DIY Vintage Bottle Wall Art
Let's have fun creating a gorgeous piece of wall art that is super easy and very budget friendly. My dilemma was that I had this empty space above my arched hutch and it needed a little something to fill it. I looked for months and I couldn't find anything to go there, or if I did, it was way too expensive. SO, the next best thing was to create something on my own. The good thing about that is it was very reasonable to make. I already had the bottles on hand from an antique shop years ago so I only had to purchase the birch wood branch, the corbels and the cord.
The first ting you want to do is measure the width of the wall. We did that and then divided the number by 2 to get the center.
After we figured out the center we then went 11 inches in on each side to place the corbels. I found these cute wooden corbels at Hobby Lobby.
Once we got the corbels hung, we placed the birch wood branch on top of the corbels.
I used a translucent cord from Hobby Lobby to secure the bottles to the branch. I simply tied the cord around the neck of the bottle where there was a groove. I triple knotted it for safety. I love how it looks as though the bottles are just free floating.
I took the birch wood branch down while I installed the bottles. I just braced it over two backs of chairs and it worked well.
I added some plum eucalyptus to the bottles for a little Fall flair! I cannot wait to change the flowers out with each season. In the winter, I am going to put twinkle lights in them and put snow inside the bottles.
I love how it turned out. It was such a fun and easy project to do! Let me know what you think!
