Vintage Style Medicine Bottles with Labels


This project came from my Pinterest things I want to make list here.  They are based on some Pottery Barn medicine bottles.




I started by collecting brown glass bottles in different shapes and sizes.  I washed them and removed the lids and labels.


I printed up an assortment of old style labels from The Graphics Fairy, sprayed them with clear matt varnish and just glued them onto the bottles with Mod Podge matt.


The Eau de Cologne label prints on a white background, so I printed an old brown paper background first, and then printed the label on top of it.


This little French label is one of my favourites.


The bottle in the wicker holder was a recent purchase for the outdoor kitchen area.


The pale pink roses are from my garden.  They are called Perfume Perfection.


These are the first bottles I made when I made the measuring tape table runner here.


So this is the start of me prettying up the outdoor kitchen.  The hanging rail and baskets are all from Ikea.


I've got a few more things I want to make from my Pinterest list, and a few more projects to complete for the outdoor kitchen.



I've linked this up with KatieSherrySarah and Carmel for the Fall Pinterest Challenge. Check out what these talented girls have made for the challenge... so much pinspiration!!

  1. I love the bottles Kylie! What a transformation with different labels. It's hard to believe they are everyday pill and medicine bottles. That hangy thing from IKEA is great too! Kate x
