What inspired me to do this Liquor Bottle Craft Project?
The liquor bottle was a bourbon bottle that my husband received for Christmas one year. The wood top and the smooth sides made this a keeper in my book. I loved the design of it. So I decided to make it into a pretty vase for our home.

- Dried flowers
- Pearl/bling sticker ribbon - optional
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
How much did it cost to make this DIY Liquor Bottle Craft Project?
I bought the dried flowers on sale for a few dollars. The bourbon bottle was free. And the scrapbook bling stickers and ribbon were about $9.00. The total of all of these items was $11.00. But I didn’t use all the stickers and have them for another project.
How long did it take to make this liquor bottle craft project?
It took me about ½ hour to make this bottle beautiful. And now, it is displayed in my family room for all to enjoy.
How did I make this DIY Liquor Bottle Craft Project?
First, clean the bourbon bottle and let it dry. Set the bottle on its side and stabilize it. Then, I started with the flower bling. And then added the end of the other bling so that it connects to the flower bling. Trimming any excess bling sticker, I didn’t want.
Then, I added more flower bling in another place. The flowers needed a little extra hot glue to stick more evenly. The bottle was a little uneven where I placed the flowers.
Now, I added the other bling sticker starting with the flower bling. I modified and cut out some of the bling that did not fit.
Next, to add a little bling to the bottle top, I added the bling band around the top. Then, I added a few dried flowers to the bottle.
Then, I added a flower to the lid. I may not use the lid right now, but if, I decide to display it without the dried flower, it will work nicely on top of the liquor bottle.
The Big Reveal
I’m really happy with the results of this vase. It’s really pretty.
Tips on making this upcycling liquor bottle project
Below are a few tips when doing this project.
- Hot glue works well to keep the larger bling flowers on the glass.
- If you want to color the inside of the glass, you can do that before you add the stickers.
- The hole was pretty small at the top of this bottle, so make sure you pick the right dried flower that will fit inside. I wasn’t able to use all of mine.
