Well, it’s all hand painted, I got the deer idea from the window decoration and it inspired me to draw one on the bottle.
I find bottles at recycle centers and from Friends.
I clean them up, removing the labels. Then drill in the back at the bottom with a 5/8 inch diamond circle bit.
Clean the bottle with Alcohol before painting.
I lay out what I want to put on my bottle and start drawing, I even trace some things onto the bottle using tracing paper
Once the design is on the bottle, I start painting, I use acrylic and enamel paints.
When finished, I take a toothbrush dip the bristles in water, then white paint and flick on the snow by running my finger nail through the bristles of the toothbrush.
I bake it in a 350 degree over for 15 minutes and turn the oven off to let it cool completely.
Once cooled, I run the mini lights through the back of the bottle and pull out the top and wire the lights up to the topper.
