Yes I AM talking about Snapple. And to be more specific, I am talking about Snapple Trop-A-Rocka. I CANNOT get enough of that delicious stuff! And sadly, I can never find it at the store. They are ALWAYS sold out -- so when they do happen to have it, I buy several cases...sometimes I buy it all -- even if I have to dig to the back of the shelf to get it. Yes, I am THAT lady at the store. Embarrassing. Well since I'm guzzling this stuff all the time I had been recycling all those lovely glass bottles....until recently. After taking a longer look at the bottles, I realized they were really cute -- they had a lovely shape, plus I had like a bazillion of them.
Now, I'll warn you - this is not an original project. I've seen people do this with other bottles...so unfortunately, I'm not the genius behind it's originality. But I did make it my own with some added decorations.
I took some goo gone and removed it and then cleaned the bottles so they were ready for my paint.
I grabbed a can of my Valspar Gloss White and gave the bottles a few coats of white loveliness.
Then I dug through my scrapbooking stash and added some rub-on vinyl I had leftover from a scrapbook page. I thought my bottles needed a little bit more, so I added some of these jewels stick-on things to the mouths of the bottles. If you decide to do this, you might want to glue them on -- mine kept sliding off after a while, so I decided to take the hot glue gun to them.
So are you ready to see?
Cute? And here's the close up of those jewels:
For a zero cost project I think it'll do. :) And I'd love to show you where I put them.......but you'll just have to wait. I have a whole room transformation that I can't wait to show you! (but the paint's still drying, so I'll have to share another day).
