Message in a Bottle

by Amy Bowerman

Hello friends!  Me and DH celebrated our anniversary this week.  We were married in St. Lucia at Anse Chastanet and I love to reminisce about the clear blue waters and tropical hills of St. Lucia on our anniversary.  In the middle of my yearly daydream I realized I had never posted about the Message in a Bottle wedding favors I made for the big day.  I figured reliving the moment of making my wedding favors would be just as nice as dreaming about snorkeling in the carribean…well almost.

These Message in a Bottle favors are super easy to make with only a few supplies.  If you can pour sand into a funnel and tie your shoes…you can do this…thats how easy folks!  You don’t have to reserve the message in a bottle just for your wedding either.  These make great beach party invitations, a cute way to display an announcement, a note to someone special, or even as a home decor item.  The possibilities are truly endless!


How to make a “Message in a Bottle”


You will need:

Glass Bottles (available at most Craft stores for $1-2)

Art Sand

Small Shells

Sea Glass

Dried Starfish (optional)


Charms (optional)

Message of your choice

Start by funneling the sand into your bottle.  Not too much though…you only need about 1.5 in.

Select a mix of shells and sea glass to place on top of the sand. *Small shells work best.  If you don’t like the way the shells and sea glass fall gently shake the bottle to rearrange them.

Next, find a quote you like or type out a personal message.  Roll it up and tie with raffia.  *Make sure you roll it tight enough so the raffia doesn’t slip off when you place your message in the bottle .

Finally, top your message in a bottle off with a cork and tie with ribbon and raffia.  I attached these fun charms from Blue Moon Beads to my bottles with Raffia.  They are from the enchanted planet collection which has many coastal themed charms.  I was able to personalize the bottles a bit by selecting a different charm for each guest

That was such a great day!  If you ever get the chance to visit St. Lucia Anse Chastanet is wonderful!  Check out Jade Mountain while you are there it’s like living in a dream…at least for a few days :)

Thanks for taking this walk down memory lane with me today!

Congrats on your wedding anniversary. My husband and I honeymooned in St. Lucia, so it holds a special place in our hearts. We spent a week at Ti Kaye!
