ETCETERAS: Etched Glass Milk Bottle

Etched Glass Milk Bottle (5)I have such a fun project to share with you today. Have you ever etched glass? It’s not as hard as it sounds, in fact, it was super easy and I can’t wait to create more etched glass pieces. I happened upon this project because of a nice reader.

Upcycling: lace water bottle


I was inspired to make this lace vase after seeing Decoupaging with Lace on Urban Comfort. For my version, I used a very tall bottle that some fancy water came in. This is actually a double upcycle project because the lace I used was an old curtain valance.


To make a lace bottle you can wrap the entire bottle in the lace or use strips of the lace depending on how you want your finished product to look. Apply Mod Podge to your bottle and wrap the fabric around the bottle. 


The length of the valance fit the bottle almost perfectly and I was able to use the lacy edge at the top of the bottle. Since the neck of the bottle is narrower, I cut the slits in the fabric and layered the slits around the neck.


Once the fabric is completely dry, add another coat of Mod Podge over the fabric. 


Add flowers and enjoy your delicate lace vase.


I think these would work perfectly as budget-friendly wedding centerpieces. So if you’re planning a wedding, start saving glass bottles and be on the hunt for lace remnants.



Thanks for visiting.

Upcycling: a super simple vase

This pretty vase started as a vitamin bottle. I liked the shape so I scrubbed off the label and decided to turn it into a vase.

I decided to use an old security envelope for the paper wrap.


For this project I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the bottle. I’ve never used Mod Podge before and all I can say is “Mod Podge…where have you been all my life?”  This stuff is great.

I added a little matching collar to cover the top of the bottle and let it all dry.

I’m so glad that taking those vitamins was for a good cause.
