Sisters JoAnne and Ellen create lighted bottles and jars using collage and decoupage techniques.

JoAnne Cordero and Ellen Nunes are sisters who have always shared creativity and crafting. Inspired by love of birds, flowers and other natural subjects, we create lighted bottles and jars using collage and decoupage techniques. Our first bottles were made with dinner napkins torn into pieces and randomly applied to the bottles using glue. We wanted more control over the effect, and so started cutting the napkins into shapes, and also using tissue paper for the range of colors. Most of our bottles are now made with hand-cut pieces of tissue paper or napkin, with some also including dried natural materials such as flowers and moss.
We find that many of our friends and family appreciate the second life that we give their wine bottles, applesauce jars and liquor bottles. We have also been to the dump in search of interesting shapes and sizes. Once the bottle is clean it can be drilled using a diamond bit, and it’s ready for crafting. After the paper is arranged and glued on, we give it two coats of acrylic urethane sealer and install the lights. Our creations are a beautiful way to add light to the night, whether as a nightlight or for mood lighting indoors or out.

We do our best to keep only items on hand listed, and in many cases will be able to ship next day. During the holiday season, we do a lot of local shows and may not have the exact bottle as pictured, but we will ship you a bottle of the same shape, design and colors. Custom orders will normally take 7-10 days to complete, and one additional day for each additional custom item. Your light will be wrapped in bubble wrap and packaged to ensure that it arrives safely at its destination. We ship using USPS priority mail, and your package will have a tracking number and will be fully insured.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of our nightlights have been finished with two coats of polycrylic sealer. They can be wiped with a damp cloth, but should not be left wet. Do not submerge the nightlight in water.
Each night light has spare bulbs included in case one of the bulbs goes out.
