Rich and beautiful fall colors

Colleen from Scrappin Granny here today to share a fun and recycled project.



 I started with a wine bottle that normally would have been thrown away.  I spray painted the bottle with some brown spray paint.


Next I had purchased some napkins that had beautiful and rich fall colors and I used the Sunflower die by Cheery Lynn to cut out flowers and layered them together.  Since I didn't want them to be Sunflowers I used the center piece and a punch and punched out a smaller circle for the middle.



I glued the flowers onto the bottle and added fall leaves behind the flowers as well as some vines.  I used the Cheery Lynn Dimensional Small Leaves to cut out the leaves that are behind the flowers and then used Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish for the leaf flourish.  Finished off the bottle with some brown and gold ribbon trim.



Now you have a beautiful fall bottle that normally would have been in the trash.


Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog. There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store. For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
