Are you a rum lover or do you need a great gift for a rum drinker? I handcraft bottles into stylish succulent planters, snack bowls, serving dishes or candy dishes.

Just add plants to create your own succulent, herb or cactus indoor garden or go to my store and order a bottle with beautiful succulents! These cut bottles make excellent alcohol gifts and are handcrafted from up-cycled bottles gathered locally. Use them as a centerpiece for your dining room table, wedding decor, kitchen table, kitchen window, patio table or even your desk!

***Scroll down to SEE REVIEWS below ***


YOU WILL RECEIVE:
- 1 professionally cut bottle- see drop down menu for options.


OPTION 1:
+ My planters are special because they include a drainage slit and I add a cork stabilizer or glass feet to rounded bottles so they don't roll. Please use the drop down menu to select PLANTER if you want a drainage slit in your bottle so you can use it as a planter. Plants will do better if you add a drainage hole. CONTACT me if you have a preference of a slit cork stabilizer or glass feet.

 

* Be sure to click through all the great pictures and see link to PLANTING VIDEO under "Caring For Your Purchase"



* You will receive a handcrafted PLANTER ONLY. Decorative elements/plants are NOT included.
*** To order a complete bottle planter kit with live plants please see the "Bottle Gardens" section in my shop***


OPTION 2:
+ Please use the drop down menu to select SNACK BOWL if you want to use your item as a snack bowl, candy bowl or serving dish and I will make sure not to include a drainage hole.


OPTION 3:
+ Please use the drop down menu to select upright VASE if you would like the top cut off the bottle making it a beautiful vase or drop in a candle!


OPTION 4:
+ Please use the drop down menu to select PENDANT LIGHT SHADE if you would like me to cut the bottom of the bottle. I provide the glass light shade you and provide the electrical components to have a very affordable pendant light!


* Let me know if you would like a label on your bottle. If you don't let me know I will send you a bottle with or without a label depending on availability and bottle type.

* Cap may or may not be included as these are upcycled bottles and some bottles have lost their caps along the way. :)

I personally:
- Used a diamond saw to cut this bottle.
- Wet sanded the edges.
- Applied a surface protectant to the bottle itself that repels fingerprints, hard water minerals... Giving the bottle a brighter appearance and making fingerprints easy to wipe away.
- Added a cork stabilizer to rounded bottles.

- All this while tending to the every need and whim of two very small children!

When Will My Order Ship?

Most items ship in 3-5 business days.  You are ordering handcrafted items that I make one at a time.  This timing allows me to handcraft, clean and package each item in your order.  Sometimes I can ship sooner if I can get my little ones to bed early :)

* Contact me if you need to pay a little more for a rush order.

 

What Happens Next?

1) You place your order online.

2) I print your order details and your postage label. 

3) I cut, sand, clean and package your order.

4) I send you an email with your estimated ship date and your tracking number. 

5) The shipping company picks up and scans your package.  Now the tracking number will show movement and your estimated delivery date. 

6) Your package arrives. Hip hip hooray!  

7) If you love your handcrafted items as much as I think you will please:

  • Leave me a review.
  • Send me pictures showing me how you are enjoying my handmade items.
  • And please share my little shop on social media.  Your friends will appreciate the unique gift ideas. 

 

Transit Time:

Most orders ship with UPS Ground, FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery.  This is because shipping glass requires large, heavy boxes and these carriers give the best rates for large, heavy shipments. 

 

UPS Ground Delivery Times: ~ 1 to 5 business days depending on carrier delays and how far you are from Arizona.

FedEx Ground Delivery Times: ~ 1 to 5 business days depending on carrier delays and how far you are from Arizona.

FedEx Home Delivery: ~ 1 to 7 business days depending on carrier delays and how far you are from Arizona.

 

Need your order faster?

If you want to upgrade to USPS Priority Mail to get your gifts faster please see the steps below. 

For a rush order please email me a screen shot of the items in your chart + your shipping zip code.  It will take me 24 - 48 hours to type up and email you a order link with a paid upgrade to USPS Priority Mail.  After you order it takes 1-3 days to sand, cut, clean and package your order.  After your order is made it takes USPS Priority Mail 3-4 days on average to deliver your order.

