Fairy House - Glass Bottle

Once upon a time there was a fairy village. The first fairy's house was made of clay. The second fairy's house was made of tin. The third fairy's house? Well, it's made of a Baileys Irish Cream bottle. Have fun gathering the materials for this project!

As I am creating houses for my fairy village, I wanted to make sure that each house was unique. I also wanted to add some extra magic and make each house to light up at night. This time we'll use a little fairy dust.

Materials


  • Baileys Irish Cream bottle
  • Martha Stewart glass paint in metallic copper
  • small paint dauber
  • stencil (optional)
  • paint brush (optional)
  • glow in the dark glitter
  • fairy wish door locket (made by Darice)
  • wire cutter
  • silicon adhesive

Directions


Empty your bottle (you decide how.)

Wash it and remove the label.






Use a paint dauber to apply the glass paint to the raised Baileys logo.

That adds some bling, but I'd like a little more.






Place a stencil onto the bottle than use the paint dauber to apply paint.

I made my stencil with Grafix Cling Vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo.

If you are extra artsy, you could just use a brush to paint on your own design.



Fill all the open parts of the stencil with paint.








Carefully remove the stencil.

Sprinkle a bit of fairy dust glow in the dark glitter over the painted stencil as well as the painted logo.

Wait until the paint is dry to brush off the excess glitter so you don't smear the paint.


A quick note about the paint. Typically, you can heat cure this kind of paint in the oven to make it permanent. If you add glitter over the paint, baking it is not advisable. Instead, let the paint air cure. It should be permanent after drying for 21 days.

The fairy wish doors are lockets made to wear on a necklace. You can find them in the beading and jewelry making section at the craft store. (I bought mine at the local Joann's)

Since we aren't making necklaces, you don't really need the loop at the top of the door.



Use a wire cutter to remove the loop.








Finally, using a bit of silicon adhesive, attach the door to the bottle.

 Place it in your garden and wait for some magical guests to move in.
