A cool treat mint for you

 Is'nt this so cute. I wish I would of thought of this but I guess I overlooked what you can do with empty 2 liter bottles. lol Sorry I don't know who to give credit to I was surfing and came upon this.
Anyway take two bottles cut at bottom of both they will connect back together easily. then just paint add embellishments if wish. I added candy mints in mine for a cute gift. I think they glued theres together but I wanted something you could use after the candy is gone for decoration.
Here it is with the lid off. hugs
