Original ideas for decorating bottles with tights

Have you always thrown away torn nylon tights? Most likely - yes, because they very quickly become unusable. But now it’s worth reconsidering this decision. It turns out that old nylon pantyhose can be used repeatedly for various purposes: creating lining, flowers, jewelry in the head, etc. Today we will consider another interesting and unusual idea - decorating bottles with pantyhose.

What is it and what does it eat with

Dressing with pantyhose belongs to the well-known decoupage technique. It is mainly based on wipes, and the described method is simply a variation of this technique. With its help, you will be able to create an interesting and unusual design. Also, this method gives more opportunities than just wipes.

The bottles seem to be full of coins that just want to get enough sleep from makeshift purses

To create a full-fledged composition, the proposed type of decoration can be combined with other methods of decoration:

  • Quilling. With this technique you will be able to complement the decor with new volumetric elements.
  • Design grits. In this case, you can put it inside or stick it on the outside. It all depends on the chosen topic.
  • Decoupage. You can combine different types of it. For example, use nylon along with napkins.
  • Assembly. This is a kind of collage. In this case, instead of various paper clippings, three-dimensional objects are used and are also glued to the surface.
  • Painting. Any kind of painting is welcome.
  • Mosaic. It can be carried out using eggshells, paper, glass or paint.

Glass Bottle Decoration Materials

Mystical artifact

In addition to the materials listed, prepare the following tools:

  • acrylic paint;
  • brushes;
  • varnish;
  • shiny coating.
Varnish, paint and glue for decoupage a glass bottle

It is better to take the paint in an aerosol package, you will also need PVA glue

First, prepare the basis:

  1. Find the right size and shape item.
  2. Remove the label and wash it well.
  3. Let the product dry and degrease it.

Important! Make sure that no glue is left on the surface of the label.

Now you can start decorating:

  1. We make a sketch.Draw on the product an approximate arrangement of the elements, that is, determine where the lightning with the contents will be located. Make a backing in this place: stick a dark piece of hard cloth. This is necessary to create a background, and in order for volumetric elements to hold tight.
  2. Glue the zipper. To do this, it must be unfastened. Then stretch it so that coins are visible that fit between its parts. The fabric part of the zipper is glued to the surface, and the iron part (i.e. the lock) protrudes, and remains unsecured.
  3. We fix the coins. To create a better effect in the composition, and for a more convenient fixation, some coins are best cut. Make a part of the “gold” half and beaten, leave the rest in its original form. Glue the elements to the substrate, carefully and harmoniously placing them on the available area.
  4. We make a drapery. Soak the tights well with glue diluted with water. Apply capron to the bottle horizontally or diagonally, creating various folds. The fabric can be positioned in any direction. The main thing is to create beautiful folds. It is also important that they are well saturated with glue and well set. Upon completion of the volumetric design, allow the product to dry, leaving it for a day in a warm, dry place.

    After the tights are beautifully distributed on the bottle, you need to grease everything with plenty of glue

  5. We carry out coloring. To give the fabric a more saturated color, you need to dye it. To do this, you need acrylic paint: black and brown. First paint the nylon brown. In this case, it is not necessary to stain all the folds, you can leave some areas unpainted. Now take the black color and shade the creases. After this layer has dried, take the sparkles and apply them, making the coating as in the photo.

    Spangles should be applied with light touches of the brush or with a foam sponge

  6. We fix the result. Fix the resulting decor with varnish. It is better to choose an aerosol option. When choosing a liquid consistency, carefully brush all the folds.

Bride and groom

Decoupage of bottles with tights for wedding decor is a simple and quick option. The essence of the work remains the same as described above. Preparation is carried out on the same principle.

When creating a sketch, determine the place under the photo.

Important! Print your photo on plain paper.

Using standard decoupage, stick the photo on the base. It is impossible to work with photo paper in this technique, so take a regular one.

Preparing a glass bottle for decoupage

Before sticking a photo, the bottle needs to be coated with primer

Then make a space around the photo with a capron, creating a drapery according to the above principle.

Next, go on to coloring. In this case, choose light colors, white and blue are best. The base material should also be flesh or white: this way the paint will lie more evenly.

Fix the design with varnish, and the original frame as a wedding decoration is ready.
