How to Repurpose a Mercury Glass Bottle

 I found this great Mercury Glass bottle at TJMaxx today.

And I had a great idea to up-cycle it!!
 I went right to my friend The Graphics Fairy and found this great vintage perfume bottle label on her site.

I printed it out and distressed the edges with Distress Ink. Distress Ink is perfect for making the edges look old. I remembered I also had this great candle I had that looks just like a cork! I'm linking to my affiliate Amazon products at the bottom of this post. 

And how lucky was I that it was a French cork!!!!

This awesome candle drips!!!
The candle is a drip candle that runs down the bottle and down the label and it looks sooo cool!
