Recently, I used an old crystal doorknob for a stopper for a bottle filled with pink colored water. It worked perfectly and I liked it so much that I started thinking of ways to really use them... and other items as stoppers. I was thinking particularly about the fragrance bottles I have that are missing stoppers; but, a little research and I realized that somebody (and maybe lots of somebodies) had already beat me to developing this "stopper" idea.
I think you'll agree these are waaay creative uses - I was especially taken with the billiard ball stoppers - clever gift idea! Father's Day is coming up soon and there might be other hobby-related things that might work perfectly for the men in our lives. Fishing lures? Golf balls? Still thinking here... An ornate metal doorknob stopper could be monogrammed for a personalized and soooo elegant wedding or commemorative anniversary gift.
And the bottles don't have to be wine bottles? Maybe salad dressing bottles? Fragrance bottles?
Bubble Bath? Linen Waters? A neat bottle of something with a special stopper would be a great gift basket starter...
