Still looking for a gift for mom? Want one that gives you something yummy and then costs nothing? Want something that upcycles? Want one that's included in this week's trash to treasure over at Reinvented? Can't get much more specific than that. How about:
Simple, yes, but sometimes less is more! And the flowers I was using for props were some that I made in this post.
Since I had so many of these bottles to work with I wanted to try something I saw over at Thrifty Decor Chick - the jute covered bottle. This one is considerably more time consuming but still has a great effect.
First I applied tacky glue directly to the bottle. Then, starting in the back, I wound the jute around and around. When I reach the place I wanted the label I stopped, applied the label and then kept going until it looked right to me.
So easy I made it while I was cooking dinner.
Of course after all that there was dinner clean up and I wasn't up to trying any more styles, but I still have a few bottles left and a couple labels I didn't get to use. We'll see if I can come up with anything else. I think a matching trio would be really nice...
If you'd like to make your own you are welcome to use the labels I created. Just follow the links below, right click and save the photos to your own computer, and then be sure to resize them to fit your needs. Have fun!
