DIY Apothecary Bottles for Bridesmaids

Happy Wednesday! We’re helping you cross ‘awesome bridesmaid gift’ off your wedding to do list with these oh-so-sweet, ultra-girly DIY apothecary bottles from Formal Fringe. The tutorial – which includes a free printable! – uses clear glass bottles (from Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, or other local craft store), transfer labels, and decorative drawer pulls – my latest obsession. I recently visited Hobby Lobby and discovered an entire aisle dedicated to drawer pulls and decorative knobs; I’m in love. In this tutorial, Taryn adds water and a splash of red food coloring to give the decorative bottles a pink effect. As an alternative, we think it would be fun to add your favorite pink bubble bath. Wrap up the bottle in a pretty ribbon, attach a luxurious loofah, and gift to bridesmaids as a spa-inspired gift. You could also add a few drops of essential oil as a chic tabletop fragrance diffuser. Read on to see more…
