Repurposed Starbucks Frappuccino bottles into spice jars

Can you believe these are repurposed Starbucks Frappuccino bottles into spice jars? I absolutely love the look of these.
I found this tutorial and many more on this really cool website instructables. The part about the glass etching seems a little scary though, if I did it I might have to resort to stickers. according to instructables this is the list of supplies that you will need.
  • Eye protection. Better safe than sorry!
  • Rubber gloves. Repeat. Better safe than sorry!
  • Armour Etch Glass Etching cream (10 ounces costs approximately $20.00 in our area). Be sure to check your local newspaper or scan the internet for 40-50% off coupons on occasion to save money. Smaller quantities are available, I prefer the larger bottle as I etch quite a bit.
  • Contact / Vinyl / Duct paper
  • Tweezers, pins, or another method of picking up teeny little stickers
  • Stopwatch, timer, or another time-keeping device
  • Soft-bristled paintbrush
  • Razorblade or X-acto knife
  • Stencils
  • Soap and water
  • Drawings, pictures, letters, etc. (Public libraries are a great, and free, resource!)
  • Lids for bottles – It would be nice if the original lids are available, but you can always use cork, small circles of fabric tied with ribbons, etc. for replacement lids. I look for lids that have rubber gaskets in them to keep my spices fresh.

Some people are just so crafty, I don’t know if I would be brave enough to try it. To see the rest of this DIY visit Repurposed etched spice glass jars.
