I've share before that I make Christmas ornaments out of my empty insulin bottles. Here is this year's edition!!! That is glitter inside of them.

These are regular Novolog bottles. I pop the metal lids off with pliers, peel the labels off and clean the bottles with goo gone to get the adhesive off. I've been doing this for over 20 years. Have used them for teacher's gifts, friends, small groups, etc.
They're great! So festive & colorful. Love them. Do you have pics of previous ornaments?
I love them. I would love to see what your previous year ornaments looked like. I am a Girl Scout Leader and need ideas for Christmas ornaments for my girls.
Here are some others I have made. Sometimes I print things on address labels. Years ago I put colored sugar sprinkles in, but decided that is a strange thing to have in an insulin bottle!!!

I lead a grief ministry and have put water in the bottles and a scripture about how God "collects all of our tears." I think my favorite is last years—the tiny pom pom balls.

Here is the website (I think) where I bought my corks!!!

I have a size 1 and they are bigger than they need to be. Size 0 should work well.
I love them...so pretty!
