Roses are red, violets are blue, flowers are sweet but so is booze! This Valentines Day, think outside of the box; give your loved one what they really crave…a handmade bouquet made with booze! Luckily, for us that are lacking in the creativity department, The Decorated Cookie has put together an easy how-to tutorial for us:
A sneak peek of the finished product. I’m drooling!
Start with purchasing some mini bottles. You can customize this according to your Valentine’s taste. Vodka and fireball for me, please!
You’re going to need to make a trip to your local craft store for the rest of the supplies; sturdy container (the one shown is a heavy ceramic pot), styrofoam block(s) to fill the container snuggly, single stem faux flowers, wire cutters or strong scissors, strong decorative tape and filler to top the styrofoam.
Jam the Styrofoam tightly in the container. With the wire cutters, trim the faux flowers so that when inserted into the Styrofoam all the way to the bottom, the booze bottle will fit on the stem without much space between the bottle and the Styrofoam and the bottle and the top of the flower. (Don’t insert all of the flowers yet, just test one to see what length you’ll need to trim the flowers.)
Tape the booze to the flowers. A strong tape such as duct tape works best (but you already knew that, right men?). Arrange the flowers in the container and top with a bit of the filler.
It “should” look something like this when you are finished. The beauty of these is that you can be as creative as you’d like. You can also add candy or other treats to your bouquet. Here are a few other examples to get those creative juices flowing…
Even if you don’t have a Valentine, you can make one of these for yourself. Happy crafting!
