Halloween Upcycle Frappuccino Bottle

 I don’t know where I’ve been when it comes to making projects using these cool bottles but I finally did it!  It was super fun!

My sons were happy to drink much frappuccino so I could have these bottles.

I bought these Starbucks frappuccino’s at my local grocery store and my sons helped empty them…into their tummies.  I washed the bottles, peeled off the labels and used Goo Gone to take off the rest of the stickiness.

Using Vinyl for the skeleton.

 Using the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge to create the skeleton, I cut him out of white vinyl.  Then I used transfer tape to move his bony little body to the bottle.  Need help with vinyl?  Check out my Cricut Vinylology DVD.

1 3/4″ punch is the key to covering these lids easily.

To make the lid blend in better with the overall project, I punched a little piece of paper out using this 1-3/4″ punch. Then I glued it to the lid.  It fit like a glove.  Sweet.

Glue Dots hold this ribbon really well!

I added a piece of ribbon around the top of the bottle using craft Glue Dots.  They did a great job!

Before milk.
All treat, no trick!

 Using Joy’s Life Halloween Puns stamps, I created this little tag.  I used a standard hole punch and then threaded some raffia through it.  I love raffia!

Spooky milk!

This is a fun way to serve a themed drink at parties!

Time for a GIVEAWAY!
