Message in a Bottle

Valentine’s D.I.Y Day #9 by: Katie Collins – Décor Assistant

Message in a Bottle

If you are looking for a creative way to show someone you care on Valentine’s Day, this is a fun alternative to the impersonal and repetitive cards found in stores.  You can take items like old glass bottles and wine corks that are lying around your home and personalize your message to that special someone, family or friends at very little cost. This can be used not only on Valentine’s Day, but throughout the year for birthdays, other holidays, or just to tell someone you were thinking about them!

This endearing idea came to us from Better Homes and Gardens. These bottles will make a perfect Valentine’s gift or decoration around the house.

What you’ll need:

  • Vintage glass bottle
  • Cork top
  • Letter, candy, stickers, paper hearts, etc.


Fill your glass bottles with whatever you would like, whether it is a letter to that someone special or candy and paper hearts.  Next cork the bottle and set out as decoration or give as a gift for the holiday or a birthdayI
