DIY babysbreath & recycled wine bottle centerpiece by Wedding Dish

How can something so beautiful be so inexpensive?  Just paint recycled wine bottles white…..I would fill the bottles with some white paint, swish around, and dry upside down so that the paint covers the whole inside.  That way you get a nice glossy finish from the outside.  Then fill those bottles with inexpensive, but breathtaking, baby’s breath.

Incorporate photos into your wedding centerpieces for a personalized idea.  I like the use of candlesticks as bases for these.
