Sometimes I’m a teensy bit particular about the items that I have displayed in my house. You guys know we are still so stoked on our bar cart, but sometimes the liquor bottles that we stock it with are just… not cute. I mean, I have nothing against mid-range liquor except for the fact that the expensive stuff is usually packaged much more beautifully.

So I dreamed up a project to fix this (first world) problem of mine, and this is what I’ve come up with. I have to fess up and say that this is one of the quickest and most simple projects I’ve done recently, but only because of my awesome Silhouette machine. That bad boy can cut out just about anything, so I just designed the lettering, cut it out on adhesive vinyl using the Silhouette, and stuck it on.

If you’ve got a Silhouette and would like to do the same, just type out the lettering you’d like (I used Wisdom Script) at an appropriate size for your bottles. Select the text and “weld” it so that the machine won’t cut individual letters, but the whole word. Then just cut it out and stick it on! And if you’re crafty but don’t have a Silhouette, you might want to consider it. Seriously. This ain’t no sponsored post, y’all — I just love the thing enough to shout it from the rooftops.

Anyway! I love how they turned out and I filled those bottles immediately. Problem solved. And now, it’s time for a drink. xoxo

    I love these! I am with you on the display items, if it is not pretty it usually stays behind a door in my house, lol.

    I checked out the Silhouette and it looks like something I must have 🙂

    Very cute! I have this same bottle from ikea and have been wondering what to do with them.

    Looking good. Love the font you used for this one.

  5. You know, I’ve never had much interest in owning a Silhouette machine, but man, this really makes me think twice. I absolutely love this project! I’m such a sucker for any booze-related item or, really, the use of the word booze.

    I was straightening up our wine/bar cart this week and thought that the bottles were so ugly. This will absolutely be on my to-do list next week. And I already have some gold vinyl 🙂
