Here's where I started. Find any bottle. Plastic or glass, big or small.Here's where it gets easy. Just wrap it in masking tape. Don't stress yourself out about "puckers" or the angle. If it starts going the wrong way on you, just rip it off and continue wrapping at a different angle.
When you're done wrapping it in masking tape, distress it with some shoe polish. This gives it an old fashioned leather look. I used a mixture of black and brown shoe polish. Just keep rubbing and adding the shoe polish until you have reached your desired effect. Then mod podge over the top! There is no need to mod podge underneath because the masking tape is self sticking. You can also just water down glue-all or wood glue, and paint it over the top with an old paint brush. The shoe polish may try to resist the mod podge a little bit, but stick with it. It works out :-) I also painted the lid to the bottle black with some acrylic paint.
Voila! An old fashioned leatherized bottle coming your way! I think it would make a great gift for a guy. Like a diy father's day gift. You could also just use it to package homemade gifts. Like home-made vanilla or something. I think this would be a really great craft to do with a wine bottle, but I just didn't have the time to do a big bottle.
