Remember how I said that on Wednesday Allison and I would be having an arts and crafts afternoon and would be making these? WELL WE DID!
I used Jameson and Bushmills whiskeys because they're Irish, and stickers because I got excited when I saw them.
Allison got a bit frustrated, so I suggested she try the Bushmills bottles to see if they were easier. They were. Perhaps it was the fact that they are square with flat sides and the Jameson bottles are round, but the labels on the Bushmills bottles just came right off and the adhesive came off with some goo be gone.
After all the bottles were cleaned, we washed them with soap and drank some tea. :)
You can see here just how those turned out and the differences between them all.
As you can see it was a bit of a mess, and we ended up going over the bottles with some goo be gone to get up the excess modge podge.
I think they're pretty cute. A little pointless, true, but I had a lot of fun making them with Allison. I'm thinking of putting them in a little basket as a decoration when I have some people over on Saturday for a St. Patrick's Day dinner.
If you think these are tacky or in bad taste I promise my mom will agree with you.
