Starfish In A Bottle

I recently picked up this old bottle at the flea market for $5.00

 

starfish bottle

I pried off the top and it left some rust marks even after I ran it through the dishwasher.    So I wrapped the neck with some jute twine and hot glued a starfish in the “neck”.

I love the way it turned out and only took about 10 minutes.    I stood at the kitchen counter and made it while watching Bravo….yeah, I’m addicted to that channel!    (I bet ya’ll watch some of those shows too!).

I have soooo many things I need to work on:   finish recovering the headboard in our bedroom, stain and stencil a wooden crate, finish pressure washing the adirondack chairs and paint them, clean off back patio, clean out my junk room so it can get painted and repurposed as a 2nd guest room, and that’s just the tip of the iceburg!    By doing a little project like the starfish bottle, I feel like I got SOMETHING accomplished!!!

I know I promised I’d be posting a great little recipe this week and I haven’t forgot….look for it by the weekend.

Judy, I love it! I love simple projects that you can accomplish in no time (you should submit to Courtney-A Thoughtful Place for her 5 minute project series). I too have way too many projects going.

I love it! So simple but it adds a pop. I have a TON of to-do projects, too. It seems like they're never-ending!

So simple and yet so cute. LOVE IT! I think if I was working I would get more done...seems like when I didn't have much time and under pressure I accomplished more.

Very clever...I love it! Sometimes a small project can be very gratifying huh? I have a to-do list a mile long too ;o)

Cute idea. I like the twine tied around the bottle neck. I like a craft that's easy and looks great...like yours.

A very clever way to hide the rust marks. I have some of those on some of my old bottles.......will have to try this! :)
