Making a Centerpiece From Medicine Bottles

Mint Juleps 'n Muddin':  How to make a centerpiece from medicine bottles


Several medicine bottles of the same size
Hot Glue & Gun
Spray paint that will adhere to plastic (any color you wish)

1 jarred candle

Floral water beads

First, find the jarred candle that you want to use. I would suggest one at least 4” tall and about 3 ½” in diameter.

Next, determine how many medicine bottles you will need. Sit the candle down and place bottles around the candle.  Hot glue the sides of each bottle to the next. Allow glue to dry.

Flip circle of bottles upside down and spray paint; making sure to cover every one completely. You will need 2 to 3 coats. Allow to dry.

Finally, flip bottles upright, and place candle in the center.  Fill bottles ½ way with water beads and put any flower that you wish in each. Picture below, I used every other bottle for placing flowers.
