    I voted “They’re really cute! I would not think that they were a DIY effort,” because I do think they’re cute and look almost exactly like the originals.  I would actually think they were DIY though, just well done DIY.  If you bought the first ones, I would still probably assume that you or a friend of yours just tied the raffia and glued on the shells.

    @sharontobemarried: Have you done all of them? Because if not, I have a suggestion – could you try to cut longer pieces of raffia and crunch them a little, just so that they don’t look so straight. Then wrap them around the bottles and tie off with a knot that you then glue the shell to. I think that would make them look more like the original. I’m not saying your version is bad, it just a little stiff in comparison.

    @sharontobemarried: Glad if I could help! I think the ruffling part would help to get that “beach look”.

    Wow… I just used Beach Look about soap bubble bottles… wedding planning is a strange thing! 🙂

    @sharontobemarried: Well, I’m sure it will all be worth it! At least that’s what I tell myself every time I re-do the text (hand writing… so ugly) for the thank you cards I’ll hand out to the bridal party on the wedding day. 🙂
