Beachy Photo in a Bottle

Craftiments.com:  Beachy Photo in a Bottle


I think bottles are a fun and unexpected way to display photographs!  For my creation I used an empty olive oil bottle and wrapped jute twine around the top and bottom.  It conveniently covered up the logos on the bottle and I love how it frames out the photo.

I used the Black and White filter in PicMonkey to desaturate my photo and printed it on a piece of vellum.

I found the Old Gummed Parcel Post Label at the Graphics Fairy and printed it on cardstock.  On it I wrote the date and location of the photograph and distressed it a bit with coffee grounds.

All of the materials that I used I had on hand.  So for next to nothing I have a lovely new addition to my beachy mantel!  For more inspiration, check out the gorgeous photo bottles made by Barb at Turtles and Tails.
