Vintage and old fashioned-looking
A christmas present for my sister, who wished for a vial-necklace. She also loves old fashioned and Harry Potter-ish things, so adding the scroll is a good fit.

  • How to make a vial. Vial And Scroll Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your supplies. Decide how long you want your necklace to be and cut a lenght of chain based on that.

    Now screw the eye screw into the cork, and then use a jump ring to connect the cork and chain.
    (You can also do this step after gluing the cork to the vial, but I found it easier to do this step first)

    Step 3

    Decorate your vial! The possibilities here are endless, but I decided to decorate it with gold metallic wire. First (optionally), "double" the wire, so it will be easier to spot. Then just play around with it for a bit, to figure out how you wantyour design to look. I ended up with twirling the wire a coulpe of times around the neck of the vial, and then making spirals out of the ends. To make the wire stay in place and not spin around the bottle, glue it down with clear glue. (I added glue at the two spirals)

    Now, make the tiny scroll to put inside vial. Use a scrap of white paper, on which you first brush on brown-ish ink from an inkpad. Then stamp on a pattern of cursive text using the same coloured inkpad. Repeat on the other side. I used Distress Ink, to create an aged look, but it is perfectly possible to use a regular ink pas as well. Let it dry.

    Step 5

    Cut the piece of inked and stamped paper to your desired size. Measure the lenght between the vial's bottom and neck, and make sure that you cut the paper so that the height of the scroll is less than this (to make sure it actually fits). If you want it to look even more aged you can (carefully!) burn the edges of the paper, but make sure you don't burn too much.
    Now, when you're finished decorating the piece of paper, roll it up into a scroll and tie/glue a small ribbon around it. I glued on a part of a gold ribbon.

    Finally, put the tiny scroll into the vial. Then apply a small amount of glue in the opening of the vial, and quickly add the cork.
    And then you're done!
