DIY fairy bottle party favors

these little fairy bottles are super easy to make, plus fun and sparkly. what more do you need?


clear bottles with cork stopper (or screw on lids)

distilled water


glitter, sequins, metallic confetti, etc.

ribbon, lace, or twine to wrap around the neck. (i used ribbon i had on hand, but i kind of want to redo them with lace and sparkly twine!)

to make:

pour distilled water and glycerin into the bottle at a ratio of 1:1

add glitter, metallic confetti, sequins, etc. in to your bottle

close the bottle
wrap pretty ribbon, lace, or twine (or a combination!) around the bottle neck


give them a shake and set them out for your guests to take home after the party!

hold up to the light and enjoy!

christmas in new york: american museum of natural history

i was up near the american musuem of natural history today and decided to pop in to see the origami tree. it was so wonderful! i highly recommend a stop if you are on the upper west side. just watch out for all of the school field trips!
