Howdy everyone!! You may know we host a month long Creative Challenge upcycle craft link party (if you didn’t you do now!). Each month there are so many awesome upcycled crafts shared and we get so excited and inspired!!
Back in April we upcycled paper bags (brown paper) and Diana @ Adirondack Girl shared this:
I love it!! I want it!!
And I had this oj bottle I had wanted to upcycle for awhile so thought I would give it a try!
The labels wouldn’t come off so I added a few coats of primer but left the cap the pretty orange. I picked a thrifted doll pattern to use to cover my bottle. I cut out a few pieces, balled them up and…..
The crinkling paper noise brought in the treat monger, Macy. She hung around a bit just in case there really was some treats that might fall to the floor. Such a sweet little face! Such hungry eyes!! Mom I am starving!!
Back to the crafting! I used mod podge and smeared (techy) it all over the bottle and then smooshed (more tech) the pattern on, wrapping it all around the bottle to include the bottom.
Then using another bottle to support my oj mannequin to be, I covered the whole thing in more mod podge and let dry.
I was thinking I might need a clear coat but man looks good and it’s shiny too!
I love it – I know not really manikin shaped nor does it look like Diana’s but I love it! I am just leaving as is for now but it could hold flowers or sewing supplies or other surprises in there in the future!
Have you upcycled anything lately? if so, stop by our craft party on Fridays! If not, stop by and get inspired!
Thanks for crafting with us today! Millie
