shapes is in the experimenting.) Once you have a shape you like, use hot glue to hold the center. (I covered a wooden skewer with the craft paper as well and glued the folded pieces to the end.) Use these folded paper shapes to fill the painted bottles.
