This pattern includes the line work and instructions to make a 4″, 6″ and 9″ version of this bottle. The “Mermaid Tears” bottles are the first design in a series of “Potion Bottles” that I will be creating. While it was initially intended as a Halloween decoration, I think it would make a year round conversation piece in any bathroom or nautical setting. I hope you enjoy creating it!
The largest bottle is approximately 9” tall and is cut from 1/4” thick MDF. A piece this size would look elegant sitting on an easel in a bathroom, with pretty little shells and pearls scattered at its base, or even as the central focus of a lovely wreath, surrounded by shells, strung pearls and a bow made of ‘netting’. (You can buy a plastic mesh bath ‘pouf’ at the dollar store and unravel it to make the bow. Wouldn’t that look amazing?)
