 okay so basically you want to cut a piece of string about one foot long then tie it to the lip of the bottle if you want you can dab a bit of hot glue near the knot so it holds better to the bottle but thats optional

colored water in the summer turns the bottles into little jewels but cork the top so rain doesnt get in
