Victorian Vintage Bottles

By: Mitzi Curi from Mitzi Made It

Glam up some old bottles with colorful vintage paper and embellishments.  These Victorian Vintage Bottles from Mitzi Curi are perfect for storing your favorite beads and buttons, and also make lovely flower vases.  Mix and match sizes for a lovely vintage display that's sure to catch everyone's eye.

  • Vintage or newer bottles of various shapes and sizes
  • Interesting paper, including sheet music or old wallpaper
  • Ribbon, lace, or seam binding
  • Corks that fit the bottles if they don't have caps
  • Pearls or beads to put inside the bottles (optional)
  • Jewelry bits for embellishment
  • E-6000 glue or hot glue
  • Brayer (optional)
  • Mod Podge (matte)
  • Sponge brush
  • Distress Ink to age the paper (optional)



  1. Once your bottles are clean and dry, begin a layering process.  I select the paper pieces first, and either cut or tear them to fit the front of the bottles.  I had some great embossed vintage wallpaper that I used for this project, and I really wanted to highlight it.

  2. Attach your paper pieces with Mod Podge by coating the back of the paper and pressing it or using the brayer to get a smooth attachment to the bottle.  A topcoat of Mod Podge can be given and the edges wiped clean with a damp paper towel.

  3. Additional embellishments can be added, including cameos, buttons, and vintage millinery.  Use hot glue to tack the items down.  My paper was so pretty, I decided not to glue anything on top of it.
  4. The bottle caps or corks can be embellished too.  I used Rub-n-Buff in Grecian Gold to color the corks and the screw on metal cap.  I just use my finger, but I think a rag or paper towel is recommended.
  5. I added vintage gold plastic roses and a fancy button to the caps for a final bit of embellishment, along with some pearls and beads in the bottom of the jars.
