How to Create an Apothecary Label for a Hanging Bottle

Today I'm repurposing the vase that a single rose came in to honor of my second grandson's birth.

The vase was just too cute and vintage looking not to keep and all it needed was a little label to make it completely adorable. Here are bottles from Amazon that are similar to mine.

Using rebar wire, which is my favorite wire for hanging anything, I made a simple hanger for the bottle.

Cute but it definitely needed something. 

I checked out the printables from Knick of Time and found one I loved. Angie has farmhouse printables for anything you need and she has great ideas on how to use them. I'm copying one of these ideas here. 

I printed out the label on my laser printer then using a product called Omni Gel I created a label for the bottle. 



With Omni Gel you paint a few coats right over the top of the image letting it dry between coats. I'm thinking you could put a drop of stain in the gel to create an antique looking label too.

I painted 3 thin coats so the label would be slightly opaque. It is important to do even coats so you don't end up with parts of the label thicker than others. 

When the label was dry I cut out the image.

I re-wet the image and began rubbing off the paper on the back side until all of the paper was off. The label should still be a little bit opaque.

I applied the label to the bottle and let it dry. I didn't feel like I needed anything else to stick the label to the bottle but the company does suggest that you add another coat of Omni Gel over the top of the label.

Pretty cool!

The bottle came out fantastic! I am not being paid by Omni Gel for this promotion, I just think the stuff is great!

See how I tried it on a woven tray and a galvanized pitcher too!
