Party Prep ~ DIY: Waterproof Water Bottle Labels

I really shouldn't even be writing a DIY post about making these because they are SO EASY.

A while ago J.D. and I were in Target and had a convo that went like this:

Me: Look babe! Paul Frank Duct Tape! We need this for Trey's party!

J.D.: What are you going to do with that?

Me: I don't know..... Um.... SOMETHING

J.D.: No Lis, put it back...

Me: *Huff puff*

And ever since I thought to myself "oh I am GOING to find a way to use that darn tape"!

Fast forward a few weeks I was trying to figure out how to do water bottle labels for Trey's birthday, I knew I would want to laminate them because ice + paper labels on water bottles = ick! And I knew that the water needed to be ice cold for a party in August!!


Couldn't I just use the duct tape ON the bottles? Um yep.

So I went and got the tape (without J.D. thankyouverymuch) and went on the search for smooth water bottles. (OCD much?) You know bottles that weren't all bumpy where the label was going to be.

(And in case you were in walmart in the middle of the night last week and saw some rough looking crazy lady FEELING up water bottles... well. You should have said hi.) 

So I found these smaller Aquafina ones on sale this week at Target. I think that they will be perfect for   kids and adults alike.

I just removed the labels that come on the water and replaced with the duct tape! Easy peasy!!!

(Target has a good selection of different designs back by the home improvement area, and Michaels had a ton when I was there recently too!! )
