DIY bottle decor

     Posted by Chantel on February 17, 2019

Hello! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Chantel, Lori’s daughter. I haven’t always taken after my Mom and her love of scrapbooking, but over the past couple of years, I have dabbled here and there, and my passion for this craft has grown. I now scrapbook quite a bit, and I also love altering things.

Today at the store we had a “Just Create” crop, and on those days we can create along with all those that join us for the day.  (a little perk of working at the store) Today I decided to decorate these bottles for mine and my fiancé’s house (they will probably also be decor for our wedding). I love how they turned out.


The olé milk jug is a thrift store find, as is the “fancier” one with the lid. The whisky bottle I found in the ditch in -30 weather when I was out on a photo hunt.


I have a passion for thrifting and finding old things and making them into a decor pieces, if you know me, you know that I love something that’s vintage and has some history.


Today I learned how to mix gold glitter and glass glitter into matte medium and then apply it to create a cool vintage effect. When I put it on I thought it looked horrible but Mom reassured me to just wait till it dried to see how it would look. It looks so cool, I never would have guessed that this is how you do this.


Anyway, for my first blog post (thanks Lisa for encouraging me) … I thought I would share this little story about my old bottles.
