Autumn Leaf Bottle Night Light

We decided to dress up one of our plain 1 liter recycled liquor bottles for the Fall season. We’ve always wanted to try glass frosting and this seemed like the perfect time to give it a whirl.

The frost reflects the cooler temperatures of the season with a combination of fall leaves and orange LED lights. Right now is a great time to pick up seasonal colored LED lights in orange and purple. Nick also grabbed some Fall leaf window clings and attached them to the bottle after drilling the hole in the back.

With the decals in place he stepped outside on our deck and evenly applied the Krylon Glass Frosting all around the bottle. After two coats we felt confident the bottle was adequately covered. We only had to wait about 20 minutes for the glass to dry and then simply peeled the window clings off the bottle to be used again some other time. To give the light string a little bit more volume we attached strips of orange and gold ribbons in between the lights. Now it was just a matter of inserting the light string through the back of the bottle.

In the meantime Silke grabbed a wine cork and began hot gluing the little pumpkin to the top of the cork and attaching layers of ribbons around it. She also added some Fall leaves and a little stick adornment to the cork.

Here is a picture of our finished Autumn Leaf Bottle Night Light:

We are going to experiment with other plain recycled glass bottles we have. We like the frosting effect, especially for the upcoming Holiday season. Nick is already looking for snow flake window clings. :)
