Message in a Bottle Valentine Decor
My den and dining room have a lot of Valentine decor. This is where my mantel and wreaths are. It sort of looks like cupid exploded in those rooms. My living room, however, does not. I wanted to add a very subtle touch of Valentines in there. I came up with this message in a bottle idea. I love to collect vintage bottles and have various sizes, colors, and shapes. I found three that were similar and decided to use them. I found some amazing old handwritten letters and poems from The Graphic Fairy and printed them out. I rolled them up using a pencil and pushed them down inside the bottles. I tied on some red paper hearts with twine and I was done. Very simple with just a touch of Valentines. It was just what I wanted.
You could probably make some real valentines to give someone using this same idea. Just write your message and roll it up and put it inside a bottle. You could add a cork to the top ( I just didn’t have any) and tie it up with ribbons and a cute tag.
