Welcome to our blog!
See what's brewing!
Earlier this week, I shared with you how to make your own Mod Podge & this was the project that I needed to use it for.
I needed something to throw my allergy pills in since I've officially given into my allergies & decided to start taking the pills again. My sister gave me a old prescription bottle she found while cleaning her drawers & told me just to use this.
What's great about this is that it's small enough that I can throw in my purse (I have a small purse, I can't handle losing things in a large bag) and it holds quite a bit of my allergy pills.
But I wanted to make it look cute & that I did!
This was a super easy & quick craft! It take under 30 minutes from start to finish! The only downside, is you have to wait for it all to dry before you can use it, so don't plan on using it right away.
All you need is your bottle, Mod Podge, a paint brush, paper, scissors & a pen.
Take your bottle & remove the stickers- the nice thing about this is they peel right off!
Next, cut your paper. I grabbed a few scrapbooking scraps I had & chose the one that was the closest to the size of the bottle. You'll need a strip that is about 3 inches wide & 4.5 inches long.
Put Mod Podge on the bottle & slowly add the paper. Use your fingers to rub out any bumps or bubbles- you might have to go around the bottle doing this more than once.
Make sure to add a thin layer of Mod Podge to the ends of the paper where they meet too so they can be bonded.
When you're done with that, add a layer of the Mod Podge to the outter layer of the bottle. Once it's securely on, set it aside so it can start drying!
Next, take the top of the bottle & trace it on a piece of paper.
Cut on the inner line and make necessary trims if you need to so that it can be glued right onto the top of the bottle.
Then cut out a strip that you can wrap around the top - this will be roughly .5 inch high and about 5.75 inches long. Your measurements might be different based on the size of the bottle you're using.
First, glue on the top piece but don't add a layer of glue to the top of the paper quite yet. I put glue on mine first (as you can see by the shine in the picture) but I ended up getting a lot of glue on my hands as I was adding the long strip to the top. So I suggest do add your top coat of glue when you're totally done!
Then, wrap around the the long strip to the side- you'll have to work out the bumps and bubbles as you did with the bottle. Once that's on, you can add your top layer of glue & let it out to dry!
I suggest waiting until both pieces are totally dry before you put the top onto the bottle.
