Hello, Mitzi Curi here from Mitzi’s Collectibles, your guest blogger today.

DIY Vintage bottles
Once you have your collection of bottles and jars, you will need to complete the following materials to your project:
Mod hodgepodge Matt
copies of old labels
By coincidence, I have an extensive collection of paper ephemera, including old labels, but for this project I have selected several of The Graphics Fairy, a blog, offers a new graphic every day for the readers to download and use in your art.
I click on “advertising” and “labels” categories in the sidebar and found some great examples for this project.
To ensure that your graphic images won’t smear, if you have the Mod-hodgepodge treatment, they need to be copied with a color laser printer. Or if an ink jet printer that is used, sprayed with a fixative that you can buy in any craft or art supply store.
Before Mod Podging, I at the age of printed labels with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in “bed sheets,”, especially on the edges. In this way, you won’t see the bright, white edges to their labels, and thus, your finished project look more authentic.
To decorate the bottles, use the foam brush to thoroughly but thinly coat the back of the label with Mod-hodgepodge. Position the label on the bottle and smooth from the center to the edges with your fingers or a brayer (I always end up with two).
next, add a thin layer of Mod hodgepodge over the image. Take a damp paper towel and clean the glass around the image. This additional Mod-hodgepodge can also be removed, if you blade dry by using a razor or X-Acto knife.
I tried to choose items in my glasses, congratulated you. I chose peacock feathers for the large apothecary jar, coffee beans for the jar with the coffee label, and yarn roles for two of my other glasses. I added a little tape here and there on my vintage bottles for additional embellishment.
I hope you will try to vintage bottles this spring. You’ll be recycling bottles and appreciate the beautiful vintage graphics at the same time, thanks to Mod-hodgepodge!
