I made 13- 4th of July Washi tape decorations a while back, but this giant recycled Voss water bottle didn't get wrapped with washi tape and topped with a bouquets of sparkly pipe cleaners to make a 4th of July firework decoration... until now.
This project was so fun and simple you could whip up a bunch in minutes for virtually no money. I was inspired by this page in Washi Tape: 101+ Ideas for Paper Crafts, Book Arts, Fashion, Decorating, Entertaining, and Party Fun! where Courtney Cerruti uses a wine bottle decorated with Washi tape.
I simply made stripes with red, white and blue washi tape covering the whole bottle and cap.
Then I wrapped a bunch of sparkly pipe cleaners at one end with another pipe cleaner to secure them together.
I attached them to lid with a bit of hot glue.
To make the flag, I used Duck Brand Glitter Tape.
I folded a strip of it half around one end of a pipe cleaner and cut out a triangle.
NOTE: Can I say how great it is to cut sticky stuff with the new Fiskars Duck Edition scissors? I have been making a lot of stuff with Duck Tape since it's now available in such amazing prints, and now that I am a Washi tape junkie having some good non-stick scissors will be even more useful.
The last detail was to write "Bang!" on the Blue Glitter Duck Tape flag.
