A couple weeks ago, I saw this cookie plate and milk jug set in a magazine.
I loved the idea of having a plate and milk jug for Santa, but at $19.99 this one was more than I wanted to spend. So I started thinking about how I could make my own version.
I had a flash of inspiration as I was throwing a Frappucino bottle into the recycle bin and I knew I had struck upon a perfect plan.
Cookie Plate & Milk Jug for Santa
For this project you will need:
1 Frappucino bottle
1 clear plate ($0.99 at Ikea)
Hard Coat Mod Podge
Remove any labels from plate. Wash and dry plate thoroughly.
Next, you need to create the image for your bottle and plate. You could use anything. Cut pictures from wrapping paper, old Christmas cards, stickers, etc. I choose to create mine using my Cricut.
Your bottle label should measure 8 1/2″ X 2 12/”. Spray the back of your bottle label with spray glue and wrap it around the bottle, pressing tightly as you go. I added the snowman at the end of my label to help cover up the crease.
No matter how many times you use Mod Podge, you will now inevitably think you have ruined your project.
The Hard Finish Mod Podge needs to “cure” for 4 weeks, after which it can be wiped off with a damp cloth. Start now and I think you will be fine to use it for Christmas!
I just love the way this project turned out. Leaving cookies and milk for Santa was a huge deal when I was a kid and I know my son is going to love this new tradition.Does this version seem a little too crafty for you?
