These little DIY glass milk bottles were so fun to make and made use of otherwise discarded glass bottles. They are perfect for your zinnia bouquet or for a special drink. What fun party favors they would be too!
I have mentioned many times before, but I am a firm believer in kismet, which is simply defined as destiny or fate.
It was kismet that led my eyes to spy a case of Starbucks Frappuccino this past Friday whilst at Costco. I know my son truly loves iced coffee, but this truly falls into ‘frivolous’ spending to which I don’t typically succumb. But kismet prompted me to justify the purchase because a) it was on sale and b) I thought it’d be a fun ‘back to school’ treat. Then, as my son enjoyed these little beverage treats, it was that craft kismet that kept nagging me to do something with the cute little empty bottles.
At first I brushed away this little nag…I mean, my crafting to-do list is a mile long and I don’t really need to be collecting empty glass bottles. Afterall, I just emptied my drawers of too many glass bottles when I did my big declutter last year and so have been hesitant to start adding clutter back.
So into the recycling bin the first couple of glass bottles went.
But then…kismet got me thinking.
Those little glass milk bottles are fun for flowers and for beverages. And I could bump the ‘fun’ up a notch by personalizing the bottles by using my Cricut and stenciling a ‘label’.
So on a rainy Monday, while I had laundry to fold and paint to paint, I instead did what kismet prompted me to do…I dug through the recycling bin to find the discarded bottles and then fiddled, crafted and ‘created’ these little glass milk bottles.

So, now that I know what I’m going to do with the 16 bottles that are in the case, I’m going to enjoy using different fonts and maybe different graphics!
This DIY glass milk bottles are such a fun idea for a party…or just as a special ‘cup’.
And of course, you can’t beat a bunch of zinnias in a glass milk bottle.
