Recycled Bottle.

The Doc does like his Bourbon whisky and some of the bottles are unusual shapes. Much to good to throw away in the bottle bank so I decided to make something useful with this one.
Either a Doorstop or a Bookend I thought.
An old serviette torn into pieces and some Mod podge soon  had the bottle covered.
A quick coat of match pot paint in Voilet White .
Once dried ready for the top sheets from the paper servettie.
 

This is the back of the finished bottle.
 The pattern on the serviettes was flowers and butterflies.
I gave the bottle a final coating of the violet white but watered down this time.

The front of the bottle with flowers, ribbons,  hessian, butterfly and pearls from stash.
I made this to show on  My Butterfly Challenge.

  23. These will make fab book ends!! Will it take long to get your hands on the new bottle though?? :)

  24. Gorgeous 'up-cycling' project! Thanks so much for participating in our Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge.

  25. I reckon the book ends are a safer option. I would be worried about using glass as door stops, with the risk of wind slammed doors at the moment. That finished one is so pretty. xx Maggie #15

  26. I love what you have done with the bottle and you are right it is too good a shape to waste.

  27. What a kick off for your butterfly challenge (which I'm hoping to create something this afternoon when I finish playing catchup!). Only a true crafter could see the possibilities in this bottle. We often get what I think is a 'nifty bottle', but I never can think what to do with it. You successfully created something beautiful with this one! Kudoes to you. TFS & Hugs.
