Repurposed Frappuccino Bottles

I dearly love Starbucks bottled Frappuccinos!

I found a way to justify my consumption!

#Love2Repurpose !

These glass bottles have clear labels that come off super easy, and then if you wash them in the dishwasher any residue that is left will come off during the wash. They look very much like vintage milk bottles....love this look.

We use them as drinking bottles...they look great with paper straws in them, vases...have fun tying burlap or twine around the neck to dress them up a bit...... we also use them for our collection of sand from the different beaches that we have visited.

You can leave the lids as they are...or spray paint them any color you wish. For my son's sand collection we spray the lids silver...for the collection above we just left the lids as they are because we store them on a high shelf. We then tie a tag with the beach's name on it around the neck.

Time: 30 Minutes Difficulty: Easy

    Those tags, are key tags. Available at Staples. Martha Stewart also carries some tags, and Chalkboard labels will look good too. Also,available at Staples.

    Why not fill up the bottles with Epsom salts and lavender, too ? (Only don't pour these in to whirlpool or jet tub ... the lavender can clog the jets and lines..)

    I have some jars that I want to stencil and etch the names of herbs. I grow my own herbs and these would be perfect to store those dried herbs. Pain the tops with chalk paint and store on a shelf in an old fashioned wooden cola box (the kind with

    DeEtte Bruce I used a labeler with clear tape to label the little tags on each bottle. =)

    We don't drink Frapuccinos but we do drink Yoohoo and those bottles are great, too. I also like painting the lids with chalk paint.

    So, I am not the only one fascinated with the difference of sand and rocks. When we left from Cape Cod (vacation) they searched my bags because I had them full of zip lock bags of sand and I had some large rocks. They thought it too heavy to be clothes.
