Puff Paint Water Bottle

Today's project is not my own!
But, it is a fun one and I have to share it.

The other day, I came home and my daughter, Carrie, was out with friends. I sent her a text to see where she was...
"Walmart," she said.
"Why?" I asked.
"You'll see," she replied.

Well, she has inherited that thing where you get that feeling where you just have to do something creative.

She came home with plain water bottles and puff paint.
Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of the water bottles before the transformation. I didn't realize just how awesome they would turn out! Here's what she did...

She covered the entire bottle with puff paint!
She's obsessed with mustaches so she put one on the bottom of the bottle. It makes it appear as though you have a mustache when you turn the bottle up (well, a puff paint mustache, anyway).

One of her friends got bored after adding a couple of squiggles to her bottle so Carrie finished it for her...

This is a fun project for "kids" of any age!
