Spooky Wine Bottles

For my October workshop we made these super spooky cute wine bottles.  This was also my donation item to the Operation Smile Auction at Leadershare.

  •  The bottles were spray painted in black flat paint.
  • the wraps around the bottle are Kraft paper, but into strips and while sprinkled wet with water, krinkled repeatedly (let dry overnight)
  • The paper rosettes were scored every 3/16's and were done on 11x2.5" papers.
  • For added depth the area around the skull was sponged with Grey flannel to make the white pop.  
  • The skull also is painted over in our clear gel sparkle (allow to dry min. 1 hr)
  • Finishing touches included, large rhinestone added to eye and on the neck of the bottle.  Ribbon tied around wrap
  • Assembled to the bottle using hot glue
Project greatly inspired (and rosettes learned from) Corina Mitchell.
