Luau Bottle Centerpiece

Hello my Crafty Friends.  I have been super busy making these Centerpieces for an upcoming Luau for my Bestie's 50th Birthday.  Her daughter and I have been planning this for over a year now.  This is set 1 of 6 Centerpieces I am making.  They are all similar but each one is a little different. 
 The bottle is first painted a metallic blue.  I wrapped jute twine around the neck and secured with hot glue.  I made a 4" high wrap for the bottle from Purple Card stock, I then punched the edges to make a cute seashell border.  I added a layer of this blue burlap ribbon I picked up somewhere on sale.  I layered some spellbinders die cuts in pink and purple for the center.  The purple one I pinched the tip of each section to make it pop out and create a cool 3-D frame for a designer bottle cap.  In the center I created a pretty artwork with her Name on it with my computer and an added a clear epoxy over it.
The stick art at the top are all from Cricut Life's a Beach Cartridge.  The Dolphin Splash title is just one cut so I cut it twice and trimmed off the words on my blue layer before attaching together.  I added some pretty rhinestones to each cut to add some depth and bling of course.  At the very top of the bottle, I used my 1" circle punch to cut a top out of fun foam.  I then poked three hole where I wanted my sticks to go in.  I hot glued it to the up rim of the bottle.  After placing the sticks through and arranging how I wanted, I added a little glob of glue at the base of each stick to hold in place.
 I created the square Tiki face lantern from the Cricut Luau Cartridge, I trimmed off the hanger piece since they were going on the table. I lined the inside with Colored vellum panels and added some sequins to the faces where their were tiny holes, we will just place battery tea lights in these for each table.  everything is placed on a store bought 8" doily.  I added a starfish to enhance it all.

 here is a closeup of the bottle cap center, I love how folding the tips of the purple die cut created a dimensional frame for the cap.