 

* ALL shipping carriers are experiencing holiday and Covid delays.  Once I ship on time delivery is solely up to the shipping carrier.  

 

For small orders of 1-2 items the cost of USPS Priority Mail will be only slightly higher than the cost of Ground shipping.  But if you are ordering 3+ items USPS Priority Mail will be MUCH more expensive than Ground shipping.  But USPS Priority Mail may arrive faster? 

 

 

shipping FAQs

Do you have a question about shipping charges?

For large orders you can contact me if you feel the shipping is not  I being combined correctly. Please leave the items in your cart so I can see your shipping address and the weight and size of items in your cart.

Be sure to checkout with all your items in the same cart.  If you check out multiple times with 1 item in each checkout you may be charged for multiple shipments instead of a combined shipment. 

For international orders USPS and others do charge quite a bit to ship internationally.  Also you may be responsible for a tariff charged to you by your country.  Sorry I have no way to know if they will charge an import fee / tariff or how much you will be charged.

I really don't make any money on shipping. 

I wish I could offer free shipping on every order but this is a mom and pop shop.  Small businesses don't have the buying power that a big chain store has to get special prices on postage.  

Thank you for understanding!

Are there how to videos?

YES  I have a few how to videos.  Please excuse the less than professional video quality.  A high school class needed real world experience and volunteered to make the videos for me. 

 

I want a bottle I don’t see in your shop:

* Do you have a favorite alcohol bottle? Contact me to see if I have your favorite bottle in stock. My husband complains that my bottle collection takes up too much room! I have lots of bottles that don’t get listed because I only have 1 of them or because my little ones keep me too busy to put all my items online.

* Do you have a special bottle that is just sitting around taking up space? You can mail me your favorite bottle and I would be happy to make it into the perfect gift by turning your favorite bottle into a soap dispenser, succulent planter, vase, candle holder, serving dish, snack bowl, candy dish, ash tray, pendant light shade or something you saw on Pinterest …. Just email me for details! I’m happy to do custom orders!

 

About my bottles:

* Remember to ZOOM IN on my pictures, look at the edges and see what a difference professional machining makes!

* I also apply a surface protectant to the bottle itself that repels fingerprints, hard water minerals... Giving the bottle a brighter appearance and making fingerprints easy to wipe away.

* My bottles come from friends, country clubs and restaurants. I take pride in what I make and only ship bottles I would use as gifts. We are giving new life to a used bottle that otherwise would have spent nearly 1 million years in a landfill! True! If the quality of the label or the color of the foil on the bottle neck (when included) is important please let me know and I will do my best to find a bottle that is just right for you.

 

Can I pick my bottle?

* You can pick some aspects:


- Use the drop down menu to select if you want a drainage slit in your bottle. Plants will do better if you add a drainage hole.


- (For Wine Bottles) label on or label off? Please use drop down menu to select label on or off.


- Wine bottles come in various shades of brown, green, clear... I will select a beautiful colored bottle for you. Wine bottles maybe red wine bottle, white wine bottle or a champagne bottle in shape (based on availability).  Or if you would like to select you wine bottle you check out using these special listings: 


* Bottle colors/bottle shapes are subject to availability and there may be an extra charge for special requests such as a particular brand, bottle shape & glass color.  I have to charge a fee for such requests because it can take me a very long time to unpack all my bottles to find one that meets all of your specifications.  

 

Custom and personalized orders

* For a custom order just email me with what you need. I’ll type it up as a custom order that you can purchase just like a normal listing.

Just email me for details! I’m happy to do custom orders.

How do you cut the bottles?

* I cut your bottle using professional lapidary equipment. Some of which I inherited from my beloved late grandpa Pop pop. As a teenage he started teaching me. Now I'm grown with children of my own. I'm using what he taught me to make a living while I take a break from teaching to be with my little ones. His professional equipment and and my attention to detail is why my bottles have such beautiful, safe edges.

PLEASE ZOOM IN on the photos and see how beautiful the edges are on my professionally cut bottles! I take pride in my work and this is a gift you will be proud to send.

FYI this glass was not originally intentioned for it's new purpose in life so PLEASE HAND WASH AND DO NOT PUT IN THE DISHWASHER. Enjoy!
