1. Soak the bottles to remove any labels. Dry thoroughly.


2. Choose areas of the paper that, when cut, would make an interesting design.


3. Starting at the base of the bottle and working up, brush on Mod Podge and layer your paper over it. Apply larger strips of paper horizontally to cover more of the bottle at once, and layer smaller designs on top. Cover the entire bottle or leave open "windows" of glass to show through.


4. Finish by applying a coat of Mod Podge to the entire bottle. Allow to dry.
