A message ON a bottle is much more effective than a message in a bottle! A versatile and fun gift for a guy or a girl. An upcycled, recycled beer bottle (thoroughly washed, in this case it was a Guinness Extra Stout) carefully painted with 2 layers of black chalkboard paint and then primed. Ready for a funny note, an inspirational word, or a weird drawing. Also doubles as a vase! Perfect cottage chic addition to a kitchen, living room, or fun table decoration. A length of thin hemp is hung around the neck with a slip knot, so you can take it on or off as much as you like. There is a little nub of chalk tied to the end so you are ready to go and write your message on a bottle!
