I will be attending a wedding this weekend and although cash is my go-to gift, I like to add a little something extra for fun. The following step-by-step guide is for a fun and crafty wedding gift. This can also work for engagement parties, bridal showers, baby showers (replace booze with baby bottles!) etc.
What you will need:
-bottles :I used the bride and grooms favorite beers (New Castle and Magners Cider)
-Scrap Black Fabric -for bowties
-White Tinsel Fabric-Wedding Isle of Michaels Craft Store
-Bride and Groom Bottle Covers-Wedding Isle of Michaels Craft Store
-Glue Gun and Sticks
Step 1: The Cork Letter
Use a large wooden letter for a base and begin glueing corks in random pattern until filled.
Once you finish glueing your letter will be complete and take just a few moments to dry.
Step 2: The Grooms Bottles
I used one of the (6) bottles to put the grooms bottle cover over. The rest will be adorned with bowties.
1-scrunch the bow ties together
2- Place one string through the middle and tie one around to make the bow
3- Attach to bottle and voila! You have a new bow tie for your bottle. Repeat for each groom bottle in your basket.
Step 2: The Brides Bottles
1- Cut a piece of white tinsel fabric and place around bottle like a veil. (May need someone to hold while you tie it together)
2-Repeat for each of the brides bottles.
Step 3: Place together and voila!
I put the bottles into each six pack to keep from moving around and placed into a basket. The bottles with the covers were placed higher than the rest and the Corked Name Letter was placed at the back.
