Are you a whiskey lover or do you need a great gift for a whiskey 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!

 

* Be sure to click through all the great pictures and see my PLANTING VIDEO under “Caring for your purchase


OPTION 1:
+ My planters are special because they include a drainage slit and I add a cork stabilizer to rounded bottles. 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.

* 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 VASE if you would like the top cut off the bottle making it a beautiful vase or drop in a candle!


* 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. (Crown Royal vases usually come without labels and as an add on item I can add a cute saying the front like "Candy Dish" or "How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You..." CONTACT me for details!)

* This is a HANDMADE and upcycled item. Much care goes into their creation. Being handmade items from recycled bottles the labels and bottle neck foil (when included) may not be in perfect condition. You may see small marks from the hours I spent cutting and hand polishing the bottle. Please hand wash only. As you can see from the above photos much TLC when into making this beautiful and functional item. :)

 

SHIPPING:
* I ship with FAST USPS Priority Mail.
Contact me if you need a rush order. Otherwise I will ship in 3-5 days since I personally hand make each and every order.

* Unless you request otherwise, I will ship all orders containing plants Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so they don't end up sitting in a post office or postal truck over the weekend.

* Do you have a favorite bottle? Perhaps you brew your own beer or know someone who does? If you mail me their bottle I would be happy to make them the perfect gift by turning their favorite bottle into a planter, vase, candle holder…. Just CONTACT me for details!

- Added a cork stabilizer to rounded bottles.

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

How Long Until My Order Ships?

* Contact me if you need your item shipped ASAP. For non urgent shipments I need 3-5 business days to personally handcraft your order and then transit time of 2-4 days for Priority Mail and 1-3 days for Express Mail. (Steel address planters take 1-2 weeks production time)

* I offer FAST USPS Priority Mail, cheaper USPS Ground or FedEx at checkout. 

* Again please contact me if you need a rush order. Otherwise I will ship in 3-5 business days since I personally hand make each and every order myself. Sometimes I can ship sooner if I can get my little ones to bed early :)

* Unless you request otherwise, I try to ship all orders containing plants Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so they don't end up sitting in a post office or postal truck over the weekend.

 

How much is shipping?

* To get a shipping quote please add one or more of my handcrafted items to your shopping cart then proceed to checkout. This will give you several shipping options. 

* PLEASE CONTACT ME if you are ordering 2+ items and are quoted > $29 to ship 2 alcohol bottle items. Also contact me if you are charged >$15 to ship 2 drinking glasses.

* Live plant items must ship with Priority Mail.

* Small items under 1 pound can ship with slow but cheaper USPS First Class Mail.  No insurance is included with First Class Mail but you can upgrade to Priority Mail which includes up to $100 in shipping insurance.

* FedEx or UPS is slower than USPS Priority Mail, but may be cheaper for orders needing larger boxes or orders that are heavy. 

** The online shipping calculator is usually correct.  If you are placing a large order with many items you can email me and ask me to review your shipping quote.  I may need several days to review your shipping quote for accuracy.  For a shipping quote review please email me a screen shot showing all items in your order, the shipping rates being quoted and the address the items are being shipped to. With this information I can look for cheaper shipping and get back to you in a few days. 

* FYI Shipping companies are now charging “Dimensional Shipping” rates.  This means that the rate is often based on the box size even if the box doesn’t weigh very much.  I may send you a 3 pound box but they will charge box of us for a 13 pound shipment because that is the rate they have assigned to that size box.  I use the most economical boxing I can but my items need lots of padding to protect from breakage.

 

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 unless you send me a specification. Wine bottles maybe cork top or screw top, red wine bottle, white wine bottle or a champagne bottle in shape (based on availability).


* If you have a strong preference please send me your preferences in the "NOTES" section during CHECKOUT. 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.

Perhaps turn a favorite bottle or brand of alcohol 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.

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!
