Painted Wine Bottle (Frosted Designs)

This week at Frosted Designs, our Fabulous Friday Challenge is to use Fabric in your project.  I found some painted wine bottle projects on Pinterest and decided to create one.
I don't drink wine.  I have not aquired a taste for it so I enlisted the help of my wine drinking friends to save their empty bottles for me!  I sprayed the bottles with a coat of primer first.  When that dried, I sprayed the bottle with purple Krylon paint.
While the bottle was drying, I made a fabric rose to attach to a denim pocket (saved from my too-big jeans). I cut a strip of purple fabric and punched a circle out of a scrap of cardstock.
Starting in the center, I hot glued the fabric around and around and trimmed off the extra tail.
I hot glued the flower to the pocket (the coin pocket from the front of a pair of jeans) and hot glued a pearl to the center of the flower.
In order to attach the pocket to the bottle, I punched two holes in the back of the pocket with my Crop-A-Dile.
I strung a denim and lace strip through the holes and tied it to the neck of the bottle.

I added some stick on pearls, a crocheted flower and some purple gems.  I bought my crocheted flowers from my fellow Design Team member Debbie Bakk!
For a final touch, I cut out the word "love" in gold vinyl and adhered it to the bottle.
