I'm having a beach wedding in September. I decided to make small botanical oil lamps as favors. I bought the small glass bottles at Walmart for $1.00 a piece.

I got the sand at my local craft store as well as the small shells, plus some others I collected over the summer. I bought 2 bushes of silk foliage that looked like reeds and beach stems.

I added a little glitter to the sand as well. I mixed my own paraffin wax getting the purple color to match my tables using clear, red and blue.

I bought some corks and tags also at the craft store along with a gold paint pen.

People I have showed so far LOVE them!! I'm excited to display them on my tables.I was a little time consuming, but I got faster the more I made, plus I only had to make about 20 since my wedding is small.
