It’s fun and easy to decorate glass bottles with old jewelry. I take some of my junk jewelry stash out of hiding and add them to colorful bottles I pick up at thrift stores or flea markets! .
HOW TO DECORATE GLASS BOTTLES AND JARS WITH OLD JEWELRY
JUNK JEWELRY STASH
I have large jars and boxes full of jewelry I’ve picked up here and there. When using them to decorate things like bottles, books, or bags it doesn't bother me if there is a stone missing.
I went through all of the jewelry pulling out pieces I thought would work on the bottles. The heart necklace above was in great shape, not broken and no missing stones. I wrapped the necklace around the small green bottle and thought it looked good…..then second thoughts set in.
The decorative braid with the gold tone heart was a choker. I didn't know those things were making a comeback. I just cut the choker to fit the bottle and hot glued it in back. The heart was hanging just like this from the original choker. How easy is that.
The leaf piece on the left bottle was once part of a brooch. The blue pin on the middle bottle is missing a blue stone. The big rhinestone piece on the blue bottle was a shoe clip. In order to glue brooches, earrings, shoe clips, etc. to the bottles

Sooooo, what do you think. Ready to give this project a try? Wash out that pickle jar and wrap it in ribbons or burlap and add some bling. This project is a rewind from January 2019. A lot of you are new here and the oldies may have forgot all about the bling.
