This pin started my project... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/84020349272930643/
And this pin also gave me ideas on decorating it : http://www.pinterest.com/pin/84020349272556561/ I think it came out very cool!!

.

But when I put the masking tape all over the bottle I remember that project we did in elementary school.  After ripping the masking tape and covering the bottle I painted it with shoe polish.  It leaves it with a faux leather look and that is totally steampunk!!
Hehe yea I used a starbucks bottle...

The first look:
 

Then I glued clogs and assorted little of this a little of that......
This is what it looks like on all four sides...





I even made the wire on the side.
