A simple, cute and easy home decor using only an empty bottle, a pair of scissors and tape!
I had a few Starbucks bottles lying around in the kitchen so I thought I'd do something with it(No, I didn't drink all of that...in case you were wondering). After having used the empty bottles for other home decors, I decided to come up with another idea just using the materials the bottle had. enjoy. thanks :D

  • How to make a storage bottle. Home Decor/For Fun: Bottles With Bow Ties <3 - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, you want to have bottles that are clean and have labels (the Sticker/paper that is decorated around the bottle with nutrition facts/titles, etc). These ones are from Starbucks.

    We want to start by peeling off the labels. Don't throw them away! We'll be making the bow ties out of them.

    Using the back label, cut a strip about 1~2cm. If you're label is big, cut a wider strip.

    Now, using the strip you just cut, wrap it around the accordion folded label. If the strip you cut out doesn't have a sticker-like bottom, then use a bit of tape to tape it up.

    Bow tie!

    Instead of using the labels of your bottle to make the bow, you can always use other materials such as duct tape,fabric, etc.

    If you have double-sided tape, then use that. But if you don't, then get some clear tape and fold it up so that all sides are sticky.
