Patriotic craft: water bottle party favors

DIY patriotic party decorSummertime celebrations are right around the corner! That usually means partying with a few red, white and blue decorations, right?

Want a fun way to dress up the drinks you serve on Memorial Day or Fourth of July? Jus wrap them with a little decorative tape! I was inspired by Kim’s decorated water bottles and decided to decorate my water bottles for the upcoming holidays. The mini water bottles are the perfect size for the width of washi tape.

Patriotic washi tape party bottlesLet me show you how quick and easy these patriotic bottles were to make.


Supplied needed:

  • Washi tape (in red, white and blue colors)
  • Scissors
  • Mini water bottles

Remove the store label from each bottle.

That’s it! Now you have cute water bottles to go with your other patriotic decorations.

    Is that the target washi tape? I knew it should have gone in my cart today. Tried some around a smooth mason jar, but had a hard time getting it to line up. Any suggestions?

      Kara, I’m not sure what to tell you except to peel it off and keep trying. Sometimes if the container is even just slightly tapered, it might not line up. In those instants, I sometimes will run material vertically to create stripes instead. Good luck!
