Shabby Chic Altered Bottle

Hello Friends!! I actually altered this bottle a few months ago but I've never posted it. It has been sitting on my desk and I've been meaning to take photos but keep forgetting to do so. I decided to use it to store vintage buttons that I use for my cards and projects.

I wrapped lace trimming around the bottle and I also wrapped a strip of fabric that I stamped images on to then tied it to the bottle to create a bow.

I created a beaded pin and stuck it on to the bow and also stamped a clothes pin and clipped it on to the bow next to the pin

I added pearls to the prima flowers and stuck it on to the lace.

I had sewn this fabric flower a while back and decided to use it for my altered bottle.

Lastly, I covered the cap with a crochet flower that I made, added a prima flower to it and a decorative gem to top it off. I also added the blue beads around the cap.

That's about it! It's really fun to alter bottles. . .I like the shabby chic look and this was a fun way to use up some of my materials that I had lying around in my craft room! It's also a great way to store buttons!

That's it for today. Hope you're having a wonderful Friday evening!
