Etched-Glass Vase Centerpiece

    Share a message with wedding guests by etching letters onto glass vases to spell words. Try L-O-V-E, shown here, or use the bride and groom's initials for a personal touch. Align scrapbooking letters across the bottles, then mark off a rectangle around each letter using masking tape. Etch around each letter following the directions on the etching cream. Complete the eye-catching look by filling the vases with brightly colored flowers.

    The conversation will be flowing as wedding guests admire photos of the bride and groom tucked inside a clear vase or candleholder. Arrange photos evenly on decorative paper.
