Yard sale bottle into a crafty creation

I bought 5 of these (different styles) at a yard sale for 50 cents a piece. I knew I wanted to add beads to them - or maybe alcohol inks and glitter.

Well - for my first one - I tied wire to the top of it - added a charm here and there, inked and placed a couple rub-ons right on the glass.

I glued various beads in place to the wire that winds around the bottle.

It was experimental - and have other ideas for the remaining 4. For now it stands empty - but I would like to fill it with colored sand or colored beads or mini marbles... hmmmm still thinking
