Vintage Charm Altered Bottle

Hi there crafty people, hope all is well your side??!!  With this blog post I am sharing my latest altered (olive oil) bottle.  I must confess I bought this particular brand of alive oil just for the bottle "blush" and could hardly wait to start altering it.  One of my favourite things to alter are jars and bottles!

Although this bottle will eventually find a home in the USA for an awesome lady I have befriended, I am in the interim submitting it to the The Shabby Tea Room to enter their current challenge # 137 "vintage charm".  Just click on their name above and you will be taken directly to their challenge link...

Hope you enjoy it...

I covered the bottle with  burlap, different netting and lace.

The pearl'charm' above is from a piece of jewelry my great grandmother gifted to me - it was perfect for this altered bottle.

A vintage label with flower soft.  A slight tear in the label to create more of an effect.

The two small crochet flowers was part of a set that included a larger one that I used for the bottom of the bottle - see the image below...

I made the pink flower myself - just added a peal center.

Lots of different types of lace

Pink and blue flowers from IAR

Pearl string and centers...

Love love this bottle; planning on making two more of different sizes as part of my gift.

Hope you enjoy, so glad you stopped by...........please leave a comment...
