Looking for diy upcycle projects? Make Decoupage Upcycled Jars from Mitzi Curi. This is a fun project that doesn't cost a bundle.
- Mod Podge
- Distress Ink for making your labels look authentically stained and old
- Foam brush
- I selected all three of the labels above from The Graphics Fairy, a fabulous resource for graphic images. If you click on "Advertising" and "Labels" on the sidebar, you'll have lots of great vintage designs just a click away. Print them out, resize them if needed, and age them around the edges with some ink such as Tim Hotz Distress Ink. That way, the white edges won't distract from the label once on the bottle.
- The largest bottle was a perfect holder for a gathering of peacock feathers, which pick up the green color scheme I have going on. A little ribbon and some millinery blossoms look at home in my Sigault bottle, and my vintage apothecary jar looks interesting with a collection of green thread spools.
- The advertising I selected to serve as "labels" for these amber bottles makes a bit of an optical illusion, but I thought they were interesting nonetheless.
- An lastly, I used a copy of an old coffee bag, trimmed it down, and used it for this large glass canister that I filled with......coffee beans!
