What You´ll Need
1. Paint The Bottle
Cover the whole bottle with black acrylic paint and a sponge. You can add multiple layers of paint to ensure the surface of the bottle stays smooth.
2. Add The Bead
You can get more creative with the bead you choose, as it will act as your bottle stopper. The one I used is a broken Christmas light, and I thought it was perfect. Glue the bead to the top of the bottle with adhesive glue.
For the "always" quote, you can either write it yourself or print it online like I did. You can find many printables on Pinterest. Glue the label on the bottle.
4. Add The Final Touches
To give the bottle that magical touch, I melted some black beeswax to the top of the bottle. Don´t do this without parental supervision if you are a minor! When you melt the wax, protect your work surface because the process can get messy! You don´t need to use lots of the candle wax. Just drop a little bit on top of the bottle. Many times, letting it fall naturally will create most wonderful results.
Your Severus Snape bottle is ready! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and are inspired to try new things.
What You´ll Need
If you like dragons as much as I do, you are going to love making dragon eggs with this tutorial!
Place The Pins
Start placing the pins from the top of the egg and always cover a third of the previous pin in the next layer. Work all the way down to cover the entire egg. It took me about 90 pins to cover one.
Here are my two dragon eggs. At this point, they should look a bit like golden pinecones.
Paint the eggs
Pick a color you like and paint the entire egg.
I love using glitter in my craft projects. You can use basic crafting glitter or shimmering nail polish. I think it gives some extra magic to your dragon eggs. Be creative!
The dragon eggs are complete! I painted my eggs red, purple, and green. I hope you enjoy making your own!
