Crafty Keepsake How-to: Make a Glass Vial Treasure Bottle Necklace

dab strong glue on the inside of the cork stopperNext, put a dab of very strong glue around the perimeter of the cork, where it will be touching the inside of the glass vial. You don’t need very much because it’s strong stuff, and also because you don’t want excess glue to seep out under the cork inside the glass bottle, where you can’t wipe it away.

Push the cork into the glass vial, and carefully wipe away any excess glue that might seep out over the top of the cork. Let the whole vial rest while the glue cures.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.

  1. I think you’re referring to Moonstone Beach in Cambria, CA. You’re right; it’s an amazingly beautiful place with unique “sand.” Fortunately we live only 40 minutes away and it’s one of our most favorite destinations. 🙂

    • Ooh, close! This one is Bean Hollow State Beach, a little north of there. Next time we’re in California, I’ve got to convince my in-laws to take me down to LA so I can try yours on the way!
