She used her Silhouette Cameo machine and its Studio software to create the stencils of self-stick vinyl. If you've thought about buying a cutting machine, this is the one to get! Rather than having to buy cartridge after cartridge to collect the shapes you want, the Silhouette Store allows you to download only the ones you need, right from your computer! Miss G downloaded the flour-de-lis pattern, resized and duplicated to meet her needs, and cut the stencils in just a few minutes.
One the stencils were applied, Miss Ginger used Armor Etch cream to etch the pattern. You could also etch them with a diamond burr or sandblaster, but the etching cream is fast, easy, and permanent.
After finding a cork to fit each bottle, Miss G added a screw eye to each end, covering the threads with a waterproof glue to ensure it doesn't work loose in the wind. Starting with the largest bottle at the top, she used lengths of clock chain from Lowe's to connect the layers. For the wind catcher, she used a 4" square of thin board turned to make a diamond, and stenciled a fleur on both sides with white paint.
