Firstly find some old wine bottles or jars in your recycling (i'm sure, like me, you have loads lol), then you'll need to make sure the glass is clean and dry before you start to paint them.
I usually go for a few different colours but do the same style on them to go with a room etc, once chosen you are ready to Paint!
Apply your first coat on very thinly to insure you've covered every little part of the bottle/jar and put to one side as they'll need to be left for 24 hours to dry. After the allotted amount of time apply your second coat and leave to dry. Once dry you can go ahead and wax them with any Annie Sloan soft wax of your choice and that's them done ready to add a pretty bow or string.
If you prefer a more patterned effect you could decoupage your bottles or stencil them according to your preference, to do these effects please do not wax your bottles first, you'll need them painted and dry.
To decoupage you'll need Annie Sloan Decoupage medium, a small flat brush and and image on a napkin or very thin paper (sometimes you can get away with wallpaper on the bottles and jars). Apply the decoupage medium to the item but try to stay in the space where the image would go, then place the image down pressing firmly and ensuring no creases or air bubbles are on it then apply a coat of decoupage medium on the top of this and leave to dry. Once dry you can either wax or lacquer the bottles and jars according to preference and.........voila they're done ready for candles, storage or flowers etc.
Now go and give it a go yourselves, i just love making these!!
