Kuick, Koverup, Kraft~~

Do you ever have a favorite of something and want it to look more decorative?
Well, as I have brought a bit of aqua into my spring decor,
I have a favorite hand lotion
with an aqua pump top that I love to have handy sitting out on the master bath
But the thing is, I'm not one for clutter and I love items to be placed~
deliberately and decorative.
So anyway,
 I have this large bottle of lotion, fairly priced and one I grab for all through the day.
I need it out and handy.
But I want a pretty look to fit in with my decor.
So goes this little project.
Staring with the shape of the bottle,
I trace around the front design shape using tracing paper.
Next, I used a pretty french perfume graphic from
Sized it to about the length of the bottle and shape I traced.
Printed it off on card stock and then cut it out, the shape of the tracing paper.
And, the card stock was white and matches the bottle perfectly past the print of the graphic
covering up any small print on the bottle.
Then I  placed the new shape of the graphic on the bottle
and glued in place using mod podge.
Let dry~
and applied a coat of Triple Thick over the graphic.
Let dry flat to keep from any thick running of the TT and later add a ribbon trim.
A touch of the aqua on the pump top with  a new look.
When empty, it can be refilled.

Easy, quick and with a designer look.
Remember, any wrinkles will dry out flat when using Triple Thick.
Happy Spring
See you soon.

Your blog keeps getting better and better. I was just having a peek below about your Vintage Book Shelf. What an amazing project and I love the way it looks. I am an Epemeraholic.

I love this idea with decorating your hand lotion bottle. The Graphics Fairy is surely the best ever resource in the Land of Blog. Karen is so talented.

Whenever I visit you, I come away with my pockets filled with inspiration.

Oh- So pretty. That looks just beautiful. I think I recognize the original. Jergens? I have used it for years. I love the almond/cherry scent to makes me want to lick my fingers-----but I don't! xo Diana

It looks very familiar! It looks like Curel to me...I use the fragrance free Curel lotion and I put it away after every use. I need to do what you did and make my bottle more decorative! Very nicely done, my friend!

Lady Pamela said...
