"Vintage" Bottle and Pillow

Vintage as in it's an empty Worcestershire bottle but thanks to The Graphics Fairy and a little twine and painter's tape....
Easy Peasy. Tore a strip of paper tape ( I got it at Home Depot in the paint aisle) long enough to wrap the bottle. Ran it through my 5" Xyron and adhered it to the bottle. Printed this beautiful French label from TGF and trimmed it around the edges, Xryon'd it and ahered. Wrapped the bottle cap in scrap of paper tape and then with twine. Tied a couple of strands of twine around the bottle with a charm I bought that I knew I'd use "someday" and voila.

I love the vintage looking burlap and linen pillows I see at home decor stores and figured I could do one myself. A linen dress in my closet has been sitting there and now I knew why I never got rid of it. Because someday, it would make a great pillow!

So snip snip and turned it into fabric ( re-use!) , downloaded this urn from The Graphics Fairy, printed it onto iron on transfer paper and trimmed really closet to the edges:

Sewed it together, stuffed it and :

Love the bottle, had to go to Amazon to see what the Xyron product was, you can see I'm not a scrapbooker. But very creative!

Thanks Flufferwuffer and Rebekah ( love your vinegar bottles). I've got a balsamic vinegar bottle that's almost empty that I want to play with.

Wonderful! I love them both!! That pillow has such a great classic look, it would work well with many styles of decor. Thanks so much for linking this up for Brag Monday.

P.S. I got such a kick out of your truffles button, too funny!!
