Am I the last person in the world to realize that Starbucks bottles look like old pint-sized milk bottles?
Well, they kinda-sorta do, right?
Okay, it might be a bit of a stretch, but if you have a good imagination, and some white paint, it could pass for a milk bottle right?
Actually, that doesn’t really have anything much to do with my post today, but just play along, okay?
My husband and daughter occasionally buy frappucino, so we had some of these Starbucks bottles sitting around, and if you know me, you know I stockpile glass bottles and jars, because there are hundreds of cute things to do with them.
There was one sitting by my sink waiting to be washed, and that’s when I saw the kinda-sorta resemblance to milk bottles, so I painted the interior of the bottle white. I used the same easy image transfer process that I used to make the Milk & Cream bottle (tutorial here), but this time I wanted to use a different image …
so it would look like a milk bottle… except not.
I know…it doesn’t make any sense to me either, but it’s cute, right?
I used the “Madam Blumer’s advertisement (original image here), but I converted it into a black and white image to use for this project. I printed the image at wallet size so it would fit on 3″ wide tape to do the transfer.
Won’t this make a cute vase to hold flowers this summer? I didn’t want to pick my irises that are blooming, since those never last long once cut, so I picked some flowering weeds instead for this photo instead.
Flowers are flowers and it’s cute, right?
I still have several more of the bottles, and oodles of glass jars, so I know I’ll be using this same process on more of them. My “thoughtful” teenage son offered to drink the frappucino for me, if I wanted to buy the drinks to get more empty bottles. Needless to say, I told him I’d pass on his thoughtful offer.
