    {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?

       #tbt to a year ago today -- our first family neighborhood walk selfie as a family of 4 with a teeeeny Calvin in my favorite @sollybabywrap. Can't believe we'll be doing this again, but Calvin will be in that tricycle and Charlie will be on his scooter or a bike, with another (yet to be named) baby boy in my wrap! Speaking of names, naming a 3rd boy is super hard! We have a couple of ideas, but I'd love to hear your favorite baby boy names. Everyone is asking if it will be another "C" name b/c of Charlie & Calvin, and I don't think so, but bonus points for great "C" names just in case! #timeflies #wheresthepausebutton
       Taking care of your skin can be especially tricky during pregnancy when hormones give it an identity crisis and you can no longer use your favorite products due to the ingredients being unsafe for pregnancy or nursing. I've partnered with @juicebeauty to give 3 (!) lucky followers a set of what I've been using this pregnancy and have really been loving the results: the Green Apple Pregnancy Peel, the new Stem Cellular Overnight Night Cream, the Stem Cellular Moisturizer and the Green Apple Exfoliating Cleanser. Although only the peel is specifically made with pregnant women in mind, all are pregnancy safe. But as with anything, check the ingredients with your OB to be sure it's right for you. So here's what you need to do to win a set for yourself: 1. Follow BOTH @ohlovelyday and @juicebeauty 2. Leave a comment that you follow both on THIS photo in @ohlovelyday's feed. 3. For a bonus entry, either repost this photo with the hashtag #OLDxJuiceBeauty (must be public) or tag 3 friends below (must be real friends, not celebrities or bloggers or shops you don't know personally (I hate when people I don't know personally tag me in giveaways!) Giveaway starts now and ends on 9/7/15. Winners will be tagged in the comments of this post and must DM or email me to claim their prize. Good luck! This giveaway is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram.
