Repurposed Frappuccino Bottles

I dearly love Starbucks bottled Frappuccinos!
I found a way to justify my consumption!
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.
It's neat to collect sand from different beaches and see the vast differences in each one. Some are dark, some are light, some are fine, some are course....if you have never been to the website that shows the magnification of sand.....by all means, please visit it here. It is amazing and so beautiful! We are walking on these lovely treasures!
So, find some Frappuccino on sale.....have a Frappuccino Party {or drink them all yourself, like me}......and have some fun with the neat empty bottles!

    I use mine for refilling with sweet tea instead of buying soda but I need new lids. Anyone know of another way to seal these or other lids that'll fit??

  • Victoria Reinkoester

    I believe if you google it there is a place to purchase new lids. Fillmore Containers? I maybe wrong, but what is it going to hurt?

    Can use for spice bottles. I saw in Pinterest. with a label of stick for name of herb or spices. Don't need to buy regular spice bottle cost too much money. buy bulk spices. Cheapest price.
