Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use pliers to gently twist off the hanging loops from the bird and fairy (or whatever charms you use). File the rough edges smooth.
  • 2
    Use your hands to gently bend the dragonfly pendant into a slight curve to fit the side of the large bottle. Glue the dragonfly and other charms to the bottle in a pleasing arrangement.
  • 3
    Cut the cord or rope into two different lengths. Tie each around the neck of the bottle, leaving four different length tails.
  • 4
    Thread each cord end through the wire loop of a Steam Punk bottle, and make an overhand knot to hold it on. Trim any excess cord.
  • 5
    If desired, fill bottles with sand, pebbles, or tiny personal messages rolled up.
