Bottle Toppers

I've been seeing these bottles in all the upscale boutiques and catalogs. It occurred to me that they would make the perfect vacation souvenir; especially if you've been to the shore. In my case, it was a staycation, far from the beach but pursuing one of my favorite pastimes, junking.

I found these old bottles in a cardboard box under a table at a local church rummage sale. Old bottles abound in junk shops so they aren't hard to find. If you can't get your hands on some, add a small amount of white paint to a larger amount of water. Pour the mixture into a bottle and swirl it around, then pour out. This should give the desired effect.

I found my shells at an off-price store for a few bucks.
 I glued the shells into the mouths of the bottles with hot glue. To simulate the heavy solder, I added hot glue around the top. It might help to have a couple of cups of coffee as you want a bumpy texture.
 Buy a roll of aluminum tape at the hardware store. Cut off a section big enough to wrap around the bottle. It comes about 2" wide, so cut it down to about 1 1/4". Remove the paper backing and wrap it around the gluey mouth, scrunching and smoothing as you go, Burnish the folds with your fingernail.
Paint the tape with black acrylic paint then gently rub off some of the slightly wet paint with a paper towel.

So who's to know that I didn't find a message in a bottle and a shell at the beach this summer?

I was looking for messages in those bottles!

I've started asking friends to bring home sand for me from their beachy trips. Airport security is not really pleased, but the sand comes through! Love the shells and the HOT Glue! ♥♫

Those are so cute! Great tip on the white paint too in case the right bottles can't be found...

Shelby said...

Such a fantastic idea! My mother collects sand from all over the world and stores them in bottles just like these. Now we just have to make cute seashell toppers.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Gebyar Bola
