How To Decorate & Embellish With Dough Flower
I love recycling & reusing ordinary stuff. I like spicing up some ordinary junk with a touch of creativity. Transformation is always a fun task to do. So here today I am recycling & beautifying an ordinary glass bottle with dough flowers. If you are a crafty hoarder like me, I am sure you will have some empty glass bottles in your kitchen cabinet. So why not to design one today.
If you have made some dough by following my recipe in previous post. You will now able to decorate a bottle with dough flowers & embellishments. I am going to share steps How To Decorate & Embellish Glass bottle With Dough Flowers. Let’s see step by step tutorial.
You Will Need :
Spray Paint & Glass Paints.
Use transparent glue on the area where you want to paste some soft dough.
Make a thick strip of soft dough & fix it on the bottle the way you want. I put it in a light swirl on the bottle. Coat it with transparent glue.
Start fixing dry dough flowers on soft dough strip. If your dough strip is thin, You will not be able to fix flowers nicely. You need to have a thick layer in which flowers can be easily fixed. You can glue the back side of the flowers & embellishment for fixing more well.
Fix flowers, petals & fillers accordingly on your bottle. Let them fix & wait for a few hours.
How To Decorate & Embellish With Dough Flowers
After pasting & fixing all flowers, Let it dry. transparent glue will disappear in an hour & dough will be stable in few hours. Dough will not get dry in an hour, It will take 24 hours minimum as the strip is applied thick.
After 24 hours, I spray paint the bottle. I wore plastic gloves to save my hands from spray shower & spread a sheet on the floor as well to protect the surface from spray paint.
Paint the bottle from all sides. I use silver spray paint, It’s grey when wet & turned silver in an hour when gets dry.
I paint some glass paints on the flowers, petals & fillers. A touch of soft colors looks more proper I guess. What do you think?
