DIY: Milkaholic Bottles {& Free Printables!}

When I put together the Milkaholic Baby Shower for our friends, I had no idea the overwhelming response it would receive!  So many of you have left kind comments and inquired about everything from the invitation to the food labels, patterned papers and milk bottles.  I am currently working to make the invitation available for purchase (via a third party…  more on that to come! ).  But for now, I thought we’d start off with the milk bottles.

So today we’re sharing instructions for the milk bottles along with a FREE PRINTABLE file for the labels.  Here is everything you’ll need to make some MILKaholic bottles of your own!

Milkaholic Milk Bottles DIY


Frappuccino Bottles
Black Spray Paint
MILKaholic Labels {free printable here}
Adhesive Remover
Black Sharpie


  1. Enjoy a bottle of Frappuccino!
  2. Rinse bottle. Remove label. Spray with adhesive remover (like goo-gone) and let sit for 5-10 minutes.  Scrub off adhesive residue with a sponge or cloth.  Wash the entire bottle and lid in dishwasher.  Let dry completely.
  3. Spray paint lid black.   Let dry completely.
  4. Print Milkaholic labels on sticker paper.  Get the FREE PRINTABLE labels here.
  5. Punch out labels with 1 3/4″ circle punch.  The outer black boarder is thicker than necessary to give you some room for error on the punch.  The final label will have only a thin outer black border.
  6. Affix a label on the top of lid and front of bottle. Enjoy!

If your circle punch is old and dull like mine, the outer black border of the label may have some unsightly white fringe.  Before attaching label, use a black Sharpie marker to touch up any white areas. This will make your final product look more polished!

Don’t fill the bottles with milk until you’re ready to use them. The labels will wrinkle with the condensation that pools on the cold bottle!

    Great idea! Cheaper than buying those milk bottles I see at all these parties. Drinking SB frapp in the meantime is a treat too!

    What a great idea! I can’t wait for your other Milkaholic items to be available! I’m not sure if all Aldi’s will carry them, but our local store carries the generic iced coffee (my husband likes them!) and the lid is already black!

    To help with a dull punch, punch through aluminum foil a couple of times to sharpen it! Learned it from Martha Stewart!

    Is the size already correct once you print these? Also, do you print on label paper? Thx!

    Do you have other free printables/templates for the tent cards,the bottom of the candy favors, or favor tags? If not….could you provide them or something similar for those of us that are throwing showers on a budget?

      These are definitely one-time use when it comes to the printables. The labels will absolutely come off with water! But the bottles can be used over and over, if you want.
