Wedding Decor bottles

To obtain the original bottles "groom" and "bride" we need:

  • two bottles of champagne;
  • Satin ribbon color champagne 5 cm -?2 meters;
  • Satin ribbon color champagne 2.5 cm - 3 meters;
  • pink satin ribbon 0.8 cm - 1 meter;
  • gray satin ribbon 5 cm - 2 meters;
  • gray satin ribbon 2,5 cm - 3 meters;
  • gray satin ribbon 1 cm - 0.5 meters;
  • tulle white and cream;
  • rhinestones, beads;
  • needle and thread;
  • scissors;
  • glue gun.

To start with a bottle of champagne, you need to remove all labels. It is much easier to do this if you firstly soak the bottles in water for an hour.

Let's start work with the bottle of "Bride".She will be wearing a champagne dress. To create a dress corset, wrap a ribbon of champagne with a width of 2.5 cm around the neck of the bottle, as shown in the photo. Measure out the required size, cut off a piece of tape and glue it to the bottle.

Next, make about eight similar turns so that each successive layer is halfway over the previous one. Each time, measure the tape again, as the bottle from the neck to the middle expands. Make sure that the corners of the tape connection pass along one line, for this purpose, using a piece of soap, you can draw an even line on the glass.

Adding photo tapes

When you get to the extended portion of the bottle, take a tape of the same color, 5 cm wide. Glue one edge of it to the bottle and the maximum pulling, wrap it in a spiral around the bottle, a little going to the previous turn. At the very bottom, fix the edge of the tape with glue.

Now from the tulle we will make the hem of the skirt. Cut off the white and cream tulle along a piece 1 meter long and 15 cm wide, fold them together, pass along the edge with a notch and draw the canvas. Get the resulting skirt on the line connecting the ribbons on the bottle. Try to overlap each other's edges.

Next, turn to decorating the bride's dress. The seam along the perimeter of the hem of the skirt can easily be hidden with the help of small ribbons made of pink ribbon. At the neck, glue a necklace of beads or rhinestones. And the cork can be decorated with a veil from a piece of tulle or wrap it with a ribbon with a small neat rose.

Let's move on to the "groom".The design of this bottle begins in a similar way - from a ribbon of champagne color 2.5 cm wide, make three turns at the neck of the bottle. Further six more such turns, but already from a gray tape.

Now measure a piece of gray tape from the place where the light shirt to the bottom of the bottle ends and paste one edge of it as shown in the photo. In the future, it will hide the place of joining the tapes.

Take a gray ribbon 5 cm wide, cut it into pieces equal to the girth of the bottle and glue them on a bottle with a small overlap. The resulting seam is covered with a vertical piece of tape that you glued in the previous step.

The shirt of the "groom" can be decorated with a tie or a butterfly from a pink ribbon. As a button on the tailcoat, you can paste small beads. And do not forget the hat and buttonhole.

Cut the kraft paper into small pieces and lower it into the bowl with water. Then, squeeze the paper and immerse it in the bowl with PVA glue, again wring out the paper and gently stick it on the bottle.

When sticking, do not stretch the paper, and specifically form wrinkles. Cover the entire top of the craft and the cap with paper, leave it to dry for a while. If desired, you can dry the product with a hairdryer.

Use a glue gun to glue the string, wrapping the glass pebbles, the connecting seam between the shell and the paper, as well as decorating the lid, the neck and the bottom of the bottle. Do rope patterns on your own.

We took a bottle of brandy "Shabo" for work. Beforehand, you need to wash it well and get rid of all the labels. Then the bottle should be degreased with alcohol or acetone. After this, you can proceed to the application of the substrate. Using foam rubber, apply a white acrylic paint to the surface of the bottle with patting movements.

Allow the first layer of paint to dry, then apply a second coat over it and allow it to dry completely. At this time, cut out the desired pattern from the napkin and separate its top layer.

