Here’s a quick and easy gift idea!
Take an empty bottle : wine, seltzer, sparkling juice, mineral water, etc….
If the label looks cool, keep it on. If not, you can remove it with soap and warm water.
Take a strand of 50 lights and thread them down into the bottle.
About half way in, the lights begin to get stuck, so you need a stick or something long and thing to help stuff them down the rest of the way. I used a wooden dowel.
Then you can decorate the neck of the bottle however you like.
I made several of these bottles for Knox’s nurses and therapists. I kept them simple using different ribbons, jingle bells, and bits of flower picks.
It’s also a good idea to secure the cord in the back so the light strand won’t come out.
Hope you’re having a week full of yuletide pleasures!
