Wine Lover's Gift ... Masking Tape + Shoe Polish Vase

Next on my list of DYI Gifts is one the boys made for my mom.  It started with my mother's day gift, Cole made me one of these really cool vases and we thought it would be the perfect gift for my mom for mother's day also.

I didn't have to search how to since Cole had just did it in class and gave me a play by play but I did find the steps on How to Do Things also.

What you Need:
Wine Bottle or fun shaped Bottle (emptied ... YUP you get to have a drink first)
Masking Tape
Shoe Polish
Modge Podge

Peel off the label off your bottle (first it must be emptied so you can have a nice glass of wine or you can use a alcohol bottle so pour yourself a shot or two).  I'm on my diet so sadly I didn't get to have a drink.  I took a picture of the boys and uploaded to PicMonkey.  I changed the color to sephia, added a heart and the words  We Love Monnie.  I cut the photo down to size and with the sticky of the label left over I placed the picture on the bottle.  I made it look almost like a wine label.  I put some masking tape around the picture to make sure it was secure.  I then got Caden and myself to work on tearing up the masking tape.  We made different sizes and shapes to give the vase some depth.  Cole covered the whole bottle including the bottom and the lip of the bottle.  This took about an 45 minutes to an hour to do.  Once done we took the shoe polish and went over the bottle.  We took 2 coats of shoe polish to make sure we covered every inch (be-careful around the picture).   Once the polish has dried, take some modpodge and cover everything.  You can make two coats of this if you would like.  This will seal the bottle and give it a pretty shine.  

I added some fake flowers to give it a pop of color and gave it to my mom.  It is perfect for any kitchen, especially if it's a family that loves wine it will fit in perfect.
