Hello there folks, I am back with yet another post for this month and would like to link it up to a couple of challenges before time is up ;)

I have been contemplating upcycling some item at home and my eyes fell on a couple of wine bottles lying around for quite a bit of time. Here is what I did, of course with a lot of inspiration from the internet, pinterest to be precise. For the first bottle, I used the hemp/jute yarn that we can commonly find at home. Added a few handmade felt flowers and voila, there you have a very elegant looking upcycled wine bottle. For the second bottle, although I am not very satisfied with the result. thanks to my shaking hand... I just painted the bottle with blue paint and tried some patterns with white and topped it with silver glitter. It looks ok from far but I am not so happy as the first one... anyway it has been upcycled as well.. just have to find a corner for it heheh

There was one more bottle I found and with some black acrylic colour and used glitter over a scallop shape stencil that I made myself. The bottle lid was a silver colour so I used the silver glitter...Here are some photos...

So let me know what you think..
