Starry Night Etched Centerpiece Bottle | The Flamingo Chronicals: Starry Night Etched Centerpiece Bottle

Starry Night Etched Centerpiece Bottle

We are getting a little bit more camping down these days and I wanted some cool pieces that would give off some light, but not so much light that it would attract bugs. So,, one empty blue wine bottle became a starry night etched centerpiece. I love it and I need to make a few more!

Y'all,, please tell me I am not the only one who has been drinking a little more wine during the lockdown? It's not just me, is it?  We decided to work our way through the range of Moscato sparkling wines and see what we really liked. I REALLY like the variety that comes in this blue bottle. A plus side is how beautiful the bottles are when they are empty!! I mean, that's important too, right? We gotta recycle those pretty bottles!!

I used etchall™ etching creme, etchmask, and transfer paper to complete my project. Be sure to check out all the amazing things you can do with etchall™ - there are so many ways to use it.

I started by making the mask to etch through. I was pretty lazy and just grabbed a punch to use! After cutting several squares of etchmask I punched them with a small star punch I have had for some time.  Then I placed them on randomly making sure that the mask didn't cover any open stars where I wanted to etch.

Once all the stars where applied I used masking tape to cover all the areas I didn't want to etch and to make a "wall" around the area since my project was ROUND. Why can't I ever want to etch anything that is flat??? Seriously - I will never learn!

Apply the etching creme and let it sit for 15 minutes. Or longer if you are like me and move on to something else and forget about it for half an hour or so.  Remove as much etching creme as you can and return it to the bottle, then rinse the bottle under cold water to remove any leftover.

Ta-da! Etched stars on a beautiful blue bottle.
