DIY Fall Decor

Tis the season to begin decorating in the Autumn spirit. My wife had a genius idea to make decorative glass bottles to accompany our other Fall decor. Instead of throwing our Pumpkin Cider bottles away, she transformed them to fit nicely in our living room. They are incredibly easy to make, and we made two sets for about $25 (bottles included!).

Things you need:

-4 glass bottles (we used Pumpkin Cider bottles from Aldi - $1.99 each)

-Burlap (ours had a decorative black print on it)

-Wooden letters (F.A.L.L.)

-Paint (to paint the letters)

-Fake leaves/flowers

-Decorative charms

-Hot glue

-Wire cutters


Step 1: Gather Supplies

-Clean the labels off of each bottle. It’s easy to use Mineral Spirits, or just soak them in water for a day

-Gather all of your supplies for the project

Step 2: Paint Letters

-Paint each letter - pretty simple

Step 3: Add Burlap

-Measure and cut a piece of burlap to fit completely around each bottle

-Hot glue the burlap piece to the bottle where it overlaps

Step 4: Decorations

-Decorate each letter with any gems or decorative pieces you have laying around

-Cut off several leaves/flowers from your bouquet with the wire cutters, and put aside

Step 5: Put It All Together

-Glue each letter to the center of the bottles

-Glue the leaves/flowers/berries, etc. to the bottles as well

-There is no right or wrong way to do this; whatever looks best to you!

Step 6: Finished!

Ooo very pretty! I love the combo of the burlap and leaves with the letters. It has such a nice homey feel. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much! Its definitely a fun and easy project and cost quite a bit less than most of the fall decor I was looking to buy this season! So thats a win in my book:-)
