Perfume Bottle Night Light

Get the free printable lable     

First you will need to print your lable. You can use the free one provided but I also have additional perfume labels available in my etsy store If you try to print it from the web it will not print the right size. So you will need to save it to your computer. If you are running windows do this by right clicking on the picture. A box will pop up with a list of options. Choose "save picture as". Now another box will pop up. Choose where you would like the picture to be saved and make a note of where you put it so you can find it when you have a program open that you can print it with. My documents or My Pictures is a good place to save it to. Once you have chosen the location click "save".
Any photo program will work to open and print tit. Open your photo program and on the tool bar look for "File" then "Open" a browse box will open, look for where you have stored the picture. If you don't have any photo program you can use "mspaint". This use to be under "Accessories" on your start menu but the new computers don't have it in the accessories anymore. It is still on your computer though and you can still use it. To find "mspaint" on your computer begin at your computers start button. When the menu pops up look for search. Once you have search open click on the arrow that says "All files and folders" type "paint' in the box, click on the search button. A list of files will form in the white area to the right of the search box you are looking at. Find "mspaint" on the list and click on it. Windows paint will open and you can open the file and print your pattern. Under "File" then "Open" look for where you have stored the picture. Once the image is on your screen just click on the Print icon choose the size you would like in the options and print.
Now that you have your pattern printed you can use a repositionable glue stick lightly on the backside of the print of your pattern. This will make your pattern into a giant Post-it-note. Stick it to a scrap piece of paper to remove any excess glue. You would not want to get glue on your project and after it has been stuck once any glue that is going to come off will. Place the pattern on a sheet of cardstock score it and cut it out. Remove and discard the post-it pattern. After removing the pattern from your cardstock wipe it with a used dryer sheet to remove any unseen glue. This way if you plan to use embossing powder it will only stick where you want it to.

This is a take off the popular wine bottle mood lights. I thought it was much more appropriate for a bedroom or bath. To begin you need to drill a hole in the back side of the bottle for your lights to go though. I used a dremel with a diamond bit. It takes some time and especially with this bottle as the glass at the base was almost Ĺ inch think : /
Once you have the hole though you can grind in a circular motion to make it as big as you like. Because of the time involved in making a hole large enough for a night light I opted for a 20 strand mini light set. I was able to get these even off season in the floral department of my local craft store.
Once you have your hole drilled clean the bottle well and drizzle alcohol inks in the color of choice. I kinda moved it around with my fingers until I got a marbled pattern. Once that is dry seal it with Matt finish clear acrylic spray. Let dry.
You will need to print your labels. I feel they look much more authentic printed on brochure paper and edged with a gold paint pen. Once printed glue them to the bottle. You need to use a xyron, mounting adhesive or craft spray glue because when the light comes on you donít want glue streaks to show. Poke your lights through the hole.
< For the topper, use some stiff craft wire and secure it to a chandelier crystal leaving about 1 Ĺ inches of wire. Twist this into a corkscrew shape. Glue a washer to the top of the bottle cork and screw the crystal in place. Cover the rest of the cork with silver metal tape. You can stop there but I wound some more of the craft wire around a pencil to form a spring. Then I flattened out the rings like a petal, bent the ends of the petals down and wrapped around the base of the crystal.
