A little Sunshine In Your Day…Sharpies make everything fun!

I love to use found items to create pretty things to look at. I am also as stubborn as all get out and I refuse to look up tricks and tips to make creating easier. This little bottle didn’t strain my brain and six months after I made it, is still sitting pretty on my shelf.

Isn’t this cute?!

This is all you have to do…

  1. Get an empty and clean bottle – I used a Jones Soda Bottle

  2. Take off the label – I used Goo Be Gone to get rid of the extra gluey bits. Be sure to clean the outside of the bottle. You can wipe off your bottle with some rubbing alcohol. Dry it really well.

  1. Pick out a couple of your favourite sharpie colours and doodle on the bottle. Sharpies are permanent; your cute little doodles won’t wipe off.


  1. Fill the bottle with water and add in a couple of drops of food colouring or, if you are an artsy-wanna-be like me, some acrylic ink (I used bright, sunshine yellow!)


  1. Display your creation so the light shines in. It will look beautiful!

(After a while, you will notice some of the water has evaporated…just add in a little bit more and it is as good as new!)

I love looking at my little piece of sunshine.
