DIY Starbucks Coffee Bottle Craft
I had my dearest friend over for a visit and my sweet hubs brought some Starbucks Iced Coffee home. I rounded up the empty bottles to throw away and I thought... hmmm I bet there is a project out there for these guys! Well there is a project for EVERYTHING so I was able to find something real quick!
Now these cuties showed up in my Google Image search and I wanted them right away! I am obsessed with turquoise and orange right now and I had some left over twine from when I made a few plant hanger... perfect! Thank you to Redefining C for the uber awesome idea! Now I am doing mine a little different but they still turned out similar.
I used the tall bottles and poured white paint inside and swirled the bottle around until the entire bottle was covered. I let it dry upside down for a day to make sure it was dry. I haven't done anything with the smaller bottle yet! I painted the lids brown. (Funny: My husband thought they were little chocolate candies and got excited! ha) Sorry dear you can't eat these!
There are two different ways I played around with. The first one is the transfer method. I transferred the letters to the bottle then tried to paint them but the letters did not look good. Now a sharpie would work just fine!
The way I ended up doing is cutting out the letters individually (I left a little flap so I could hold that and not get paint on me). I painted the letters with 2 coats to get even coverage.
I then cut a square of packing tape a little bit larger than the letter. Don't worry about the little air circles. You can't see them once the letters are on the bottle!
I taped the letters onto the bottle starting from the bottom of the bottle. Do this to all three bottles. Recap the bottles with the lids and wrap some twine or a ribbon or something fun around the top!
Viola! Instant cuteness!
Very good idea. With all the material available on this subject, I am very surprised nobody thought of this wonderfully thought out idea before now.
In a throw away society, people rarely think about what happens after they toss their plastic water bottle in a trash can instead of the recycling. After many years of personally using plastic I decided to make a small change to a more environmentally friendly life style: a glass water bottle.
