Hello! I wanted to share some of my homemade decorations with y’all. Of course, they are Pinterest inspired, but I made some changes so that they would fit our home.
The above picture was the pin I found on Pinterest. This gave me an idea for a centerpiece in our kitchen. I wanted our bottles to be blue and yellow, though, since those are the dominant colors in the room.
This project was very cheap. We already had the bottles, so all I had to do was remove the labels with Goo-Gone, then wash them. I bought the ribbon and glass beads at Walmart and I had the burlap twine and paint from a previous project.
First, I picked out which bottles I wanted and how I wanted them arranged. I chose two bottles and a vase, all of different heights and widths so that there would be some depth.
I painted the tallest bottle blue with washable acrylic paint and let it dry while I worked on the other bottles.
The second bottle I wanted to keep as simple as possible, since the bottle was so nice, so I just layered the colored ribbons, then added a twine bow.
For the little vase, which I placed front and center, I filled it with the various blue glass beads. I took a few pieces of twine and tied it in a knot around the vase.
After the bottle that I had painted dried, I glued some yellow ribbon to it for contrast. Next, I braided a few of the twine strands, then glued the braid to the ribbon. And here is how it turned out:
Simple, but effective.
I also used decorated bottles for the centerpieces in our wedding, but they were a little fancier. We used satin ribbon in the colors of the wedding (chocolate brown and lavender) along with some white lace. On top of all of that, we added broaches.
I now keep the bottle from our head table on a cabinet in our kitchen, along with our unity sand from the wedding. The glass we used for our unity sand was an old whiskey bottle. I painted the L on myself with some brown acrylic paint.
Very simple project that can be easily personalized.
Next, I will be sharing one of my favorite comfort food recipes. In the meantime, feel free to give me some feedback or advice. Have a great week!
