Join Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water in the recycling movement today!
I am so excited to have partnered up with Arrowhead in this recycling movement. I wanted to share some creative ways to use plastic water bottles. I had made this pineapple candy holder to give away as a gift but with St. Patrick’s Day and Easter coming up, thought I’d make some cute water labels for the get-togethers I’ll be attending.
Here’s what you’ll need:
I cut 9”X1.5” strips of paper or ribbon to fit around the Arrowhead bottle label and used tape to secure it. I embellished the bottle with stickers and used circle craft punches for the medallion in the center. These are inexpensive and easy to make and will add a little extra fun and personality to your St. Patrick’s Day and Easter get-together.
Join me and show your support for Arrowhead’s recycling efforts! Before you leave I want to share this interesting infographic!
A big THANK YOU to Arrowhead for sponsoring today’s post!
Being a known craft hoarder among my circle of friends, I am often given a craft challenge. For example, my friend Amanda gave me a sandwich bag of coin wrappers and I made flowers out of them. Most recently, my friend Jenny gave me some baby food jars. With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner I decided to make a little chalkboard paint pot of gold with chocolate coins to give out as a gift or use as a favor. Here is a St. Patrick’s Day Craft: Pot of Gold.
- Recycled baby food jars
- Chalkboard Paint
- Paint brush
- Toothpicks or BBQ skewers
- Cotton balls
- Gold ribbon
- Green ribbon
- Any small craft punch related to St. Patrick’s Day or Springtime (I used a flower)
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Chocolate gold coins
- Colored paper scraps in rainbow colors
First, clean remove the label with warm soapy water and dry your jars.
To make the banner, punch out two of each color and use glue to attach it to your green ribbon. Tie the ends to your toothpicks to make a small banner.
Line the edge of the jar with gold ribbon by gluing it and glue on cotton balls to form a cloud on top of the lid. Hot glue the sticks to the lid of the jar maneuvering it until it is sturdy.
Paint the jar with chalkboard paint using a paint brush. I painted my jar with two coats, allowing one hour in between coats. Let the final coat of chalkboard paint dry for 24 hours, allowing it to cure before writing on it with chalk.
Write the recipient’s name on your jar, or “Happy St. Patrick’s day” and fill it with gold chocolate coins!
My husband LOVES St. Patrick’s Day (even though he’s not Irish). We thought we’d start an annual St. Patrick’s Day party at our house… starting NEXT year. Since we just moved in, we thought it’d best to just start with getting some ideas first.
There were so many inspiring St. Patrick’s Day ideas that I decided to do a photo gallery. It was impossible to narrow it down to a few pictures. I explored my usual websites like BHG and Martha Stewart and also some of my favorite blogs as well as Pintrest.
So, at the end of this photo gallery is a list of links for the sources, some with tutorials, and some with free printables, to all this amazing St. Patrick’s Day DIY Inspiration.
