Hey, hey there awesome friends! I’ve been so busy this week getting ready for CHA. Ahhh I’m so excited to share all the details with you. But before I get ahead of myself let me share with you a cute and easy Valentine’s Day gift idea that costs under $5 to make. Oh and guess what? Its from the dollar store! Are you a dollar store fan? It seems to be hit and miss with me. Sometimes I find some pretty cute things to craft with and other times I walk out empty handed. Then there are times when I walk in thinking I’m going in for something specific then come out with a bag full of things I didn’t intend to buy at all. Like this cute Message in a Bottle Valentine!
Seriously how cute is this Valentine idea? While picking up some Styrofoam balls at the dollar store I came across a Glass Message in a Bottle. I thought it was the cutest idea for a Valentine’s day gift! Plus it was only $1, how could you pass that up?
The original was not my style at all but after a little searching in my craft supplies I remade it into a cute pink vinyl heart covered bottle.
There’s pink confetti hearts inside as well as a little love note tied with pink bakers twine for my sweetheart. The pom pom trim and ribbon are from Hobby Lobby and the confetti hearts are from a Lifestyle Crafts die.
I used my die cutting machine to cut half inch size hearts in two different pink colors of vinyl. If you don’t have a cutting machine another great option is to use stickers. You can find all sorts of cute heart stickers for about a dollar everywhere from the craft store to the grocery store. For the note I used scrapbook paper, because you guessed it..there are pink hearts on it! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Your creativity always amazes me! Thanks for sharing Crystal! XO, Aimee
I absolutely love how cute this is Crystal!! You are so creative! And how fun for Valentines day!! Pinned! :)
Super cute! Gorgeous photos too.
Thank you for sharing!! I have this same bottle on my desk, and I just found your version of a revamp. I would totally agree with you that style of the bottle is also not my taste. For a dollar though,you cant buy the bottle and cork alone. I love your new remake of the bottle. I’m looking to make one like yours but send just the bottle through the mail for my parents to open on valentines day. I’m kind of far away and I hope it makes it from NC to KS with out breaking.
