Gold Leafed Upcycled Bulleit Whiskey Bottle Planters

It’s no surprise that we love our whiskey but we also love the bottles!

We have a tendency of keeping all our empty bottles and storing above the kitchen cabinets. Anyone else?The time has come to put a couple of our favorite bottles to good use!

If you’ve gold leafed before, the concept is really easy.

How to:

  1. Drink whisky.

  2. Remove label and let dry. Tip: Run under hot water or use Goo Gone.

  3. Apply a thin even layer of gold leaf adhesive on the raised lettering on the bottle. Let adhesive dry until tacky. TIP: Follow the instructions on the adhesive. Generally, the adhesive will become translucent when tacky.

  4. Lay sheets of gold leaf onto the adhesive, press and remove backing. TIP: Cut the sheets into smaller pieces for easier application.

  5. Use a soft paint brush and gently brush off any extra gold leaf.

Add additional embellishments:

  1. Wrap rope around the bottom of the bottle and secure with hot glue.

  2. Use a long piece of thick wire and wrap around the neck of the bottle to hang.

  3. Fill with water and give your plant a home. Tip: The philodendron is one of the few houseplants that can grow in water permanently.

We’re absoulty in love with the way they turned out!
