Milk bottle wedding ideas

We partnered with American Bridal to create a few really cute ideas using one of their many, many, many cute and inexpensive wedding favors, the vintage milk jar. Crafty brides, you’ll love this! You can take a modern approach by painting them, like we did here, and use them as decor, or you get a little more clever and create a cute package of essential oils for your bridesmaids. Aren’t they a super cute gift idea for showers or a day-of bridesmaid gift?

Turning the bottles into wedding decor is super easy. Grab a few paint colors that go with your theme and have at them. You can add festive tissue paper flowers like we did here, or use this DIY storybook paper roses tutorial and fill the bottles up with those. Cute, right?

When you buy the vintage milk jars off the American Bridal site, they come complete with cute cork stoppers. All we did was drill a hole in the center to hold a dropper in place, add a simple label and voila!

In the end, wedding favors are always fun to personalize. Your guests appreciate it, and really, it’s a fun time for you to get together with friends & family and make a crafting night out of it. A few other of our favorite wedding favors from American Bridal that you can totally get creative with:

Lip balm favors – great for a bridal shower, and all you need to do is design a personalized label

Ceramic jar favors – we see lots of couples giving homemade jam or honey as favors, so how cute would they be in these?

Apothecary jar favors – lavender infused salt? Totally!

There really are endless wedding favors to choose from, so pop over to American Bridal to check ’em out!

  3. These are just so cute!!!! Great use of recyclables!

  4. My favorite is the aromatherapy idea.

  5. i am throwing my sister a bridal shower and wanted to know where I could find the colored essential oils? Does anyone by any chance know where to find it?

  6. Everything in this post is just gorgeous! Bookmarking it. I especially love the painted bottles, partly because it’s so rare to find subtle uses of metallic detail in decorative art, yet it’s so elegant when done right.

    We’re currently going a little crazy for upcycled home decor at Kollabora.com, the crafting and DIY community. I’d love to see some of your projects over there! If you’re interested, take a look at the site and see what you think. We’d all be thrilled if you joined up.
