Embellished Bottles - Salsa!

I don't know about you but Goodwill's been a bust for me lately. With Christmas right around the corner, I've been trying to avoid the stores and work with what I have lying around the house.
I've been saving these bottles (mostly salsa ones!) for a few weeks now. Yesterday, I decided to embellish them.  I broke out some French book paper, lace, baker's twine and some charms.
I got busy gluing and wrapping and tying.  Giving each one its own personal touch.
This one is dressed up with an image from the Graphics Fairy and a burlap flower.
This one holds a French flashcard.  The word in French is knife of all things.
Then I added some carnival tickets for a pop of color.
I just love embellishing bottles.  And the best part is always using what you already have on hand!

Oooh, la, la! Your bottles turned out great, gotta love projects that use what you already have on hand. Same here with the thrift stores lately, I actually left empty handed the other day at my favorite huge Salvation Army. And that almost never happens!

Such lovely bottles you have turned out! I agree that it is such a pleasure to use what you already have. So glad to hear you will have lovely linens for your Christmas Eve dinner! Merry Christmas to you!
