Message in a Bottle Oil Lanterns
I had some fun with these. Message in a Bottle Oil Lanterns. The one in the middle does have lantern oil in it already, you can't tell can you? Sand in the bottom, a 'message' made out of parchment paper and tied with twine, topped with a brass 'couplet'/ring thing, and wick. I used electrical tape to give it a snug fit on the wine bottle. On the other two shown, these are bottles that had screw on lids. I drilled holes into them the size of my 'couplet' and gorilla glued them to it. They screw on and off the bottles beautifully. Check out my Etsy page to request a custom order if it's not something you want to try out yourself!
