I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke

Ok, so I'm hopping off my education soapbox and getting back to crafts.  I was shopping in Walmart when I came across these great novelty shaped Coke bottles in honor of American Idol.
Fun, huh?  My crative wheels started turning.  Christmas decorations?  Vases?  Storage?  How about patio table decorations?  Yep!
Materials Needed:
Plastic Coke bottle or other container of your choice
Mod Podge
Colorful Napkins
Varnish (I used Minwax Waterbased Polycrylic)
Uncooked rice, sand, pebbles to weigh down plastic container


I found these fun, colorful napkins at Dollar Tree and cut them into strips.

Cover the bottle with Mod Podge, and also the strips of napkin as they are applied. I applied the word "Fiesta" on both sides of the container.

After the Mod Podge dries, apply the polycrylic.
Fill with something to weigh down the container, tie pretty ribbon or twine, etc, around the neck and enjoy!
