I've been really impressed by some of the creative wine bottle stoppers I've seen lately. This weekend gave me the perfect opportunity to try one of my own.
I was invited to a cocktail party to celebrate my friend Caroline's wedding, and I needed a meaningful gift. Her wedding theme features fleur-de-lys. In fact, I had the honor of creating her wedding cake topper using that theme. So how does one make a wine bottle stopper?
How to make a wine bottle stopper:
- Start with a silver-plated bottle stopper wedding favor with an open heart on the top.
- Unscrew the metal parts from the rubber stopper.
- Fill the open heart with clay and bake.
- Cover the whole piece with your decorative finish.
