Embellished Apothecary Bottles

by - December 18, 2012

Because I refuse to do any sort of shopping these last few days before Xmas (crowds, traffic, etc. - no thanks!), I'm doing some projects with items I already have in the house.  Last night, I decided to embellish some of these apothecary bottles I pick up whenever I'm at a garage sale.

I added some vintage lace on the first one using spray adhesive.  Then I wrapped some vintage French poetry book paper around the lace.  I tied the old button (from my Mom's stash) on the front using twine.  Another old button adorns the top.
For the second one, I just used the same French poetry book paper.  This time, I added a distressed, hand-stamped tag and some tea-stained seam binding.

I love dressing these little bottles up and using items I already have in the house!
