With that said one of the many new fall trends making an appearance is a combination of black and blue in your outfits. This once naughty no no is now an appropriate and all ready celeb adopted trend.  It was seen all over the runways and is now making it’s way to the street.

DIY Ombre Bling Water Bottle

Tags

, , ,

So today I went to buy a new water bottle. I wanted one of those sporty ones that only took one hand to open and close and kept the mouth piece clean. I found one, but it was extremely boring and only came in one color…black. *SNORE*

Yeah pretty boring right! I decided to spice it up a little and add some colorful bling. Just to the bottom though because I didn’t want to feel it under my hands while drinking it. I know I’m weird. Anyways! Here is what you need and the steps.

Supplies:

  • E-6000 glue, NOT SUPER GLUE
  • an applicator like a Popsicle stick or straw
  • a paper plate
  • colorful bling

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Make sure your bottle has been hand cleaned the the top removed.

Step 2: Sort out 2 or 3 colors you want to use. Get the kids to help with this part, it can be a pain!

 

 

 

Step 3: put some E-6000 on the plate and dip straw into the glue.

 

 

 

Step 4: place glue on the back of the first color of bling you want to start with. Then press bling onto the very bottom of the water bottle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5: create a row of bling in one one color and size all around the bottom of the bottle. This way this will be your darkest and most uniform color.

 

 

 

 

 

Step 6: when you get to the second or third row start to incorporate the other color in a few pieces at a time.

Step 7: Then when you are ready to transition more into the other color start to add less of the first and more of the second.

 

 

 

 

Step 8: Repeat by having a row of solid colors and then transitioning into the next color. Try to use different size pieces as your move on so that the pattern looks more random and not so stripey.

Step 9: when you are almost done start to make peaks with smaller pieces on top.

Step 10: Just to give the completely look of the colors trailing off ad a few random tiny pieces of bling in the last color like this—->

 

 

 

 

When your all done it will look something like this!

Note: Let it sit for 24hrs undisturbed to let the glue set.

Tada! Now be the envy of your jogging/work out buddies with this fun blingy ombre water bottle!!!

Enjoy 😀
