    Today’s DIY is fun, super easy, and totally FREE.  Yep, I said free.  I paid ZERO dollars for my materials.  What’s better than an awesome DIY that’s free?

    So let’s start with your materials.

    {what you need}
    scissors
    double sided tape or washi tape
    bottles
    paint chips

    do you see why this DIY is basically free?  I already had scissors and tape, I stocked up on paint chips for my DIY projects during my last walmart visit, and I saved the bottles from drinks we had in our house.

    You could use vintage bottles if you have them, or you can just collect bottles like I did.  I used the Trader Joe’s root beer bottles.  And you can leave the adhesive on them because it helps hold the paint chip in place.

    {how you do it}
    Seriously, I think my 21 month old kid could do this.  I would let him try, but he throws things and the bottles are glass – not great parenting.  But trust me, this is beyond E-A-S-Y.
    {Step 1}  Take one end of the paint chip and secure it with double side tape onto the bottle.  
    {Step 2}  Wrap the paint chip around the bottle.

    {Step 3} Secure the second end of the paint chip with double side or washi tape.  You could cut to size or just let it overlap.  I overlapped mine.
    {Step 4}  Repeat steps 1-3 for as many bottles as you want to make.

    I think these are cute for a party or a shower as well as a wedding.  If you do them for a wedding and have lots of them you could do a few different things:
    ~use multiple colors of the paint chips from your palette
    ~ you could vary the size of the bottles (these long & skinny paint chips would fit around some wine bottles too)
    ~use different color bottles (think these clear ones mixed with vintage aqua bottles) 
    ~you could alternate the height placement of the paint chips on the bottles

    I’m loving the finished product.  There is nothing better than a DIY that looks great, costs almost nothing, and takes less than 5 minutes!  So, what do you think of my paint chip bottle vases?

    •  Sometimes when Calvin is really bugging the crap out of Charlie, I explain to him how I understand how it is sometimes hard to have a baby brother and how they can sometimes be annoying. Because I also had a baby brother who used to bug the crap out of me  But look how cute he was! And now he's not annoying at all, so Charlie has that to look forward to.  Happy birthday baby brother.  Last weekend Charlie introduced Calvin to one of his absolute favorite places, @californiasciencecenter. Already looking forward to this weekend's adventures! If you are looking for a place to take your kids this weekend in the area, I posted our favorite places today on the blog - link in profile! Where are your favorite family-friendly spots in LA? #theadventuresofcharlieandcalvin #oldsfaveplacesinLA
