decorate mini milk bottles These customised mini milk bottles make a big impact on your party table and little party-goers love them.

You will need:

  1. Dip the rim of the milk bottles into the melted chocolate, then dip into the sprinkles. Ensure the chocolate is well covered with sprinkles. Leave them to dry.
  2. Trace a cup to make a large circle of card. Use double-sided sticky tape to attach the card to the bottle. Tie pretty twine around the bottle.
  3. Add a straw and they are ready for party time. Add plain or flavoured milk or juice of your choice.
  4. These bottles can be used again and again. You’ll find the double-sided sticky tape just peels off and you can wash the bottles as usual.

decorated mini milk bottles: winterYou can customise these mini milk bottles in so many ways. Here I used a white paper doilie, blue twine and white sprinkles to complement a Winter theme.

decorated mini milk bottles: namedHere I used a flower-shape holepunch to create an extra layer of colour on the label. I labelled each bottle with a child’s name so there was no confusion about whose was whose (and no germ swapping!). I also used an extra long piece of twine to wrap around the bottle a couple of times for a fun touch.

decorated mini milk bottles: animal & marshmallowThis bottle is a sweet addition to an Easter table setting or for an animal-themed birthday party. Slide a marshmallow onto a straw for extra drool points.

If your party guests will be younger than three I’d suggest using mini milk bottles with lids. In this case, you’ll need to forgo the chocolate on the bottles or the lids won’t fit on. You can still decorate your heart out with fun labels.
