DIY I Spy Bottle

You know you have seen them around Pinterest, within other blogs, or even in the stores. I Spy Bottles. Super cool idea, right? Well, it is even super easy to make!



Thanks to the nifty tutorial from Meet the Dubiens, I got this project done for both boys earlier this afternoon. It is so cute!! I made theirs Christmas themed with snowflakes, Santa, an elf, etc.

Here's how I made mine:

 2 clean plastic containers - 
Mine are from Target (of course) that held Christmas candy corn. 
I wish I took an after picture. Basically, I used nail polish remover and hot water/soap to remove the sticker residue. Ick!

An assortment of trinkets - 
All from Hobby Lobby. These are those little scrapbook/button embellishments. The ones with the button hole on the back I just clipped off. Also, to reduce (hopefully) chaos, Andrew has a blue light and a snowman with a blue scarf. Alex has green. We will see... :)


You will also need some plain white rice to hide those little stinkers, like Mr. Elf here. Isn't he cute?

Finally, we don't need any extra messes to clean up, so grab a glue gun or some crazy glue for extra protection from the toddlers. 

And there you have it! A Christmas I Spy Bottle!
