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.

Are these bigger than normal bottles? I cannot tel the scale because of the light, whihc looks so much bigger than what I woudl imagine for a bottle that size?

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.
I love them...so pretty!
i like this year's the best!! very cute!!

They are so beautiful.  I want to do them this year.  Where do you find the corks?

You have more guts than me :-). I've broken a couple of insulin vials in my 30 years with T1 and the smell of an open (cracked open usually) insulin vial makes me feel awful - that I just wrecked the stuff that I need to keep me alive.

 

All that said, I'm gonna try to work up the guts/bravery to intentionally pry open a bottle and decorate similarly, you gave me the courage, thanks!!!

haha. I can honestly say that it has never occurred to me to do this. They're cute! If I had known about this when I was diagnosed, I could have probably made enough ornaments over the years to fill my tree, my parents' tree, and several friends' and relatives' trees! ;-)
wow! how cool.very nice. thanks for sharing.
