August 28, 2010


Thought I would post a fun and easy junk project today.....this was created using an old glass decanter found at the thrift store.  I simply added some rub-ons that I had on hand and glued a vintage earring to the front.  I am in the process of making some lavender scented bath salts to fill these with for Christmas.
Have a happy day!

This is gorgeous! I've often given pretty recycled bottles of scented bath salts, but never thought to use the rub-ons. Great idea!

Hi Janis,
Another pretty from you! You sure know how to dress up a plain bottle.
Where do you find the rub ons. I used to find them at Walmart and now they quit carrying them.

So pretty! Someone is going to feel 'oh so special' when they receive this!

Allison said...

What a lovely idea! Your are just so creative! I would be thrilled to receive this as a gift. I think homemade gifts are so special. And, the lavender salts sound wonderful. Where do you get those rub ons?

Jane said...

Great idea. I LOVE using rub-ons. They are such a quick way to add some professional looking lettering and design. I've never tried them on glass though so you have inspired me!

Heidi said...

I would love that for Christmas, incredible idea!!

Lady Pamela said...

Thanks for the tutorial, Janis. My daughter would love this for a gift. In fact they all would. I better get busy. I think we have the same plant in the background. It is the one plant in my garden that is thriving.
Gotta go thrifting again!

Lisa said...

Really awesome! I need to start creating more. I was organizing my supplies this morning and I really need to use them!! I finally got and was able to read Somerset Home this morning your goodies are great! It is so fun to see those I know in the mags!
Hugs, Lisa
