I’ve wanted some new embellished glass bottles for home decor, but they’re more fun to make than buy.  Plus you can decorate them exactly how you want without having to run to a dozen different stores looking for the perfect style.  I started by buying a couple of bottles from Hobby Lobby during a half off sale, but you can use any empty bottles you have at home.

I wanted a worn, aged look so I decided to layer different paint colors.  First I painted them in Graphite Chalk Paint.

Then I added gold Gilder’s Paste with my finger – you can find Baroque Art Gilder’s Paste on Amazon HERE (affiliate link).

Next I slapped on Old Ochre Chalk Paint pretty unevenly.

When they were all dry I lightly sanded the bottles.  Instead of just revealing the Graphite underneath, sanding actually removed all of the layers of paint in some areas – which was okay because I wanted an aged look anyway.  I did reapply some of the Gilder’s Paste in a few spots.

Then I super glued embellishments onto the bottles.  (The crown is from Hobby Lobby.)  <3

I am in love with my new bottles – I think they turned out fabulous!  I may end up making more in different colors.  🙂
