And, of course, a bottle…

Just spray with chalkboard paint and decorate – do a couple of light coats so you don’t get drips.

I randomly wrapped twine around the upper part of the bottle and tied in a knot and then a bow, adding a color to accent the bow. The twine is very easy to work with. I wasn’t careful, I just wrapped it around until I ran out of twine.

Use this project to experiment – you can’t really mess this up. Just decorate it in a way that you like, in a way that will go with your decor.

I added a curtain clip on the twine at the knot on the bottle neck and clipped on a couple of different cardboard stickers as decoration. It’s the same kind of clip I used on the sign in my kitchen. I’ve used them in other crafts too – like my picture frame turned tool holder.

I found the candle holder for $3.00 on clearance at a consignment shop in Virginia. Amazon has one listed for $19.99. I used high quality cardboard stickers from Hobby Lobby (50% off, of course) for the finishing touches.

BTW…

I’ve been working on a new craft room – I highly recommend setting aside part of your house for a craft room, craft corner, or a craft closet. It’s so much easier to be creative if you have all of your supplies within your grasp.

I’ll have a reveal soon!

Pinterest has some pretty fabulous craft rooms you can glean ideas from – you should check them out. Search “craft rooms.”
Follow my board CRAFT ROOMS.

I found the bottle candle holder at a cute little antiquey country shop in the nearby town of Minoqua.

Just think.

People throw these bottles away. With little effort it’s turned into a unique decorative candle holder. The candles came from the dollar store.

Use the clip to announce a special day, leave a note for your DH, or display a random quote.

If you can’t find a clip, you can use a decorative paperclip or check out the smash book aisle for other options.

  1. What a beautiful decorator item for your home. Thank you so much for linking up to Thriving on Thursdays. I often visit our local tip shop and I'll be looking out for bits and pieces to make one of these for my outdoor area!
