Vintage Look Bottles

I love the look of antique and vintage look bottles.  I have been a big fan of the Graphics Fairy for over a year now, and make many projects with her free graphics.  I especially love using the perfume and cosmetic themed graphics.  It's very easy to do- just print out the graphic that you like on your printer, and resize it to the appropriate size for your bottle and cut it out.  I use Mod Podge to glue my graphics onto my bottles.  Sometimes the ink runs if you put Mod Podge on the front of the graphic, so I spray with an acylic spray fixative/sealer in a flat finish first, if I want to protect the label.  You can decorate with ribbon or raffia as well.  That's it- quick and easy.
Here's a selection that I did in just one afternoon.  All but two of the graphics are from the Graphics Fairy.  See the link to Graphics Fairy on the right sidebar.

I use them in this cute cabinet in my bathroom.

The photo in the top left is another graphic I printed from a website- sorry , I can't remember which one. 

I made my own custom liquid soap dispenser too, with an old plastic pump bottle and a Graphics Fairy label. 

Here's another cute old fashioned milk bottle with another Graphics Fairy Label.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this quick and easy project.

Au Revoir!!!!!!


  1. I love your bottles with the pretty labels. Thanks for stopping by and it looks like you're off to a great start on your new blog.


  2. Those look fantastic....I think I might have to try something like that to cover up some plain spray bottles. What a great idea.

  3. Oooh, la, la! I adore your French bottles, and the way that you have them displayed, too! I've used several of those images for projects, gotta love the Graphics Fairy!

  5. I love your vintage bottles! I have a few bottles I can use for this and definitely will give it a try!

  6. Hey there, your bottles are beautiful. You've certainly made a nice collection, Armelle. It wasn't your blog I saw them on, but these are inspiring!
