Jack Daniel’s Bottle Hack

1

As I already mentioned I love everything pumpkin, but my fall favorite is the famous Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Late. I was a bit disappointed to find out that in fact this spicy, I mean pricy, late I have been consuming every season has zero pumpkin in it, so lately I started making my own pumpkin spice lattes.

After trying many pumpkin spice syrup recipes circulating on the internet I have developed my own, which is loaded with homemade pumpkin pyre, and a right balance of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove and allspice.

However, this post is not about my pumpkin spice syrup recipe, but it is about the bottle that I “hacked” to store this syrup.

You may agree that Jack Daniel’s Whisky bottle and the label have an unique design, and I have always wanted to find the way to repurpose them.

Last night, while I was baking a huge Jack O-Lantern, I spotted an empty Jack Daniel’s Whisky bottle in the recycle bin, and this is how I came up with the idea of hacking the “JACK” bottle.

I wanted to keep some of the original design and get rid of the lettering, so I taped off the original design that I wanted to show. Next, I painted black the white lettering on the label and allowed to dry.

Using the Windows-Word Art and different fonts, I typed the text which I wanted to place on the label.

After printing I cut the text to the desired sizes and created small labels. Using a black marker I went over the edges of each label to create an aged look. I glued these labels onto the desired spots as shown, and gave each a coat of clear nail polish to stand the wear and tear.

I thought that using this bottle as a pump would be more efficient, so I used one of the dish detergent pumps from my kitchen and the pump screw fitted perfectly to the bottle screw.

Now my coffee station is perfectly complete with this unique bottle of my very own pumpkin spice syrup, the recipe of which I will be sharing next time.

Have you “hacked” something lately? I would love to hear from you.
