what about that spray paint from Krylon that is supposed to stick to plastic lawn furniture, wouldn't it work on a milk container? It's worth a try.

LOVE this idea. You could even use those shaped paper punches to get shaped sequins! Oh man. I want a set of punches now...

I don't know that I'd want to drink the kinds of things that come in nice shiny bottles, at least not in this country - they are mostly fizzy and revolting. I'm thinking two sheets of plastic could be glued to tinfoil to get shine (one either side of the foil). Though it might make rather thick sequins, and might not fit in the hole punch...

I think it wouldn't work. Even the just a little bit thicker upper part of the bottle is already too thick for my puncher. Moreover, even if it would work, I think the foil would detach easily.
But in proper light even these simple sequins create nice shine... especially when you have many of them.

This would be cute for my detergent bottle planter, I plan to paint the bottle but will plastic stick to plastic? especially one that will have water poured into it every  now and then to preserve the plant. Will super glue work? Ok i need ideas, thanks.

So if you have all the needed things, you can do them, too. Wink Yes, the colour is very nice - I expected a bit darker seeing the bottle, but these are better!

Brilliant idea...and a great way to recycle!  I have a little flower punch that I've been neglecting!  It would be perfect for making flower sequins Cheesy
