The bombers were waxed with cheese wax. The labels were just some fancy Hobby Lobby paper fatigued on the edges by folding and tearing them apart, then adhered with spray-on Elmer's glue
I intended to make my own crate out of some scrap wood I had, but I stumbled on this while I was at Hobby Lobby, with a discount coupon it was only $6... There was no way I was making something as nice and sturdy for that cheap (not including my time). The crate was given a quick stain with some black tea to make it look a little less like fresh white pine. (I like using coffee and tea to stain things in order to get a fatigued/antique look on them)
The crate was a little larger than I intended to build (it happens to perfectly hold nine regular 12oz bottles), so I decided to add pint glasses to the gift.
But it seemed too cheesy and impersonal to just give them two pint glasses, I wanted to give them a reason to keep them as well. Bam! His and Hers TCB glasses. This was done quite simply with some glass etching paste purchased at (you guessed it) Hobby Lobby with (you guessed it) a discount coupon. The compound is just smeared over some cheapo letter stickers.
I wanted to be sure that the Bride and Groom understood that I made these and didn't just purchase them at Bed Bath and Beyond or something; hence the TCB marking.
Another poser shot of the glass etching:
And then finally, for both form and function I added the cloth to reduce rattle and make it look more wedding-ish. This was just a rough cut scrap that I quickly went around with pinking shears. The edges got a froo-froo look that I imagine the Bride will appreciate and won't fray nearly as quickly.
