Halloween Potion Bottles

Other than increasing mental ability, overcoming fatigue, alleviating stomach aches, quenching thirst and being incredibly  pleasant to the palate, Coca-Cola has yet another benefit. It's called My Coke Rewards.


What does My Coke Rewards have to do with Halloween? Allow me to explain.


Underneath the bottle caps or inside the cardboard cartons of Coca-Cola products is a code that can be entered for points on My Coke Rewards. The points accumulated may be spent in a variety of ways and I chose to spend a few of mine on a subscription to Country Living Magazine.

The October issue of Country Living Magazine has some great ideas for Halloween decor.



This is the photograph that inspired me to make decorative bottles of my own...


I asked my son Chase to bring over some empty liquor bottles from his collection...



then I spray painted a few of them...



and printed Halloween graphics onto sticky labels that I picked up at OfficeMax.


Lastly, I adhered them to the bottles, creating these little works of art...

Those came out so cute!! Very clever idea!! That is neat about the Coke Rewards; hadn't heard about that, but then I gave out soda a few months ago, but I think it is great to do things like this to get earn rewards. Have you heard of My Points? You basically collect points that you can redeem for gift cards. Takes a bit of time to accumulate points, but not a lot of time every day; read a few emails, click on the site, earn 5 points here and there; sign up for free emails sites that give you more points, etc. Will use some of the points I accumultated this year to get gift cards to use for Christmas gifts in a few months. Mypoints.com I believe if interested to check it out.

enjoy the week ahead!

I am a Coke Rewards person to the end. I have gotten a lot of mag subscriptions from them and I have 5000 points to spend right now. I love your craft project. Just wonderful.

Catrina- Thank you and DO IT!

carolinaheartstrings- 5000 points?! Holy Cow! Either your family drinks a lot more Coke than we do, or I just spend points too fast on little things. Most likely, it's the latter. ;)

You do some of THEEE MOST creative stuff!. Those potion bottles are sooo cute!

I don't do Soda-pop anymore. It was eating my bones and causing me to feel anxious (because of lack of calcium). But, I still do caffiene...I know, not a whole lot better =P

hugZ,
