 Repurposed sauce bottle?

Don’t hastily throw out your sauce bottles. Clean it up thoroughly and follow this tutorial for some easy project.

I used up all the oyster sauce the last time I cooked and as I was about to throw it in the recycling bin, I figured it had a really nice form. So I placed it aside first and when I was ready to work on some DIY, I repurposed this sleek looking bottle.

I’m pretty sure you have some nice looking bottle of sauce in your pantry. Well, you don’t have to pour it all out on the next meal you’ll be cooking, your kids may not forgive me.

When it is all empty, you can grab the rest of these materials :

Empty sauce glass bottle
Gold paper
Mod Podge Glossy
Sponge brush
Round template ( I just grabbed a lip balm and used it for this diy )


This sauce bottle will be worthy to be put on your mantle or chest of drawers or in your living room area in just a few steps.


Be sure to thoroughly clean the sauce bottle and dry it well. Here is how my bottle looked like.

Prepare your scissors, pencil and gold paper.

Grab your gold paper and trace anything that has a round bottom and use it as a template for making dots. In my case, I just grabbed a lip balm.

Cut up all the gold circles. You might want to use small craft scissors. It would be easier to cut with it.

Now, flip the gold paper dot and apply Mod Podge on the back area. A little trick I do when I work with Mod Podge is I place cling film ( or food wrap ) on the surface I’m working on before applying the podge on the material. That way you won’t have all the sticky mess on your work table.

These dots make the difference.

Press the dots on the bottle. You can place it in random areas. What I did was I lined up the dots at the top and at the bottom then just scattered them around the body of the bottle.

When all the dots are glued to the bottle, apply Mod Podge all over the bottle to seal it.

Then grab some ribbon from your supply. I happen to have some gold ribbon left over from Christmas.

Place some hot glue on the rim of the bottle and wrap a piece of ribbon around it.

That is it! Wasn’t that super easy and so budget friendly. After DIYing the bottle, I went to the front yard and picked up some twigs.
