Vase from a bottle with autumn flower arrangement
We made a vase like this for a school handicraft contest: the autumn theme is revealed and natural materials are used. The main advantage of this work is its versatility and durability. Arrangement of branches can stand arbitrarily long and, if desired, can always be replaced with fresh flowers. To make a vase from a bottle, you will need: A beautiful bottle with a wide neck, Matt spray paint,
Acrylic art paints, Brushes, Simple pencil, Natural materials (sprigs, cones, leaves). Wash bottle, remove all labels and dry. Of course, you need a bottle of the original form. In this case, a bottle of wine was used.
Paint a dry bottle with matte paint from a can. It is better to use neutral color: gray, black or white.
When the bottle dries, you can apply the picture. First, make a sketch with a pencil, then paint with acrylic paints.
The peculiarity of such a painting is that the design should look harmonious at any turn of the vase. I chose an autumn rural landscape: pumpkin fields and a meadow with grazing cows.
For those who can't draw, I can offer a print technique. The leaves smeared with a thin layer of paint are applied to the bottle and carefully smoothed. It is important to paint the sheet on the back side so that all the streaks are visible in the print. White and yellow prints of leaves look good against a dark background, bright and dark ones on a light one. A vase is ready, it remains to decorate it with natural materials. We stopped at the branches of wild rose and pine cones strung on a wire. The leaves can be used fresh or cut from paper.Since the competition for children, the child cut out and painted the leaves himself. Then we simply glued them to the branch.
