Customized Water Bottles for Kids

As soon as the sports season hits, I find that keeping up with whose is whose water bottle a constant battle!

Where did it go?  Someone on the team drank from mine!

To keep from sharing germs, pulling my hair out because ‘I can’t find mine’ is all I hear, I have decided that customized water bottles is the way to go.

How to Personalize a Water Bottle

This is only a 3 items needed project.  Water bottle, Duct Tape, and scissors to cut

1)  Cut off label on the water bottle

2)  Wrap duct tape around the bottle and cut with scissors just past the overlap

materials needed to customize your water bottle

You can choose one tape per person– so they know exactly which one is thiers, or you could write their name in black sharpie across the new label.

I have used this before at showers, family gatherings {for a fun color pop}, or as a thank you…..just add a simple tag at the top with a few words.


With so many designs out there in tape right now, the possibilities of customized water bottles, customized binders for school, pencil wraps and flowers…the list goes on….it’s endless!
