Altered Bottle

Hi All :)
I hope this post finds you well and doing what makes you happy!
Today I am posting my first altered bottle.  I joined a swap and I'm anxious since I had no clue what I was doing LOL!  The theme was fairies and we had to add bling, lace, trim a charm and tag.  I haven't made the tag yet. I wanted to show you all the bottle so you can tell me if I need to make another one. 

The charm is an old earring and the moon was a brooch.  My mom and I stood in an antique store for over an hour (in Florida with no air conditioning) looking through costume jewelry to find these treasures.  I have a ton of jewelry to use for different projects.  Well I digress (LOL).  Back to the bottle.  The black trim with the beads I found at an Estate Sale.  The bling I bought from The first bottle I made I put paper all over it and sprayed it with mists but it didn't match the fairy picture so my niece, Birda, came over and she made her own bottle with it.

I'm happy with the way they turned out but I would like your opinions so leave me a comment and let me know please.
Thank you:)


  1. Oh wow Dawn this is creative. My favourite is definitely the first one with the gorgeous neon green. Its also a great gift idea filled with liquid hand soap or bath crystals.
