Six Fashionable Bottles of Beer on the Wall – DIY Bottle Covers

Tis the season to start thinking about holiday shopping and crafting.  Well if you are looking for something fun and semi-homemade for the man or woman in your life that is sure to bring years hours of fun and excitement, look no further.

I came across this idea when looking for original and fun ideas for Justin’s first Father’s Day this past year.  The appropriately named site, The Idea Room, provided a tutorial along with the free printable shown below to dress-up soda bottles:

All I had to do was pick up a six-pack of one of Justin’s favorite drinks – Bell’s Oberon – and print out the design from The Idea Room.  I printed out the document a few times so I had several blank shirts to design.  Then, after coloring in a couple of the shirt and tie combos, I drew the logos from Justin’s favorite sports teams on the remaining shirts.  After that, all I had to do was add a little tape to the shirt and the attachment strip, slide it over the neck of the bottle, and it was good to go.

This was the perfect project for me when juggling a seven-week-old at the time.  I need to remember this for Boss’s Day and other fun Hallmark holidays throughout the year.  After all, it would not take much to change “Happy Father’s Day” to “Happy (Any) Day.”  I am currently entertaining the idea of cutting the shirts out of Christmas scrapbook paper so they appear like ugly Christmas sweaters for fun host gifts as well.  Tis the season, indeed.

    Love the ugly sweater idea! So cute! Not to mention how impressive it is that you were so crafty with a seven-week-old to care for!

    Thanks, Kelli! As for throwing this together with a seven-week-old, I’m sure it only happened because (a) the hard work was already done thanks to the printable and (b) I was running on adreneline. 🙂
