{Joy} Bottles

I am back from Thanksgiving vacation!
And even though I enjoy getting away and seeing my family.
It feels so good to be home!

Now I have seen these bottles floating around pinterest for a while.
The links I have found were all for Fall.  
(not saying there isn't winter ones out there)
So I did my own twist on these bottles.
I really like the snowflake hanging out there.
I got the green things from Hobby Lobby when they were on sale.
I think in like October.
The are pretty simple to make.
All you will need is a few empty bottles.
You could probably even do it with vases found at a thrift shop.
Spray Paint
And whatever your hear desires to go into it.
I attached the joy with vinyl cut out with my handy Silhouette machine {heart}.
If I hadn't of procrastinated on the project it could have been done in a day.
(That is with drying time)
But for some reason I dragged my feet.
And it took me like a week to finish it.
A tree skirt got in the way.
I will show ya that this week!

And as always find me linking to these fantastic parties!

You are so clever to come up with a Christmas version of that initial idea! The white works so well with the red and green.

My weekly Pinterest party is on right now so if you have 5 minutes I would be honoured if you could pop by and link up this post!

Take care and best wishes,
Natasha.

I have those same bottles and was trying to figure out what to do with them. I intended on making them as gifts with M&M's in them but can't find the lids. (I just moved)So now I know - thank you!
