Here's their creation.
I, as previously mentioned, happen to have a large supply of empty glass Torani bottles, so I knew I would be making something similar.
The July 4th holiday was around the corner when inspiration hit!
I had more of the 12" fence picket sections mentioned in a previous post, and 3 bottles for nicely on one section.
I built a box to surround the bottles, and borrowed a 1.5" drill bit from dad to drill holes in the top section.
I tried just using the 1" drill bit that I already had, and just wriggling the bit around. Yeah. Not the best idea. I wound up having to scrap that wood and start over.
The right tools make ALL the difference!
Next I picked out the stickers that had the font I wanted and applied them to the bottles.
Then I spray painted each bottle the appropriate color, and let dry.
I opted to spray paint the outside of the bottles, instead of painting the insides, so that I could put water in them and use as vases for the flowers from my gardens.
When the paint was dry, I peeled off the stickers, placed the bottles on the bottom board, and used small nailed to attach the top piece.
Project cost: $8 for red and blue spray paint.
Project time: could be done in 1 afternoon.
