Shabby altered bottle

I made one of these last year and have been collecting the same bottles again to make some more. 
My one has some artificial flowers in it and is sitting on a small table in my living room.


Painted with Fresco Finish at the bottom and lace added over the top.


Ribbon and pearls.


Vintage dressmaking pattern glued to the top part and more ribbon and trimmings with pearls.


Lots of flowers and gems to decorate.


Have a great week and thanks for visiting me.
