Hello everybody! We are moving along nicely with our exciting secret project plans, and we are here today to show you all how to make a DIY milk bottle! 🙂
I love vintage things, so this craft was right up my alley. These were also relatively simple to make as well as cost efficient, so I am happy to share it with all of you!
Okay, let’s get started!
For this craft you will need:
Aluminum foil tube, or other sturdy tube (these are super handy!)
Exacto knife (parent’s supervision required)
Hotel shampoo bottles
Printed labels (we just created labels with Microsoft Word)
Take your aluminum foil tube and cut 2 inch long sections. We wanted two milk bottles so we cut two.Discard the lids of the hotel shampoo bottles. Measure an inch and 1/4 from the top opening of the bottles, and draw a line around the bottle. Using an exacto knife, cut on the line to remove the tops. Next, hot glue the tops of the hotel shampoo bottles to the top rim of the aluminum foil tubes.
As you can see, I had an assortment of silver buttons lying around. I chose two that I thought would be perfect bottle tops, and hot glued them to the tops of my milk bottles.
Our button bottle cap had a hole in the top, so I put a piece of tape on top to keep the paint from dripping out while it dried.
Once the paint is completely dry on the inside of your bottle, paint the outside of the aluminum foil tube white. I know that it is already white, but a crisp coat of paint is nice to cover any flaws in the tube. Now the bottles are ready for labels! I used a pink script font in Word to make a label. Then I cut it out, and wrapped it around the bottle, securing it with a glue stick. I wrapped packing tape around the milk bottles to laminate the labels.
And you’re done!
Not very cat friendly though, I suppose. Oh dear. Licorice, what have you done?! 🙂
