Wedding - Bottle Centerpieces

Posted by BogusRed

I came across this neat little Japanese store that was selling these awesome glass corked bottles. I thought they were an exact match to the Zelda potion bottles so I bought a few to use for centerpieces. These perhaps are not the most creative of my centerpieces, but they were very quick to make.

I created one for red potion, blue potion, green potion, and Lon Lon milk. I thought it might be too hard to prepare and transport colored liquid to the venue so I decided it might be easier if I just fill the bottles with colored stones. I saw an ad in Michael's that glass stones were on sale for 99 cents a bag. I bought two red, two blue, and two green ($6 total for the stones) and each glass bottle was about $2. Plus $1.25 for a remnant fabric and I spent a total of about $13 for this centerpiece.

For the milk bottles, I designed a label in photoshop and printed it on some thicker paper. I attached the paper to the glass bottles using liquitex gel medium (thanks for the tip Mike Dutton!). I also bought a few small hay bales at a craft store to help complete the farm look.
