Party planning is one of my favorite things to do. I just love coming up with lots of fun, creative details to make the event extra special. It’s especially fun when the party has a theme! These cute Message-in-a-Bottle favors would be perfect for a mermaid or ocean themed party. They could even become an activity for guests to make their own to take home!

  2. The first step is to fill your jars with sand. I created layers using natural sand I brought home from the beach, and some blue colored sand I had on hand. Using a funnel, pour the sand into the bottles, one spoonful at a time. Alternate the different colors to create. Fill each bottle about half way.

  4. Next drop in some seashells. Use the end of the spoon or a chopstick to carefully arrange each shell in the sand.

  6. Finally, you want to add your message! Cut a small piece of paper. I cut mine to be 2”x4”. Write your message, roll up into a scroll and tie with baker’s twine. Then carefully drop it into the bottle and again, use a spoon end/chopstick to arrange it inside the bottle. Seal with a cork.

  8. To give these as party favors, I decorated each bottle with a [url href=”https://www.evermine.com/tags/preview/HTMD23-19/” target=”_blank”]custom scallop favor tag[/url] in the style, Mermaid.
