Upcycled Wine Bottle for Fall

I am focused on Fall and Halloween!  This recycled wine bottle has a small circle drilled in the back for the short string of lights.  I then used mod podge to glue fall leaf napins to the wine bottle.  I let it dry for a day.  Then I took a string of 20 tiny lights and put them into the wine bottle through the drilled hole so that the plug was at the bottom of the bottle.  Tied raffia around the bottle neck and finished off with a Stampin' Up antigue brad on the center of the bow.

(supplies for this project, an empty wine bottle, a handy man who can drill circles into glass :), paper napkins or you could also use pretty printed tissue paper, a string of 20 tiny lights from Hobby Lobby, mod podge, raffia, hot glue gun, and a Stampin' Up antique brad.)
 I used my fingers to work with the mod podge, but I am still peeling glue off of my rings!  Next time I am going to try to use a sponge brush, I will let you know how that works out.

Have a great week
Be inspired to create!
