D.I.Y. Alcohol Bouquet

On Sunday I went to one of my good friend's graduation party, he's one of my best friends at school and over the years has become so close with my family too, I knew as a family we were going to get him something more serious (we went with a nice tie!), but I wanted to give him something fun too.  My sister had seen an alcohol bouquet somewhere and gave me the idea to make one for him.  I had so much fun making it and it made a big hit at the party.  This is a great gift for graduation, 21st birthdays, and more.  It would also be perfect to pair up with a Hangover Kit!


Supplies:
-A vase or bucket
-20 Wooden or metal dowels
-A block of styrofoam or floral foam large enough to fit the vase or bucket
-8 to 10 assorted mini liquor bottles
-Mini candy bars
-Hot glue gun
-Paint (optional)
-Ribbon (optional)
-Cellophane (optional)

Instructions:
-Optional: paint the vase or bucket with a school logo or phrase, I painted our school's logo on the one I made, allow to dry.
-Use the hot glue gun to glue the mini liquor bottles and plastic shot glasses to the dowels.  Make sure to use enough glue (aka a lot of glue) so that they will stay, allow to dry.
-Optional: Cut pieces of ribbon and glue individual pieces to the dowels, once dry curl the ribbon.
-Place the styrofoam or floral foam at the bottom of the vase or bucket.
-Take the dowels with the bottles and shot glasses (and ribbon) and stick them into the foam, make sure they are far enough in that they will not move.  When placing the dowels make sure to arrange them at differing heights.
-If you are transporting the alcohol bouquet somewhere far, like I was, I recommend wrapping the entire bouquet in cellophane and tying it off with ribbon (picture below).
-Enjoy!
~Use pictures for reference.


This was fairly easy to make and I had a great time doing it.  An alcohol bouquet is such a fun gift to give and I love it for guys because they can be so hard to buy for!  I'm thinking I might have to make another one for my sister's 21st birthday and add some glitter to hers.  If you have any upcoming grad parties this is sure to make an awesome gift!

  22. The author has discussed a very resourceful topic in times of the pandemic. We, as a nation, cannot keep our children out of schools forever. Hence a plan needs to be implemented where children can safely go to school without getting mass infected. However, it is not recommended for parents or children to go physically to the shops for book supplies. Hence there is a need for an online book shop such as KitaabNow. Budapest apartment
