Me - your birthday is coming up. What kind of party do you want? A princess party?
This one is being made with an empty wine bottle.
Tear the masking tape into small pieces. Don't cut the tape, you will want the irregularity of the torn edge. Layer the tape all over the bottle until you cover the entire thing.
This is a great activity to let the kids help with. I lined up several pieces of torn tape for K and she went to town covering the bottle.
Once the bottle is covered, take your medium of choice - we used brown paint because that is what we had on hand, and blot it on your bottle. Don't paint it on there, you want it to be uneven to give the bottle a worn look. I found that with brown paint it works best to crumple up a paper towel and use that to blot the paint on the tape.
Cover the entire bottle and let it dry.
We have also made this project with a Coke bottle, spaghetti sauce jar and a pizza sauce jar.
Happy crafting ye landlubbers!
