Faux Antique Perfume Bottles (Made from thrift store salt shakers!)

The perfume sticks are a row of beads on a wire - the weight of the beads inside the bottle holds the top on.
Here are the original thrift store shakers - I pick them up whenever I find them and you should, too!
Use your imagination and a few beads to embellish and make each one unique.

Got some vintage crystal salt-n-peppa shakers lying around?  Turn them into delicate faux perfume bottles.  If you like, come check out my DIY - I made them for Mother's Day but they wold be a sweet gift or decor display any time.
