Easy Fall Decor: Decoupaged Glass Jars and BottlesTutorial

Fall DIY: The mornings have been chilly so there’s no denying that fall is right around the corner and that has me thinking of fall decorating despite the fact that I’m hanging on to every last bit of summer. This year, I have a beautiful fall vignette consisting of vintage inspired bottles filled with feathers, dried cotton stalks, autumn leaves and dried silver dollar plants. The plain bottles could use a little embellishment and Martha Stewart pizzazz.

I chose to utilize Martha Stewart Decoupage and the cutest botanical birds cutouts for this project.  

Materials (available at Michael’s Craft Store):

Martha Stewart Decoupage

  • Martha Stewart Decoupage – I used the Durable Gloss Finish which perfect for this project since the formula is durable, top-rack dishwasher safe and for use on multiple surfaces! Imagine the possibilities!
  • Martha Stewart Crafts Botanical Birds Decoupage Paper Cutouts – so cute! Be sure to check out the other designs too!
  • Glass bottles, vases or jars – I recycled some from around the house.
  • Soft bristle paint brush.

Tutorial:

1. Clean glass with rubbing alcohol.

7. Repeat above steps 3-6 again after 1-2 hours. Now it’s ready to display but allow 28 days cure time for washing or heavy use. 

Aren’t these awesome?
