25 Days of Christmas and Holiday Series: Day 13

Ring For A Drink Pier One Knock Off

I was shopping for a few little things in my local Pier One Imports store a few weeks back and I saw these...
Drink Bell
I thought, "Oh, I could so buy that bell for a few of my girlfriends, how hysterical!!"  But for $6, I thought it was kinda plain looking.  That same day, I was in my local Dollar Tree and saw these...

Well.....you probably know where this is going.  I bought 5 of them and brought them home for a little The Homeless Finch treatment.  Within 30 seconds, I had one of them out in the back testing my Valspar Spray Paint.  Yep...didn't even set up a proper paint area and YES, there is still red paint over spray on the half dead lawn.  Oh well...

I didn't take this project too seriously.  I painted one red, one green, left one silver, added fine silver glitter to another and hot pinked up the last one. 

I played around with the message portion, handwriting it and in a few cases, trying out stickers.  I top them all off with some sort of bow treatment. 

Here are the results:

This is one silly creation, but why not?!! It's a funny little token gift to take along with you to a holiday party.  After all, it's the holidays!  I girl can have a little fun can't she?  Cheers!
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for my
