Materials:From the liquor store:
- 3 Lottery Scratchers
- 4 Cigars (I got 3 average and 1 good one)
- 9 Mini bottles (I used Chambord, Crystal Head Vodka, Bulleit Bourbon, Jameson, Maker's Mark, Rumchata, Crown Royal, Glenlivet, & Kraken - My boyfriend likes whiskey and bourbon so I did more of those, but you can use whatever mini bottles you want)
- 1 Full Size Bottle (I used Tullamore Dew, but again, you can use whatever will fit in the pot)
- 1 Cigar Cutter
- 1 Cigar Lighter
- 1 Bullet Bottle Opener
From the dollar store:
- 1 Plastic Pot
- 1 Bag of Brown Paper Confetti Filler (spanish moss also works well)
- 1 Pack of 20 Red Solo Shot Glasses
- 1 Bag of Barbecue Skewers
- 2 Pieces of Floral Foam
From the craft store:
- 1 Small Piece of Burlap
- 1 Hot Glue Gun
- 1 Roll of Twine
- 1 Wood Tag
- 1 Pack of Scrapbooking Letters
- Cut the burlap to whatever width you want it, and trim the length to about 5 inches longer than the circumference of the pot.
- Wrap the burlap around the pot, and tie it in the front. I did half of a knot, then hot glued the ends down to secure it and make it look more finished.
- Fill the bottom of the pot with floral foam. Leave more space in the front of the pot to fit your full size bottle - I cut the floral foam with a serrated kitchen knife outside, because it can be pretty messy.
- Secure the mini bottles, scratchers, cigars, & red solo shot glasses to barbecue skewers using hot glue. The shot glasses, scratchers, and cigars are fine with just 1 skewer, but the heavier mini bottles will need 2 or 3.
- Place the full size bottle in the pot, and secure with hot glue and/or skewers if necessary.
- Stick the mini bottles, cigars, shot glasses, & scratchers around the bottle however you like. I did 5 layers to give it more depth, but it all depends on how you like it and how many things you use.
- Cover all of the floral foam with the confetti or spanish moss.
- Place remaining items in the top of the pot (additional mini bottles, cigar accessories, bottle openers, etc.) & place the tag (using twine, a wood tag, & scrapbook letters).
