Mini Bottle Project!

For a while now, I have been loving looking at how bloggers have used sheet music in different projects & have been trying to figure out how I could incorporate it into my own decor scheme somehow!!

I recently found this little home interiors shop called Raspberry Village... (I could spend hours in there), and amongst many things they sold some cute glass bottles for around £2! They were exactly like what I had been looking for.

However.....I kinda felt I could make them look a little more interesting! So, I went to my favorite craft store, got some creamy coloured paper (like the colour of old sheet music), white ribbon & some metal embellishments!

When I got home, I copied & pasted some music lines on the computer, (four lines for the small bottle, 5 for the large bottle), minimized them to the right size & printed them onto the paper.

I then cut out the music to the right size for each bottle, stuck it to the glass, fed the ribbon through the embellishment and stuck it together at the back.

Here is the finished result!

I think they sit really well on my hall table!

Quick + easy ~ perfect mini project for me! :)
