Picture this. It’s your wedding day, the day you’ve been waiting for your whole life, and everything is absolutely perfect. You’ve got your guy (or girl) by your side, your dress is a stunner, the music is playing, the champagne is flowing, and above your head table a whimsical floral-filled aerial display marks your spot center stage. Do you love it? Then make it yours with today’s DIY mini bottle vase feature! Here’s how to get the look.

The Supplies

  • two wooden poles (length dependent on how large you’d like your overhang. Our poles were each 40″ long.)
  • mini clear glass bottles (number dependent on the length of the overhang, Our overhang took 11 bottles.)
  • fabric ribbon
  • clear string (illusion cord or fishing line) and floral tape
  • a variety of dainty blooms and ivy

The Step by Step

mini bottle vase overhang - step 1

Step 1: wrap your poles with fabric ribbon, securing them at the ends with either glue or bridal pins. Once complete attach them to a couple of rigging points with fishing line, about  inches 20″ apart, with the back hanging slightly higher than the front. We used 2 standard ceiling hooks for each pole for our rigging points.

Tip: Before committing to this concept make sure you can execute it at your wedding venue. Ask if existing rigging within the ceiling exists.

Step 2: add a base of ivy to your poles, securing it with floral tape. At this stage you aren’t looking to cover the poles completely, only to give yourself a starting point, while leaving room to work in the hanging of the mini bottles.

Step 3: start hanging the bottle vases, attaching them to your poles with fishing line. Begin by creating a starting point for yourself, hanging a few in front and a few in back, all at various heights.

Step 4: continue hanging the bottles, filling in the spaces between and around those you used as your starting points, all the while keeping with a mix of heights. To avoid a messy look, as you go be mindful to avoid overlapping the front and back bottles. Continue until you’ve reached your desired density.

Step 5: complete the look by adding flowers and water to the vases, and by filling in your ivy. When working in the additional pieces of ivy, strategically intertwine the vines to cover up as many of the points at which you taped as possible.
