For some time now,
I have saved bottles....
whiskey bottles to be exact
which was rather irritating to the darling...
just taking up bar space....
I just knew they were going to be repurposed
at some point in time!

So...I introduce the Christmas dinner centerpiece! 

This is a rather easy DIY project
and the end result will be whatever your imagination can dream up...
I used three old glass bottles, Mod Podge, 
ribbon, glitter by Martha Stewart, glue and a few ornaments.

Using your Mod Podge,
take whatever image you have chosen
cut to the size of your bottle
and adhere the image to the bottle. 
Allow to dry and then
outline with glue, 
then sprinkle on your glitter! 

I used sheer ribbon I had on hand
and tied it around the bottle neck.
Then I took a fine twine and attached
glittered snowflake ornaments around the top
of the bottles.

I placed the bottles on one of our silver trays
which was a wedding gift.

I added a white candle
in a mercury glass sphere.

Went out to the garden for few snippets of
fresh Rosemary

and there you have it! 

I chose old
Christmas hymns sheet music
as the design

It looks old fashioned to me

Better yet, it did not cost a penny...
everything I had on hand.

Hospitality means welcoming those we love.


  1. This is a very pretty idea! It looks very elegant and old fashioned. Your white deer and the holly 'wreath' on the table cloth just add to the centrepiece. Have a great day! Pam

    1. Hi Pamela! Thank you so much for visiting today! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

  2. My husband says to me after I showed him what you did with the whiskey bottles, "if you need any help emptying whiskey bottles for next year let me know"
    Love the Carols...

    1. That is too funny Ellen! Perfect response to a DIY...Merry Christmas!!!

  3. They look so beautiful arranged on the silver tray. I used music sheets to wrap around the tall candles but I just used double stick tape. Your idea is much grander! I love it! Hugs, Diane

    1. That would be lovely Diane!I would love to see your candles! Thank you for visiting today! Merry Christmas!

  4. What a great project and I think my cats would leave this alone...at least I hope so. XOXO

    1. I know what you mean Susan! Big hugs and Merry Christmas dear friend!

  5. I just love this!!! I, too, collect pretty bottles! I MUST do this!!! Last year I gifted rosemary infused olive oil in my collected bottles! I'm saving this idea for next year when I hope to make homemade vanilla extract as gifts!

  6. These turned out very nice!!


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
