Inexpensive DIY Centerpieces

My daughter, Emily, found this idea from a blog named 'The Colorful Living Project'. A big thanks to them for such a GREAT idea!!!
The first step is the funnest!!! Drink six sodas all by yourself in 10 minutes! J/K! :-D
Take outside to spray.
You will thank me later on the "secret weapon", because I wasted a lot of time experimenting with all the wrong and time-consuming stuff first.

Idea #1: SPRING/SUMMER
Idea #2: FALL
We're making these for an upcoming church leadership meeting. Thus, the tags...
But you could also do something like this below:
I got the tags at Staples.


Happy Fall! : )

Those are so adorable...and you could actually sell your secret weapon ideas!!!
If I drank 6 sodas in ONE day, well, I would be bouncing off the wall. No thanks. :)

I have one that I painted this summer, but never thought to do a whole pack of them. So cute!! Did you paint them on the outside? I did the whole "pour the paint inside and wiggle the bottle" thing. Not fun. Yours look great!
Thanks for the idea.
Blessings,
Marcia

I would love to have some time to just sit and craft. This idea is so cute and darn right charming. It would bring anyone facing the blues out of their funk!
I'm so tired and feeling a bit blue today. Can't find my happy hat but I knew I could count on this happy little blog to uplift me.
Just missing my little Misha and my parents for some reason.
~my love to you~

This is such a good idea...Are the real soda bottles hard to find? I can't remember seeing glass bottles for a while. Great idea to paint the little carrier too. Hope all is well with you. I am dreadfully behind visiting blogs. Thanks for your patience!
