Snowy Winter Decor

Hey there lovely readers! I'm SO excited to guest post here on Tutus & Tea Parties and would like to thank Lauren for the opportunity. I'm Javeriya, (a medical student and craft addict) from Believe&Inspire, a blog where you can find posts on DIY, crafts, fashion, travel and much more! I also have a YouTube DIY channel where I upload freshly baked DIY tutorials every Monday. I would love it if you subscribe to my YouTube channel here. 

Okay, so let's get started with today's all snowy tutorial. Get your supplies ready and join in for some fun! Today, I'm going to share a tutorial on Winter Decor with old bottles. You can follow the tutorial through the video, or follow the instructions here. 


Things you need:
3 glass bottles of different sizes
White pearl beads
Talcum powder
Epsom salt
Silver and white ribbons
Silver glitter
White yarn
1/2 yards of white fabric
White and silver candles
A wide dish large enough to place everything on it.

Bottle no. 1

  1. Start with taping off in the middle. Leaving 2-3 inches of space, tape off the upper area parallel to the one before.
  2. Pour some silver glitter in a dish followed by white glue to make a glitter paste.
  3. Apply the paste onto the bottle.
  4. Let it dry for 15 minutes and apply the second coat, leave for drying for another 15 minutes.
  5. When fully dried, remove the tape.
  6. The next step is to add a layer of powder. Take some glue in a dish, and add few drops of water to increase it's fluidity. Apply a very thin coat of the mixture.
  7. Sprinkle powder on it. If you want a smooth texture, dab it with the other side of sponge, or leave it as it is for a cloudy look.
  8. Next, take the pearls and glue them on the top part of the bottle.
  9. Cover the mouth of the bottle with the ribbon.
  10. Finish off the look with a pretty bow.

Bottle no 2

  1. Cut out 1.5 inch wide strips. The number of strips might vary according to the size of your bottle.
  2. Add ruffles using hand stitch or through the machine.
  3. Glue the ruffles onto the bottle.
  4. Cover the mouth of the bottle with another strip.
  5. Wrap a silver ribbon around the mouth.

Bottle no 3

  1. To create this icicle look, take a paint brush dipped in glue and make thin straight lines on the bottle.
  2. Sprinkle salt onto it.
  3. Follow the same pattern and draw lines at the bottom, but this time use powder instead of salt.
  4. Finish off the look of this bottle by wrapping the white ribbon and adding a bow in the end.
  5. Make some pom pom flowers and add it to the ruffled bottle if you may like.
  6. Arrange all the bottles on the dish and use the decor to add a winter touch to your dining table or where ever you like best. :)
