David Tutera's mini milk glass bottles with cork tops have been a popular item this year for packaging wedding and party favors. Today I'm going to share with you an idea for using these mini bottles to package earrings for your bridesmaids. I've seen so many adorable handmade earrings on Etsy for bridesmaids and I thought that it would be nice to gift wrap them in a unique way to co-ordinate with your wedding theme.
I purchased the smallest screw eyes that I could find at the hardware store and screwed two of them into the cork top as shown above. All you have to do is attach the earrings and place the lid on the bottle. Pretty easy - right?
Of course, this packaging idea will not work with stuns or earrings that are very long or really wide so make sure your earrings will fit inside the bottle before going on to the next step.
I selected four different wedding themes and decorated the bottles to co-ordinate.
For a boho inspired wedding - what could be prettier than lace ribbon, a mini gift tag and gold spray painted bottles? I used Krylon's 18kt gold plate spray paint on this bottle.
Note: use painter's tape to protect the area of glass you don't want to paint and remove the tape immediately after spraying so that the paint does not dry on the tape.
Put a little sparkle to your gift packaging by adding craft glitter. Use baker's twine to add the metal rimmed tag to the bottle.
Mini terrariums are so popular right now and if you have included a lot of natural elements to your wedding this gift packaging idea may be perfect for you. I added a little bit of moss to the bottom of this bottle to look like a terrarium. I painted a mini white gift tag with watercolour paint and attached it to the bottle using a wired ribbon.
Here's a cute idea for a destination wedding - the earrings where made using old maps and I added tiny heart candies to this bottle. A mini kraft tag in the shape of a luggage tag is attached to the bottle using natural twine.
For a destination wedding on the beach, you could use sand, sea glass or mini shells instead of heart candies.
I've been experimenting with the Krylon gold spray paints on some of our other glass containers. Here's a sneak peek at some of my favourites ... so far.
