Whimsical Fun DIY Decorated Water Bottles

For awhile I've been thinking of throwing my daughter a party. I have to say the most fun part is thinking of a theme and decorating around it. There are websites that provide endless inspiration. However the biggest thrill is when you could put something together that is SUPER CHEAP! Yes that's right, I said cheap!!! So with that being my inspiration my latest craft I give you are these cute little diy decorated water bottles. All you need is a case of the small water bottles and a roll of large size kawaii deco tape. You can find kawaii deco tape on Etsy by doing a simple search under the supplies category.


1) Measure the circumference around your bottle.
2) Cut tape according to length.
3) Peel off backing and adhere to bottle(s).

It's that simple!

Customizable Diy Clock

Tick tock, tick tock....do you hear that? Thats the sound of time telling you that your boring walls need a little sprucing up! However you won't need much time to make this easy diy clock that can be customized to match your room in millions of ways thanks to the clever scrapbook industry. For as much paper there is on the market, you have that many choices on how you want your clock to look.

What you'll need;


  1. Decide on your clock's shape. Adhere paper to foam-core board using spray adhesive. Cut out the desired shape using a crafts knife.
  2. If desired, paint chipboard numbers in a coordinating color; let dry. Attach to the clock face with glue.
  3. Mark the location for the clockworks. Using a 5/16-inch-diameter dowel sharpened to a point (or a round pencil or awl), puncture a 5/16-inch hole. Carefully trim excess paper from the hole with a crafts knife.
  4. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to attach the clockworks
