I am sharing a high-end farmhouse DIY. Join me as I turn an old liquor bottle into home decor. Let's have some DIY fun. I hope you will enjoy the video and be inspired.

This is the old liquor bottle we are beginning with. The writing is engraved and could not be removed, therefore I used chalk paint to cover it. I choose this bottle because of the unique shape but you can use any bottle you have on hand for this project.

This is after one coat of Folkart chalk paint in the color White Adirondack. I could still see a hint of the original art on the bottle so I added a third coat. This paint covers very well and I can usually cover glass with only two coats.

This is after three coats. Not a sign of the original images. This is a perfect palette for the rice paper that I will add next. I used rice paper instead of a napkin and it was easy to work wit.

Here I've begun the process of adding the rice paper. I cut out the flowers individually to make the bottle look more high-end.

This is the completed project. You can add florals or you can just sit this piece on a shelf to add to your decor.

After adding the florals and allowing to dry completely, I added a protective layer as well. Because I had everything in-house this project actually cost me zero dollars. And including drying time, the project took approximately five hours. You can make it go along faster if you use a heat gun or hairdryer. I did not use either.

The video also has a bonus wreath tutorial included as well. I think they turned out really well and I hope you enjoy them too.
