Create a Night Sky on a Bottle #Craft


So as many of you know, awhile back I wasn’t able to post about crafting, or anything for awhile.  Let me get you filled in.  My hosting account was messed up through an error that the host did, and wasn’t willing to help me fix…saying it was a WordPress issue.  Well, after hours of research and prayers said for strength and courage, I finally figured out how to fix it myself!  Take that “Don’tGoMommy” (just a play on their name)!!

With my site back up and running, I wanted to get going with one of my favorite topics again…crafts!!!  I had seen something like this on Pinterest, and thought that it would be fun to try.  I had a large empty bottle, that I had saved, knowing that it could be used for a craft someday, and figured that I would turn it into this.  Now if you are blessed with a painting talent (as you can see I’m really not), this could turn out so much better!  For some reason, God decided to only bless me with a stick figure style of artistic talent, so it came out the best I was able to do.  Hopefully you could make yours a bit more stylish!

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on, and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks!

Materials/Tools Used:

  • Large Wine Bottle (Stickers Removed)
  • Craft Paint & Brushes
  • Christmas Lights (White)
  • Stand
  • & Time!


Instructions:

I started by painting the outside of the bottle blue to resemble the sky.  The color is completely up to you.

Next, once the sides had dried, I painted the bottom of the jar.  I did this, since at the end of the project, this will be the top.

Once I had the whole thing finished with the blue, I started on the “forest floor” portion.  Using some black paint, I just blotched around the bottom to represent the “dirt”.

After that, I started creating the trees.  I just used the side of my sponge brush to make the branches, but if you’re blessed with the talent of painting, go for it – make it amazing!

When you have finished with the scenery, let it dry and then you can start the next steps.  Using a short strand of white Christmas lights, I just inserted them into the bottle.  I had to actually use a shorter set, since you only need a few lights, but you also need some extra at the end to reach a plug.  Use your judgement on what you need, based on where you’ll put it.

I had found a candle holder on sale at a local store.  I removed the colored glass portion to use the other part as the base.  I love saving money on things that I need!

Now, just flip your bottle over and insert it into the opening at the top.  Feed your cord through the bottom, in a place that makes it easy to plug in.

Now you can just display it wherever you wish and enjoy your winter scene!  It was hard to get a photo of the bottle with the lights on inside of it, but know that it looks like a starry night in the forest! 🙂

What a creative idea! I save bottles for crafts and then end up just having a stock pile. I’ll have to try this!

Well, that’s pretty cool! I don’t mind having to buy and drink a huge bottle of wine if it means getting to make this craft! 😉

Very cool craft. I like that you reused a bottle to make this.
