This is a glitter bottle based on a craft I made in kindergarten that used crayon shavings and crappy plastic bottles instead of good glitter and glass bottles.  I made this thing over four years ago and it has entertained me with sparkly goodness ever since.  It's very simple and takes only a few minutes to make.

I took a lovely blue glass bottle and sterilized it by rinsing it in hot water.  Then I funneled a few teaspoons of silver glitter into the bottle and filled it with more boiling water, corked it, and let it cool off.  

I did the same thing with a Snapple Elements bottle that I fell in love with.  But, I filled it with larger multicolored sequins in assorted shapes.  When I poured the boiling water in, the sequins tainted the water pink.  I have since lost the bottle, sadly.  
<-- This isn't the actual bottle I made, but damn, I love the lines on the thing.

The crayon shavings were the floaty stuff in the original craft I made in kindergarten.  It was a Valentine's Day project and we used pink, red, and white crayon shavings and cool tap water.  Sadly, that bottle filled up with cloudy green stuff soon therafter.

a couple of teaspoons of white vinegar or vodka in the water should prevent that from happening  Wink

I've done it before with two bottles filled with glitter & beads. This was during a bit of a recouperational period for me (I had surgery on my Achilles' Tendons, 10 years in June). One of the bottles has since been thrown away (My favorite, to be precise), but I keep the suviving bottle on my nightstand.

I would love to try this idea but have a few questions. 1 can you use a plastic bottle instead of a glass bottlec. 2 do you have to use boiling hot water. 3 Could you put something in with the glitter or instead of the glitter.

omg, i just made one of these for my 2 year old daughter! she found my craft stuff, and wanted to play w/glitter, and i had and empty (plastic) soda bottle sitting around, and voila! and now i'm so excited that someone else has done the same thing b/c my husband and friends think i'm nuts for doing it! hurray validation! oh, and she loves it, btw. i sealed up the top w/hot glue, then glued some pretty purple fabric w/pink flowers over the cap. she calls it her "pretty" lol. Cheesy
