Frosted Snowflake Altered Bottle

A few days ago I posted about an altered bottle swap that I participated in and I posted pictures the bottle I received.  Here is the bottle I made for my swap partner Melanie.
I started by frosting the bottle.  I then added metallic stickers and layers of lace and metallic trim.  On top of the trim are beaded snowflakes.  The stopper at the top is a crystal drawer knob.  I added a silver bead to the top which holds the beaded sprays and snowflake and ornament charms.  Each side of the bottle is the same.

Yes, there is an altered bottle tutorial coming that includes the frosting technique that I used and more!!

I'm just inspired by your altered bottle. The addition of the feet just makes it something special and reminds me of French perfume bottles a dear friend of my mother's used to collect. Can I ask an idiot question? Which glue do you use to attach the feet to glass?
