DIY Message In A Bottle Necklaces - 12 pcs.
I brought these for my kid's bday party. It was a total hit! I also purchased the Sand Art through Oriental Trading and it was more than enough. The sand lasted through 32 of these bottles and had at least half of the sand left. Great buy and wonderful activity for the kids!

Perfect for what I wanted
My son is turning one and he loves the little mermaid so I decided to have an under the sea themed birthday party for him. We are using these for the invitations and leaving them on the door handles of the front doors of peoples houses so that they can find them. Everyone loves them.
They should come with little funnels though, I made a huge mess when I put them together.

great item for price
I used these as an object lesson for adults. Not used as a necklace or something to be handled everyday. I do not think they would last very long if they touched often. But for my purpose, they are perfect and the price is wonderful.

Great for Little Ones
I worried about our little ones getting sand everywhere, but this craft comes with the perfect amount of sand. We added small seashells before putting their message in the bottle. Instead of tying the message up with the included string, we tied the string to the bottle and hot-glued a seashell on it The kids all wanted to make another one.. Loved that this craft included the safety clasp to make the necklace.

Super souvenir gift. Too big 4 a necklace.
My supplies came with little black pieces, two different kinds. No idea what they're for...

Cute but difficult
We ordered these for a project to do at our pirate birthday party, but realized these are way to complicated for the kids!!!!!
We couldn't get the strings attached to turn them into necklaces and it didn't come with funnels! I ended up just putting the papers in them closing them up and using them as loot on our treat cart!!!!

Exactly what I expected
These are going to be used as wedding favors and it was exactly what I expected. It would be very hard to find something like this for a better price. It came on time from when they anticipated it.

Little pricey but kids loved it!
Little pricey for the product, but still good quality. I wish they would have included a funnel. The neck of bottle is small and I luckily had a small mouthed funnel on hand or we would have been using our hands wrapped around the neck of the bottle.
Kid's had a BLAST writing the note and filling the bottle.

"Plastic" means many things
I purchased these for a Pirate themed Sunday school unit I will be doing this December-March. When I saw "plastic" bottles to fill with sand and a message I had a preconceived notion... it was wrong.
There isn't anything really wrong with the product except that the plastic bottles are made of soft plastic, like a squeeze bulb on a squirting flower. I was expecting a harder, brittle plastic, like like the domes they put prizes in for dispensing in gumball machines.
These bottles will be fine for the craft I have in mind but I will NOT be using the sand included with the kit. I have little faith that the cork will stay in such a soft bottle.
