Okay, I am dense, I have never seen lights in corona bottles, do you just stuff in there as many xmas lights as you can?  Or just do one?

However you want.  I think my friends dad has those icicle lights w/ 1 icicle in each bottle.

I had a few of these bottles laying around also. I took my dremel and etched a kitchen theme on it (lettuce, carrots and peas i think it was). Once you etch glass you can go over it with markers and wipe off and it will leave a pastel color on the etching. I filled mine with flour so you can see the print. It looks cute on my kitchen shelf. It would be cool to etch like a coffee cup on it and fill with instant coffe, frap or cuppacino mix and give for gifts.

I teach Special education for k-3 students. I bought a case of those starbucks frappuccinos in glass bottles. I thought the bottles were a waist of glass and didn't want to waste them. So i have been collecting them trying to think of something I can do with them, Then thought maybe I can do something with my class maybe for mothers day or just another project.
Does anyone have ANY kind of ideas? (besides flower pots and layers of colored sand)

thanks!

You can modpodge tissue paper to the outside and use them as vases for Mother's day.  or make candles out of them - fill with wax and add a wick.  but that might not be classroom friendly.  hmm... there's got to be like a million things you can do with them but I just keep think craft storage.

Here is a picture of them...I still have plenty more in the fridge waiting for me to drink them...



I thought of candles as well but its just not classroom friendly...especially for my little guys. We might just end up doing the tissue paper glued to the sides and put  fake flowers in it. Or we may make paper flowers with some pictures of the kids on them.
(we are going to be growing flowers in two weeks so maybe i can figure a way to transplant them in the glass)

I just want to do something different this year. Thanks for those ideas =)

How about if the kids put a bunch of trinkets inside (little plastic hearts, letters to spell out MOM, flower beads, etc.) and then fill them with sand. Glue the caps on. Then, have your studens write a "Can you find..." list of all of the items in the jar (ex. a blue M, a red O, a white M, a pink heart, a red heart, a yellow flower, etc.).

If you had some polymer clay, each child (with help for the younger ones) could make a shape that is for their mom's favorite thing. Then you could bake them and they could be added in before it was sealed shut.

Because the jars are not too big, it wouldn't take too many trinkets. You could have the kids make tissue flowers to glue to the lid to cover it up.

Mom and child can work together to find the items in the jar by shaking and rolling the jar.

ooh!  I just thought of another idea for you!  How about snow globes?  You could make them more seasonally appropriate by doing flowers instead of snow - maybe you could use flower shaped beads or some little fake flowers.

snow globes would be cute..and the students could do most of the work. We can put pictures of the kids and flowers like you said. i think i might try that and see how hard it is to make. Thanks!

Thanks for the ideas guys..Its helping a lot
