A dozen participants, eleven women and one man, gathered together on a
beautiful Saturday morning at Lura Campbell’s quilting studio in
Helena, Alabama, for a four-hour workshop offered by Nathan Winkler of
the Steel Quilt Company on how to make a quilt block with wood, steel,
Nathan’s steel quilts are made by using hand-cut recycled steel,
arranged in patterns on painted plywood backgrounds, and framed with
recycled barn wood strips. Depending on how he prepares the materials,
these pieces may hang indoors or out. I could even see them topped with
glass and used as tabletops.
You can use paper tape, glue from a glue gun, paint, stickers, charms etc… to embellish and remake an empty bottle. This tutorial uses paper tape, but you could also wet and rip a brown paper bag into ragged pieces and glue them to a bottle. This DIY reminds me of a lot of the altered potion bottles I’ve posted on my Halloween blog halloweencrafts.
