st. patrick's day silly leprechaun bottles

we don't really celebrate st. patrick's day at my house. 

one year we went to the parade downtown and spent the better part of it looking for a parking space and caught the end of the parade. 

another year we went to a pub and i wasn't real crazy about the food.

and still another year we just looked at each other and said "happy st. patty's day" and that was that.

but this year, i plan on something a little festive, i mean besides wearing green so we won't get pinched even though i am the complete opposite of looking like i'm irish.

anyway, i made these for the kids:
yes they are silly.
wanna make some?
just drink a starbuck's frappucino,
 remove the labels,
 and clean the bottle.

head to michael's for the supplies, 
and follow the steps on the pics below:



i only peeled part of the back of one of the mustache stickers so the ends stick out. 
and the other little "heart" that you get when you cut your shamrock sticker gets pitched.
you can glue the hats on the lid if you like, 
or just leave them off.
ok so that's about it!

have fun with them :)
