I love serving drinks in my milk bottles (aka old Starbucks frappacinno bottles) at parties. I like to wrap twine and string around the necks and put custom stickers on them. I think great parties are made in all the details.
When I got the first Christmas Pottery Barn Kids catalogue of the season, I noticed red scarves on milk bottles as one of the props in the photograph. I’ve been wanting to make my own version. And how simple and cute did these turn out.
All you need to do is cut a 1″ width strip of felt down the long side of a felt square (they are 12″ long). Cut fringe on either end of the scarf and the cut a 1 inch slit in the middle of the scarf about 2 1/2″ inches in. Wrap the scarf around the bottle neck and put the other end of the scarf through the slit, pull snug. Attach the buttons using glue dots (they wash of easily). And you of course need cute paper straws. I got these adorable Birch Bark Straws at Paper Source.
I’m itching to have a party of some sort. I’m considering a good old cookie exchange. I really need an excuse to serve eggnog in these fun cozyfied bottles.
And don’t forget to enter to win the Winter Wreath.
