Ok I am a big coffee drinker and I love my flavored half and half. We are always trying to find ways to use our recycled items here at the Shabby Tree. I have accumulated a lot of half and half containers and I came up with a fun way to use them throughout my home.
You can easily turn one of the Nestle Coffee Mate bottles into a faux milk bottle. I want to create the look of a crate of milk bottles.
The supplies I will be using are:
1. Six Nestle Coffee Mate bottles
2. Six small wooden boxes from the Dollar Tree
3. Hot glue
4. Americana gel stain (Walnut shade)
6. Heirloom white spray paint optional
7. Paint brush
You will want to remove all the labels from the Coffee Mate bottles.
The small wooden boxes from the Dollar Tree come with lids. I removed the lids and I will save them for another craft.
I painted all six wooden boxes with the gel stain.
You will use the hot glue to attach all six boxes together as shown in photo below.
I wrapped twine around the boxes and tied in the front.
You can leave the bottles clear or you can spray paint them. I love the Rust-Oleum Heirloom White spray paint.
This is so easy to create and will look so cute with fresh flowers. I hope you will have fun, get creative and give this a try.
