Make: Upcycled & Personalized Glass Water Bottle « A Golden Afternoon

I am always a fan of a practical project that replaces an expensive purchase. Everyone loves to save some money, right? Since we switched completely over to glass storage from plastic a while back, I immediately got slammed with the price-tag of the fancy glass water bottles. Don’t get me wrong, I really really love our fancy glass water bottles. They are pretty and useful. However, I have only brought myself to buy one for each of us because they are $25-$30!!! So, naturally, I decided to make my own. The kids have taken them to soccer practice, in the car, and anywhere else you would take a plastic water bottle…without the waste.