Attach the pattern to the bottle and cover it with PVA glue, applying glue brush from the center of the picture to the edges.

Spread the bottom side of the bottle with PVA glue and lower it into semolina. Leave it for a while, so that the manga sticks well.

Now we return to the design of the front side of the product. Color the blue part of the background, creating the illusion of the sea. For a realistic picture, you can click on the picture to paint.

With the help of a thick gypsum mixture, make the effect of volume waves. Place gypsum gently with a flat stick.

On the neck of the bottle, glue the double-sided adhesive tape around the perimeter and wrap it with a string. Do this in two stages, first wrap the neck to half, tie a knot and leave two long tails on the side of the bottle. And then wrap the neck from the middle to the top, also leaving a bundle with two tails, but already on the opposite side of the bottle.

To the left edges of the twine on the superglue, glue the shells, pre-painted in pearl color.

At the end 2-3 times, cover the finished product with acrylic lacquer, this will allow it to retain its brightness and decorativeness for a long time.

Application of glycerin

An ideal gift for a woman at all times was considered to be flowers, especially those that for quite some time can please the eye with their flowering. Therefore, an excellent and original way for a long time to save and capture the flowering of your favorite plants is considered to be conservation in glycerin. Flowers, preserved on this principle, will not lose their beauty, elasticity and flexibility, but at the same time they will not require special care.

Glycerin, penetrating into plant cells, has the property of sucking their fluid and replacing moisture evaporating from stems and leaves.

Depending on the type of plant and its size, it may take from 3 weeks to 2 months for full canning. Conservation of individual leaves usually takes 2-3 weeks.

To prepare the solution, mix 1/3 of glycerin with 2/3 of hot water.

To conserve the plant in glycerin, the stem needs to be trimmed along the oblique, then clean it at a level of 10 cm, removing the lower leaves or bark so that the solution can penetrate without problems. After this, it is necessary to choose a deep vessel, fill it with 7-8 cm solution and immerse in it the prepared stems for impregnation with glycerin. The level of solution in the vessel must be maintained continuously throughout the period, adding it as it is spent. As soon as the plants cease to be saturated with glycerin, they can be transferred to a beautiful decorative container, filled with a new solution of glycerin and finally conserved.

All plants are carefully prepared for the conservation procedure. For example, young foliage for canning in glycerin is not suitable. Evergreen plants can be preserved at any time of the year, while deciduous plants are cut for this procedure only in the middle of summer. All the harvested material is sorted into categories, as all plants react differently to glycerin and can change their color. Remember, preservation in glycerin guarantees only the preservation of the form, but not the color.

So that plants do not lose their natural color, you can feed them with artificial water-soluble dyes, mixing them in a solution of glycerin. But the most important thing is to take into account the individual characteristics of each flower and not be afraid to experiment. If you can not keep natural colors, then you can come to the rescue of acrylic and oily dyes, silver, zelenka, colored transparent varnishes.

If it suddenly happens that white spots form on the conserved plant, then the bleaching solution will help to fix the situation:

  • water - 0.5 liters;
  • denatured alcohol - 160 ml;
  • acetone - 160 ml;
  • oxalic acid - 50 grams;
  • acetic acid 99% - 10 grams;
  • sodium bisulfate - 120 grams.

It is necessary to keep the plant in this solution for about two days.

Application of colored sand

A bottle with a similar bright filling is sure to be an unforgettable gift by March 8, and such a decor will always give a sunny mood.

To create a craft, you will need:

  • small transparent jars or bottles with lids;
  • fine salt;
  • colored crayons;
  • sheets of white paper.

Remove all labels from the bottles.

Put a little crumbly salt on a sheet of paper.

Take the chalk of the desired color and start rolling it over the salt. Gradually the salt will begin to color in the color of the chalk.

The resulting colored salt is poured into the jars one color over the other. The main thing, do not shake the container, so that the sand does not mix, and lay down in layers.
