DIY "Vintage" Milk Bottles


Starbucks iced coffee bottles are the perfect size to make "vintage" milk bottles. Readers, this project was a BREEZE, and I used them to serve milk at my cookies and craft party.
 Here's what you'll need to recreate them..
I got the white opaque marker at Michael's. I used the gold one on the Anthro imitation gift wrap. They are replacing paint pens in my craft life. Love them. The mini cupcake liners are from Martha Stewart's line.

I'd be lying if I told y'all that I worked really hard to make tuffles...Those little white poofs of goodness are coconut Ferrer Roche candies taken out of the wrapper.
Love me some paper crafts. (So sorry trees...)
