Up-Cycled Outdoor Tree Decorations

 My Mom's house has an outside tree/bush that just screams for some Christmas decorations!
Little Mister and I started collecting empty water bottles a few weeks ago. Once we had a few sacks full, we poured a little paint in each, put the lid on tight and then... shake, shake, shake!
I added a loop of yarn around the neck and Ta-Da! A colorful outdoor (a.k.a. water-proof) Christmas tree decoration!
We water-bottle bombed the tree in front of Nonnie's apartment building! 
Surprise!

~I have recently discovered how much fun up-cycling can be! ~
