“Message in a bottle” –
the following items are needed to make this poinsettia bottle display:
a potted poinsettia with several shoots, empty glass bottles,
cord, scissors, water heated to approximately 60 °C,
blackboard paint, cool water.
spray the bottles with blackboard paint over a protective covering, and let them dry.
Tip: you may want to wear gloves when spraying.
tie the bottles together with cord in a decorative fashion, and fill them with water.
cut several shoots from the poinsettia and seal the cuts by holding the stems
in water heated to approximately 60 °C for about five seconds.
This will stop the flow of milky sap,
and your poinsettia cuttings will remain in beautiful shape for around two weeks.
arrange the poinsettia cuttings in the bottles.
Step 6 - result:
Poinsettias sparkle for family and guests displayed in bottles with this original design.
Because poinsettia cuttings keep well, this simple
and modern arrangement will enhance a side table for some time.
