DIY: Message in a Bottle

Why send a regular thank-you card when you can send one as a message in a bottle?

Here’s my super easy DIY!

What you need:

  • Bottle with cork (Michael’s has an assortment)
  • Sand (if you have one, a funnel helps)
  • Twine
  • Mod Podge
  • Glitter
  • Decorative add-ons (I found some beach pieces in the scrapbook area at Michael’s)
  • Your note


  1. Glitter-ize your bottle! I wanted to give mine an ombré look with the glitter. Apply Mod Podge and then add your glitter where you want.  The Mod Podge will dry clear.
  2. Once your bottle has dried, pour in your sand and decorative add-ons!
  3. Roll up and insert your note
  4. Tie a pretty little bow and voilà!!
