Decoupage Bottle

Decoupage (dāko͞oˈpäZH) sounds complicated but is actually such an easy thing to do! Basically it’s making use of a special kind of glue to seal in and glue or varnish a surface where you intend to put a design. I especially enjoy this craft because there is so much you can do with it. For example, redesigning recycled bottles.

This craft used to be very challenging for me because I’d have to order online to get my glue or make it myself. But today, Mod Podge and other types of special glue are now available in the market like Deovir and Gourdo’s. Hooray! In terms of materials you can use different kinds of things to stick on to absolutely anything (as long as it’s not too porous). I’m not kidding, you can decoupage your house if you want to. (ooh, there’s a thought!) But for this craft I’ll be using a more modest material–recycled glass bottle.
