A little different for me but I decided to do a zelda chest and fairy bottle DIY! Haha I hope you guys still like it. If you do, should I do more? I have fun with stuff like this too. =D Go to Youtube.com/msmaomaoz to subscribe and help me out!
Step 1: What You Need
What I used to get this done:
-pre-made chest (if you know how you can obviously make your own)
-glass bottles & cork tops
-fuzzy little balls
-white felt paper
-paint (brown, yellow, and gold)
Most stuff I had at home if I didn't then I got it at Micheal's but I'm sure any craft store will have it.
Step 2: Starting
To start off I made sure my corks fit in the bottles.
Step 3: Prep
I then took out three colors of the little fuzzy balls. I went with purple, blue, and green.
Step 4: Wings
I used that white felt paper to cut out the wing shape. It's one big wing on top and a small one on bottom on both sides of the fairy. I used hot glue to glue on the wings.
Step 5: String
Once that looked good I took the hot glue again and glued a little bit of the sting to the cork and the other end to the fairy. I then just stuck them in the bottle and they look like the are floating.
Step 6: Yellow
I took yellow acrylic paint to paint the edges, middle, center, and bottom of the chest. You may need a few coats.
Step 7: Brown
Taking brown paint I painted that everywhere else that I didn't use yellow. I didn't like the first brown I used so I ended up repainting it darker. Haha.
Step 8: Inside
I painted the inside of the chest yellow.
Step 9: Gold
I used gold paint (mine is airbrush paint because it's what i had but you can use regular gold acrylic paint) and I put that over all the yellow.
Step 10: DONE
All done! easy and fun! =)
