I have always considered myself to be a creative person, and I LOVE to scavage thrift stores, junk stores and Goodwill looking to fulfill that obsession!! It really is an obsession, you know what I'am talking about!! LOL

Embellished Vintage Bottles/SHOW AND TELL

I saw the most amazing Rhinestone encrusted bottles..and their prices...:(  I would never pay the price, but, would so love to have one!   So, I decided to pull out my "Make Do" skills and go for it.  The bottle on the left is simply covered in teeny tiny clear beads, seqwines (SP) around the top and all sizes of blue "stones" stuck on in a random order.  The other is literally wrapped around and round with a sparkly seaqined (SP), glitter and small clear stone garland.  I did wrap 2 short lenghts of rhinestones around the top and bottom. Not what I really wanted, but, I'll do for now!  I also have shown my bottles at My Cottage Charm's Treasure and Trinkets.  Thanks!    Rhonda


  1. Your bottles turned out beautiful. Great idea. If you add the photo to your photo albumn, then you can creat a gadget on your sidebar with a link tro my blog. Hope this helps.

  4. Your bottles turned out lovely! I think it's so much more satisfying to see something handmade than just spending a ton of money and buying it:)
