Repurposed Bottle ~ Santa’s Sleigh Thinlets

I had a little bottle filled with sweeties given to me at a craft retreat – the sweeties were soon gone but I could not bring myself to throw away the bottle, so I tucked it away in a corner………… knowing that one day I would find a use for it.

This project was inspired by a UK SU demonstrator known as Pootles – as soon as I saw what she did with an empty candle jar I knew my little bottle had a new purpose in life!

I used Vellum Card to cut out 2 each of the reindeer and trees from the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlets dies and used glue dots to attach them to the outside of the bottle.  Each reindeer sports a bow made from the Real Red 1/8 solid ribbon from the 2017 Holiday catalog and the trees a rhinestone on each branch.

The light set has a little switch/battery holder that would not fit in the bottle and needed to be convenient to switch the lights off and on.  I created a small tag using the Everyday Label Punch with a banner hand cut from Old Olive card and Silver Glimmer Paper to cut with the Starburst Punch.  This gave me enough space to tuck the switch behind it with a couple of glue dots to hold it in place.

I got the lights thru Amazon, click here and it will take you right there!
