I made these with the inspiration of the old bottles used for carnival games...either the ring toss or where you throw a ball at the bottles.  I simply made a 'slipcover' in old muslin and added several layers of white paint.

I felt like they were too 'white' at first so I grunged 'em up.  Now I think they may be too grungy!  What do you'll think?  I could always just paint 'em over.

Pattern or design used: My own design

MidwestCottage writes: I LOVE the bottles and your stencils...Where did you get your stencils? I think they might be phantom design? I have been looking and looking for them here locally and cannot find them!! I have been to Hobby Lobby and Michaels...Did you order them on-line? Thank you in advance for your help.

It's brown and has a paste wax texture. I just applied it here and there and rubbed it in with an old rag. Posted: 8:24 pm on September 10th
