I Love You To The Moon And Back Tiny Bottle Christmas Tree Decorations.

Following on from my White Christmas bottles I had another idea, every time I say goodbye to Iris, I always ask her how much Nanny loves her, and she now knows that the answer is “… to the moon and back”, after one goodbye I wondered if I could use it to make a special Christmas tree decoration for both her and Bertie to hopefully, in time, treasure To the moon and back tiny minature bottleThe first thing I had to do was source some moon and back charms, and all I can say is thank you very much e-bay!  The ones I eventually bought cost me £1.70 for 10. They were excellent quality, just perfect for what I needed them for and I really need to buy some more before they all go.

To go with the theme I then put a mixture of tiny blue and silver stars in the bottles.
to the moon and back wish bottleThe ornamental hanger is made using a silver, metal spacer bead with a tiny eye pin screwed into the cork, with silver or milky coloured glass beads to bling up the hanging thread.
The bottles come from The Works, a pack of 6 for £1, but are also available online in bulk (72 bottles) for a discount price of £10 – if you like a bargain that’s approximately 13p per bottle.
