D.I.Y: Something in a bottle...

Hello Earthlings,


Don’t you just love it when something comes in the post for you? It’s the bomb diggidy right?! Well from this excitement led to this D.I.Y post. Yes, I know, I’m spoiling you lovelies; but you should love it! It’s something I like to call: Something in a bottle. It’s so simple. Didn’t even take two days to post it on the blog- get inn!!! So seeing as it’s a simple D.I.Y, I shall stop babbling on. Have fun creating :D

Your helpers:
- Chain
- Jump rings
- Scissors
- Mini glass bottles
- Corkscrew (mine came with the bottle)
- Glitter
- Screw eyes
- Strong adhesive
- Letter beads
- Charms
- Beads
- Flash card
*I got most of my helpers from Ebay*

NOTE: there is no rule for what should be in this bottle. It is totally up to you, whatever you like. Heck you can even put in a crushed up Oreo. The possibilities are endless. Just make them unique to suit you. But feel free to do one like mine dudes.

1. Place the screw eye in the centre of the corkscrew.
2. Start to turn it clockwise applying pressure so it will go into the corkscrew. Once it can’t go down anymore, it should look like this.

3. Take the jump ring and open it with pliers or in my case scissors- they both do the job. Put it through the screw eye.
4. Take the middle link of the chain and connect it through the jump ring.
5. Once it’s in the right place, take your pliers/scissors and close the jump ring.

6. So if you decided to use glitter, this is an easier way. Take your flash card and fold it in half.
7. Put some glitter in the centre (where the fold is).
8. Now tap the glitter into the bottle from the start of the fold.

9. Why I didn’t take a picture of how I got this I will never know, but I shall tell you haha. I basically glued letter beads together, vertically. But I did mine slanted as I didn’t want them to be dead straight – booooring. Then I used a normal bead to glue it to the corkscrew, so the word is fully shown. I used a generous amount of glue.
10. Finally, once you’ve finished filling your bottle, put a strong adhesive around the whole bottom side of the corkscrew. Stick it in, and voilà! You’re finished!

Well as I mentioned Oreos before, I’ll let you know it was for a good reason. Look at these American bad boys we got. Now they are truly the bomb diggidy. They are just ahhhhhh soo nice, you need these in your life ♥_♥.

Well dudes, that is all I have for you today. Okay ,now now, stop the crying, it’s okay *LOL i joke*. There shall be more ahead. Hope I have inspired you to get creating. These are so cute, I love them. Another good thing that is amazing about this is that there is no wrong or right way. Anything looks good in this! Just go crazy. Love you all earthlings.

Live Long and Prosper Dudes ♥
