  3. Apply a layer of white acrylic paint to the outside of the bottle or vase first.
  4. Mix a little of your red paint in with the white paint to make pink. Apply the color to the vase or bottle and allow it to dry.
  5. Take your marker and draw your design on the bottle. If you are having a problem drawing the hearts it is a good idea to cut them out of paper first then trace them onto the bottle.

  7. Lay the bottle down and apply some wood glue to the area on the bottle that does not have your design. Use your paintbrush to spread the glue out and avoid getting glue on your design.
  8. Take the fake snow and sprinkle it over the glue on the bottle or vase. Use your hands or fingers to press this in place. Now stand the bottle up and shake off the excess snow. Continue on like this until you have the bottle covered. Allow this to dry before moving on to the next step. If you are in a hurry, use your hairdryer to speed up the drying time.
