Are you looking for a fun, easy project…nice party favor for your guests? The Recycled Candy Bottle is just the right item for you. It’s like the perfect union – joining together the environmentally conscience & creative crafter.
I don’t drink sodas often; however, when I need a strong jolt, my pick-me-upper soda is the “Red Rock Ginger Ale”. It’s so strong…it usually takes me a day or two to gulp down the entire soda. OMG, this ale is good for any ailments – upset tummy, headache, cramps and the list goes on…
Before you trash the bottle, think R-E-C-Y-C-L-E, please. Yes, the bottle has endless uses. Today, we’ll be using the bottle to make a fun Jelly Bean Candy Bottle.
– Overnight soak the bottle in warm, soapy water.
– Next day, peel off all labels. Try to peel the entire label off in one pull.
– With warm, soapy water – remove the glue residue from the bottle.
– Apply chalkboard label to desired placement on the bottle.
– Outline the chalkboard label with rhinestone stickers.
– Add ribbon to the neck of your bottle. Any type of design to your liking… In this tutorial, we used the “scrungy” design, which requires the use of a hot glue gun. Apply a small dot of hot glue, directly to the bottle. Place open end of the ribbon on the glue. Place your finger on the 1/2 inch mark of the ribbon. Apply another small dot of hot glue. Place the ribbon on the bottle at the 1/2 inch mark. Repeat hot glue – ribbon application, until the ribbon covers the neck of the bottle. Cut off access ribbon.
– Add pre-cut flower to the ribbon.
– Add a rhinestone sticker to the center of the flower.
– If the bottle inside of the bottle is completed dry, add your favorite candies – jelly beans, skittles, reese’s pieces, nerds, lemon-heads, etc.
– Twist the plastic bottle cap on, tightly
– Write a message on the chalkboard label.
Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock – There you have it, Your Recycled Jelly Bean Bottle. Recycle conscious. Candy enthusiast. Crafter extraordinaire.
