    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?

    •  You're 4 months old (plus a few days) and while you look like a chubby monkey, turns out you're only in the 11th percentile for weight at 13.3 lbs. Your brother was 13.5 lbs at this age, so you are only a teeny bit smaller but you're a full inch taller at 25.5 inches (71st percentile!) Since you sleep through the night the doc said not to be concerned. You took your vaccinations better than your brother too, but remind me never to do both of your shots at the same time again. You couldn't pay me enough or give me enough wine to do that a second time. You're chattering, belly laughing, rolling, tracking my every movement, sleeping 11-12 straight hours at night, grabbing for toys, sucking any of your fingers (or fist) you can get in your mouth, watching me eat, and napping like shit. Month 3 to month 4 has been a little rocky, but you are honestly the easiest and sweetest baby ever so it's really not all that bad. It's like you make my Grinch heart grow three sizes every hour of every day.
       Christmas is a week away! If you're scrambling to think of a last minute gift idea, I shared these DIY teacher gifts on @itsmomtastic that I gave Charlie's teachers last year. I made an updated version that I'll share later today as well. Find this one here: http://www.momtastic.com/diy/476215-diy-teacher-holiday-gifts/ or search DIY teacher holiday gifts on their site (link in their profile). These also make a great gift for girlfriends, your holiday hostess, a boss, or in my case your husband's theatrical manager! Basically everyone loves them. Head over to see what's inside and how to make, plus a DIY for that salt dough ornament too.
