I wanted to share these…they have been a labor of love between FI and I. Def took a little more work than I originally anticipated, but some of that was the challenge of drilling the bottles. Thankfully a friend had made something similar before and he came over to show us how to do it without cracking the bottles.
The trick is to use water and a glass drill bit, and go slow! lol
Bases are made out of styrofoam, they were cut and and hallowed out underneath in order to accomodate the battery pack (this was the most tedious part outside of the bottle drilling). Decorate as you like, labels were bought off amazon.com for about $12 shipped. Total between styrofoam, paint, trims, lights and labels , the cost came to roughly $5.60 a piece (and I had enough supplies to probably make 5-6 more). This made 13 total, 12 for tables and one for the owner of our venue (his is done on a bottle of Johnny Walker blue, lucky guy!)
We choose 5 sayings for the bottles,…inspirational things that mean something to us, FI even added his own 😉 I think they turned out pretty good.
