Altered tomato catch up bottle

Hello everyone
For those of you who love altering bottles like I do, I have some fun and easy techniques to share with you. I’ve created 3 altered bottles using a same technique on each bottle. These are i made for my uncle's housewarming party gift. I’ll (short)explain techniques I used.

Soak the bottles in water, and remove the labels
Once the bottles are clean and dry, instead of painting Gesso, i used masking tape to cover the bottle
Apply white glue on whole bottle and spread the glass beads
Use the gold & silver metallic spray paint on the bottle 
Decorate with solo wood flowers(use difft metallic colors), dry leaves, & lace 

This was great fun and I am so pleased to discover that the gem cluster glass beads can be altered so easily. I hope you like my altered bottle.

Thank you for joining today!
