    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?

    •  Washing some of my favorites (that survived Charlie's projectile spitting up for his first 6 months) to pass down to #babyfredrickpartdeux. Anyone know any tricks to get rid of those nasty aged spit up stains? I've washed and tried everything I know and a lot just didn't survive
