Stamped Burlap Bottles

Hello ribbon lovers! It’s Sandy here with a home decor project this time.

Stamped Burlap Bottles

I was in an antique shop last fall and saw the most beautiful bottles wrapped in heavy duty jute – and stamped! And I just knew I had to figure out how to replicate one – or a few!

An important tip I can’t emphasize enough: if you plan on stamping on the bottle after you’ve got it beautifully wrapped, choose as flat a bottle as possible the first time. It takes a bit of a touch to get the feel down, and once you mess up – well, you get to start the wrapping all over again! The Perrier bottle I showed at the end was a near-disaster — there was so much roundness to the surface that I missed stamping entire sections, so I had to go back with a marker and redraw the missing parts. Ooops 🙂

Has this inspired you to consider altering an item in your home? A soap dispenser, a lamp, I can picture so many items in my house getting all wrapped up in Twisted Burlap soon! What might you try? Leave me a comment!

    This is pure genius! Wouldn't a set of canning jars decorated like this be the cutest embellishment containers in a craft room?

    I think this is a wonderful project–I can see doing this with a theme (baby shower) etc with a quilled flower on a stem …perhaps using those cute lil' wine bottles…very cute I will have to try this–thanks for the inspiration!

    Uber coolness!!

    Interesting idea…looks like fun. I never thought of burlap as a "ribbon" before…always open to new products ans uses.

    Another amazing idea combining stamping with May Arts products!  Love this as I'm a bottle collector and this would be a nice addition to make some bottles more interesting.  TFS!

    I love this idea.  I have some candles that need a bit of extra color.  I think I'll lay the jute on some packing tape so I can work on a flat surface.  I don't trust myself to stamp on curves.  😉

    Your project came out really nice. A soft beachy look. Lighthouse was my favorite!
