Nick and I are settling in after our big move to South Carolina and are in the process of catching up with all the emails we received in the past couple of weeks. Thank you to all of our readers for being so patient with us.
In the next several days we will post all of the pictures we received in the order they were received in. We will start with Jackie and her beautifully decorated recycled wine bottles.
Jackie told us the following in her email:
“hi as in my other bottles and the flower vase i use thin mulberry paper, i use elmers glue with a small amount of water in it . i put glue on the bottle and then put the paper on it, then go over with more glue until it all got glue on it. just play around with the paper till i get it on. after it has dried spray clear coat over it. on these bottles i used water slide decals. let them set about 24 hours, then spray clear coat over the decals. on the horse paper i taped a sheet of the mulberry paper to other paper and put horse shoes saddles and horses on it, on the owls i put branches.”
Thank you Jackie for sending in more pictures and detailed descriptions on how to make these beauties.
