Sparkly Gatsby Style Spring

What's not to love about sparkly decorations?!
Altered bottles are such versatile decorations....
I covered this one in silk beaded fabric in a lovely soft aqua....
 Then I added sparkly vintage jewelry to dress it up even more!
But it has to be pretty on both sides, right?  On this side I added a pop of bright pink vintage jewelry...
Then on the top of the bottle...I added an Easter egg to fit into the top of the bottle....something had to go on top, right?  It sits inside the top of the bottle just like a wine cork/bottle stopper.
Here's another one!

Here's how I made the bottle stopper...I used felt to make a cylinder shape to act as the stopper...
Oh so sparkly!!
 I even made a sparkly little birdie!  Hee hee!  Isn't she pretty?
 Thanks for stopping by my little blog!
Hugs, Catherine

  7. These are simply gorgeous! No one does bling like you my friend. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  8. Beautiful. Love the bottle. I have a bunch of formals. I have been using them to make horse show jackets from. You have some wonderful projects made from the formals. I want to make pumpkins and wreaths now.

    1. Thank you, JR. Would love to see the horse show jackets and anything else that you create!!! :)

  9. These are absolutely gorgeous! Your materials are so pretty, and what you do with them really works magic on the bottles.
