For my decoration today I made a centerpiece for my dining room. This was a lot of fun to make because
1) I got to do a lot of experimenting with a new-to-me product (alcohol ink) and
2) I got to sample three yummy wines (the sacrifices we make for our crafts)
See that picture in the background, I made that too! Follow my blog to find out how.To start I cleaned the bottles and removed the labels. After they were dried I poured some epsom salt in (found in the first aid isle at Target). The branches were found in my backyard and I spray painted them with silver glitter paint. I used two cans, this is a good use for those Michael's coupons.
I used a few different techniques on the ornaments.
I only had one shade of each color (watermelon, sail boat blue and citrus) but if you have multiple shades of ink you could really get some nice dimension.
