Insourcing.... new gift ideas...Glamorous water bottles...

I'm always brainstorming for a cute DIY know me.
Here's my latest effort.
One $2.50 drink bottle from KMart...

Here is the water bottle in the online catalogue.
Rubbery skin thing removed....not aesthetically pleasing at all...

...upcycled with these fabulous custom decals from MellaandMoi on Etsy.


I came up with the wording, gave Mel the size of the bottle, chose a font and a colour, and look what cleverness resulted...

How much do I love the one I kept for me...

Filled with water fizzed by our Soda Stream, it's now a special pleasure to ensure our water intake is up to scratch.

The decals work out at around $5.
So that's $7.50 for a super duper cute gift.
You could pair this with a Soda Stream to fizz water for a special gift for someone for a great price.

Or fill it with chocolates for a Champagne kinda look and a reuseable container.

Don't say I don't give you all the best tips.
