So after what seems like YEARS, I finally finished my Soda Bottle DIY Project.
For a little background, I was inspired by the DIY Old Fashioned Soda Bar article on PW, but I knew that having ALL that soda would go to waste at our little wedding...so I decided that I would rather make custom labels for some old fashioned glass soda bottles and use them as our favors.
I found these 4-pack of Cream Soda with the light blue twist off caps at Marshalls/TJ Maxx for $2.99 each!
The next step was trying to make my own labels. Now, I am not artistically inclined AT ALL, so after scouring the internet, I found this awesome article about DIY Sodas to make Ice Cream Floats (which I am TOTALLY going to do for my little girls' next birthday, YUM!) on Eat.Drink.Chic. Luckily, she had some templates for making all the different labels for her sodas, which I thought were PERFECT!
The only think I needed now was to personalize the colors and write the info that I wanted on the labels. Again, I am NO GOOD at this stuff, but luckily one of my good friends is a photoshop whiz kid and had it done in a matter of moments!
My friend Cindy is SUPER talented! The Labels read "Symone & Chris...Ciencin Soda...Established April 10th, 2010"
Now, my original intention was to buy some waterproof label paper and print them on there, just slap them onto the bottles and then chill them, but that stuff is PRICEY! So I decided that we would just have the labels printed on regular paper and find some way to adhere them to the bottles. Chris printed them at work (FREE) and I bought this Elmer's Glue-All stick that seemed like it would work ($2.49 at Rite Aid)
And viola! It really only took me a total of 20 minutes to do 32 bottles, which isn't bad! I can't wait to see them all set up on our cake table! And for under $30 we have really, really unique favors for our guests!
