|Empy Badam milk bottle|
On drying, I painted the bottles, one in deep blue and the other in black color. I used poster colors for coloring the glass bottles for an earthen look. On drying, I used synthetic clay mold for embossing. I made small flower petals of different shapes and colors and embossed these in flower shapes on the painted glass bottle. I used fevicol for embossing the flowers, if you simply paste the wet clay on the bottle, it drops off on drying. So better to stick these with fevicol.
In the center of each flower, I pasted a kundan i.e rhinestone. This gave a natural / shiny look to the embossed clay flowers. Also embossed few leaf shaped clay in green color. Finally for a glittering look, I pasted small kundan of contrast color in curved designs.
That's it. Here in the above pic, you can see the dark blue bottle with embossed clay flowers and leaves with rhinestone in curved design. I made a small / single paper flower in red color and placed it inside the vase. My 6 year old daughter liked it very much and placed it on the corner table in her room with a Halloween pumpkin beside it. It looks great.
The other waste lassi / badam milk bottle which is painted in black with embossed colorful clay flowers and rhinestones design in curve line. I placed it on the other corner table and placed a brass lamp beside it for an ethnic look.
Doesn't these flower vases made of waste glass bottles look good? I really enjoyed doing these and few more of my craft work to come up in my next posts.
But be careful with the kids and small children, if you happen to recycle glass bottles into flower vases. Keep such glass decorative vases out of reach of children. Keep these at a height, so that children / kids cannot reach out to such a height.
