I’ve really enjoyed crafting with recycled items lately. When I went shopping for Halloween candy alternatives last month I purchased a package of Starbucks iced coffee and made sure to hang on to the empty bottles. I was also fortunate to have a grab bag of Pick Your Plum goodies laying around waiting to be used. Starbucks bottles + Pick Your Plum goodies = Starbucks Bottle Place Card Holders.
If you know me you know that I love simple crafts. I used four Starbucks bottles, De-Solv-it [to get rid of the goo], twine, lace tape, taggies and glue. Simple.
The first thing I did was clean the bottle of the leftover residue from the sticker. Then I added the lace tape which is self adhesive so I just peeled off the backing and put that on the rim of the bottle. [I was trying to hid the ridges.] I then put glue on the neck of the bottle and twirled twine over it. Make sure you pull the twin tight to keep it purdy.
I added another piece of lace tape and name tags and bam! Place card holders from upcycled bottles. [I have a thing for re-using bottles.]
We are having 15 adults and 7 kids at our house for Thanksgiving this year. Momma better get to drinking some Starbucks if I want everyone to have a place card. [And I do.. I really do.]
I dont know if I am more excited about the place card holders or turkey. Im leaning towards the place card holders but turkey is a close second.
