Cute Water Bottles and Water Balloons Ice


This was so cute and fun to make for our BBQ party. I bought 2 cases of water bottles and had all my boys take off the labels. Then we bought this cute Butterfly Duct Tape, yes that is Duct Tape, and re-labeled the bottles. Everyone Loved this little detail! 

FYI- 1 roll of Duct Tape covered about 40 water bottles. Not the whole 2 cases, 24 pack.

 For the Water Balloon Ice, we filled up small balloons up with water and froze them in my freezer. I didn't get the actual water balloons cause of their delicate nature to pop easily. Beware, they take up a lot of space in the freezer so make sure you have room. 

FYI- You need to freeze these the day before you use them. I froze these in the morning of our party and they were not all the way frozen.

After the party, the balloons were somewhat melted and the kiddos enjoyed a water balloon fight. This is perfect for hot summer parties! Just make sure you pick up the balloon scraps after the fight. ☺

What a wonderful idea. I didn't realize they made duct tape like that. I'm going to have to look into that. I never thought about using balloons that way either, that's genius.

Love this post!
