I'm a mother to two beautiful mini Moon's,
 engaged to my very best friend, craft
addict, pixel lover, upcycling junkie and a
 DIY trial and error chef in my own world!!
I love indulging in creative outlets from
crafting to enhancing our home over the
season's and creating unique items for my children.
I craft for cause and totally light up at any opportunity to help bring awareness where needed to various issues close to my heart.  I will LOVE to get to know you all and an opportunity to indulge in more future blog shenanigans sometime.. Hope you can all stop in and say hello..

I came across this beautiful burlap lace dressed up bottle that TOTALLY inspired my
featured item here today.. Hope you enjoy.. I had fun playing dress up.. Join in...

This dress up was FUN and very easy..I Love the way the bottle turned out.. I think
it'll be great to bottle up wine or some sort of fun cocktail for a nice spring picnic..
*What YOU Need*
Fabric Of Choice (Strip)
Lace Strip
Glue
Rope (I used a natural twine/rope with metal rod in it)
....................................................
*Lets Play Dress Up*
To begin, I cut a strip of the cloth I wanted and measured it up to where I wanted to 
fit the bottle. I glued the fabric to the bottle carefully. Afterwards, I did the same with the 
lace. I cut it smaller than the fabric for an added vintage feel to the fabric (cut lace
about half the size of the actual fabric.). I glued that on as well accordingly.. 
After the fabric was in place, I decided to add a natural feel to the bottle by decorating
it with some natural tone rope/twine. I started at the top and worked my way around to
the bottom. I used a pair of pliers to tighten the end in a little hidden loop at the bottom
to keep the rope in place. (This was the hardest part of this creative piece! The twine is
a bit hard to keep in tact so hold on tight as you wrap around until you are at the bottom!)
Really ---lt;<<<<<<<<<< YES, THAT'S IT!!!!! 
I LOVE The New Look Of The Bottle..

I created another and hope to use them sometime soon to serve around 
the house.. What a fun way to decorate and jazz up a bottle! Will certainly 
add a fun touch to any dinning table..My family LOVED It!!!
