Hi ya'll! I'm Ashley from How Do U Like Them Apples?
Needed Supplies: 1. Scrapbook paper of your choice-I used two prints, one for each layer of lable 2. Adhesive-I used the really sticky double sided tape for scrapbooking (with red backing) 3. Paper cutter or scissors 4. Sharpie or other type of marker 5. Pre-cut letters (optional)-letters can be hand drawn, traced from a stencil, printed from your computer, or use stickers 6. Glass bottles-mine are IBC bottles, but any bottles you have lying around will do, even bottles of different shapes and sizes would look nice together. I think an amber colored glass bottle would be great, too.
* Picked out the letters I needed to spell 'Thanks'
*Noticed that the colors of the letters did not suit my current project-
Here comes my black Sharpie to the rescue!
*Color the tops (and sides if needed) of your oddly colored letters.
Then see how your handy work looks on your scrapbook papers!
I put my letters on the paper before wrapping it around the bottles, but you can wait until the end to add your letters-whatever works best for you!
I used my new Thanks bottles for my Fall Mantle decor, but they were missing a little something :(What to do? I know! To use Thanks bottles for Mantle, I used:
1. Silk/faux flowers-in color(s) of your choice (I bought mine at Walmart for about $1 per bunch-I used two bunches)
2. Faux grass or other tall greenery (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby when their flowers were 50% off-I used one bunch, see bottom of picture)
3. Wire/Floral cutters-to cut your flowers apart and your stems to the correct size
I cut all my flowers apart, and the 'greenery' at the base of the bunch.
Then I added them to the glass bottles (see bottles in background of the picture on the right).
Now add your bottles (in the correct order, spelling does make a difference in this craft)
to the area you want to decorate.
Very festive-and perfect for Fall/Autumn/Thanksgiving!
Now, I know you are dying to see my mantle all finished for this month. Am I right?
Well, I guess I can do that, just for you!How Do U Like Them Apples? in the future. Come check out a few of my other projects like my New Hairstyle, flooring for my Woman Cave, our Master Bedroom Artwork & our little Sink Escapade.
