M&M Christmas Balls

Hello & Happy Sunday!

Hope your all having a great weekend! Yesterday we celebrated my son's 25th birthday with a requested supper that consisted of crab legs & steamed shrimp! It sure was yummy! We ended the day about midnight with chocolate cake w/ peanut butter icing & ice cream! LOL It was a good day indeed!

Today, i'm sharing with you these M&M Christmas balls that I have been picking at the last few days. Finally completed and now maybe I can move on to something else! :)
I got the bottles at Walmart and they usually only sell these durning the holidays. They are round Coke bottles. I emptied them, washed the bottles and let dry. Spray painted the lids with Krylon Metallic Spray Paint. Added a thin strip of M&M designer paper around the widest width of the bottle and hot glued it on. Then I added the sentiment which was ran thru the Cuttlebug with my Circle Nestibilities. Popped it up and attached it on the bottle with dimensionals and added a beautiful Jolee's Holly sticker. Hot glued a bow on the lid and called them done!
I have collected these bottles for the last few years and had no clue what I was gonna do with them. This year the idea finally came to me! LOL
I love them!

Off to the craft show they go this week! :)

Happy Holidays!

Well, that's all for now!
Thank you for stopping by & have a great day!
