Creations, Birthday Bottles




I am just crazy about this Birthday tissue paper, and bought it one day with no particular plan in mind…I also bought some other bright and happy prints and stashed them away for a future project





I also save interesting bottles, like this opaque black 19 Crimes Chardonnay…the label caught my attention and I actually do like this bold “hard chard” from Australia…

There is an interesting story about the label that you can read here

Also, there is a whole line of Australian 19 Crimes wines named after British criminals who were transported to Australia for their crimes…many fascinating stories you can read here.  There is even a App you can put on your phone that will show you the story behind each label and crime when you scan the label.  How cool is that???  Read more here

Thank you Jeanie, the Marmalade Gypsy for sharing your wine knowledge!



I have decoupaged several of these square whiskey bottles too, so I decided to make “Birthday” bud vases for 2 of my BFFs for their March birthdays





It was kind of a hot mess when first applied, but once it dries it settles down





I painted some mock birthday candles on the wine bottle neck and painted the glass swirls on the whiskey bottle neck





I also added some thin colored baker’s twine for a finishing touch







Bright flowers and a cupcake stamped tag






And a Birthday Cake white chocolate bar {Trader Joe’s}





Just a silly simple gift…





And they both loved their Birthday Bottles!!

    What a sweet idea for your BFF’s! Did I ever tell you that Joe makes me memory bottles 🙂 I think I am up to 10.


  2. These look absolutely gorgeous! What a lovely and creative idea thank you 🙂


  3. Jenna, a handmade gift is the best! The bottles are so cute and I know your friends loved them. Not only are they cute and fun, they are one-of-a-kind!


  4. Jenna, I buy the wine for the label too. I’m sure this woman never dreamed she would inspire a wine label 150 years later! I always love your bottles and these must have made your friends very happy! Linda


  5. That’s a fun idea — really cheerful. Wouldn’t it make a great birthday party centerpiece? I’ll have to remember that one. One of my friends collects (and got) all the 19 Crimes corks. And they have a wild app that if you put your phone by it in the store (or something — the store guy showed me) the person on the front “talks” and tells you about their crime!

    Love the 19 Crimes bottles. Watched the little clip on their site. I don’t drink but I have bought a couple wine bottles I liked and used it in cooking.


  10. What a fun idea – and a perfect way to deliver flowers!! AND white choc bars at Trader Joes? I am going there tomorrow – I LOVE white choc!!


  11. These are so cute I just had to pin them! This would be fun to do for adults or kids. 🙂

    Adorable tissue and bottle upcycling! Wine marketing has come a long way 🙂
