Snowmen Made from Creamer Bottles

0 0EmailPrintFollow

I am wondering if you can still use Coffeemate creamer bottles to make snowmen since they are now clear under the label? I don't want to have a bunch of kids painting them. Any ideas?

Here is a great site to use for the snowman creamer bottle. I just adore it.

How about coating the inside of the bottle with tempera art paint? Pour from one to the other until all bottles are coated and then back into the paint container. Leave bottles open until they are completely dry.

Why don't you just line some up and paint them. Only takes one can of paint and many Coffee Mate containers. They'd be dry overnight.
Good luck.

You could stuff the bottles with the "cotton" stuffing from pill bottles, scraps of polyester pillow stuffing, white rags (old t-shirts, etc.), or even foam packing peanuts. If the bottles are translucent (frosty looking) and not actually transparent, the packing peanuts shouldn't even show. You could also just put in a rolled piece of copy paper, tissue paper, or sheet batting, such as the kind used at Christmas time to set figures and miniature villages in the "snow".

I don't use Coffeemate, but if the only thing keeping you from using the container is that it's clear, then fill the container with cotton balls or pillow stuffing. They will be white then.

I love snowmen and I use liquid creamer in my coffee-what a great idea! (01/21/2006)

As a Girl Scout leader I am always looking for new ways to stay green. I have 100s of these bottles because I knew someday there would be a craft for them. (07/26/2009)
