What a cute idea! I know some brooch bouquets are made by cutting a styrofoam ball in half and poking the wires and flowers through it. I found a tutorial here, what if you modified it to use the mini bottles and some fake flowers instead of brooches?

ETA: At Michael’s they have magnetic bout bases, I picked some up for about $3, I think.

You can get a bridal bouquet holder at a craft store and use that instead of the styrofoam ball. Cover the foam with something before you start inserting the dowels, or fill in the bare spots after with moss. Keep the dowels  on the shorter side so the bottles fill up the space.

I was thinking on the same lines at julies1949. I think it would stabalize the bottles a lot more.

Could you wrap the necks of the bottles with floral wire, and then stick that into a tube of some sort, and cover?

Ok, so I totally blame the OP… I spent $43 on mini bottles yesterday and about $40 at Michaels to work on these, I have had so much fun with it and we are going to use them for the Rehearsal.

I will upload pictures as soon as I can find my damn camera cord. In the mean time, I have so far made 3 boutenierres and 3 bouquets. For the bouquets I used a flower bush from the Dollar Tree that I already had, and used floral sticks with the wire and have the bottles hanging under the bouquet. I did 2 bottles for the Maitron and Maid of Honor. My Bridesmaid does not drink alcohol at all. My bouquet has 3 bottles hanging from it.

For the boutenierres, I used 3 leaves and a small flower spray, used clear glass tape, to hold the flowers to bottle, then hot glued a pin back to it, I hung it on my shirt and it stayed with no problem. FI likes them, so why not. My picky Matron of Honor thought they were cute as well, my Maid of Honor is my 23 yo daughter who thinks I am just wasting money, in the mean time I told her when it is her wedding she can decide what she wants to be done, this is my wedding, she isn’t paying for it, and I will have fun if I want. Call me momzilla if ya want, but geesh, we are not in debt, we owe NOT ONE PERSON for this wedding, and I didn’t get to do this the first time around, my ex planned everything.

Sorry it is so big, and isn’t a great shot, but you can see the 3 bouts that I have made so far… I love these.
