For our Letters to Santa Party, I wanted to serve the children milk to offset the sweet treats. But I also didn’t want milk accidentally spilled all over the table. This was the perfect excuse to buy myself some Starbucks Frappuccinos!DIY - how to turn Starbucks bottles into party bottles with lids by The Party Teacher

For this project, I recruited my husband (or as I now call him “Vice President of Special Projects, Packaging and Shipping”) and Don gets the credit for knowing how to punch a hole in the Frappuccino cap. (He also gets extra points for coming up with this idea the morning of the party.)


  • Frappuccino bottles
  • Awl
  • Hammer
  • Empty orange juice jug
  • Printable bottle wrap
  • Plastic straws
  • Scrapbooking paper
  • Scissors
  • Circle hole punch
  • Power Glue Stick
  • Scotch tape



1 – Decant the Frappuccino from the bottles. Peel off the front and back labels. Wash the bottles and caps in your dishwasher.

2 – Wash the awl.

3 – Take the lid off your empty OJ bottle. Cover the opening with a bit of paper towel. Place your Starbucks cap over the OJ bottle opening. Place the awl in the center of the Starbucks cap and hammer it until you have a straw-sized hole.



4 – Rewash and dry your Starbucks cap.

5 – Turn a cap facedown on your scrapbook paper and trace as many circles as you need to cover the caps.


6 – Cut out the circles well within the line.


7 – Use your hole punch to punch a circle in the center of your circles.



8 – Apply Power Glue Stick to the outside of the cap and to the underside of the scrapbook paper circles. Press the circles onto the caps.


9 – Print and trim the printable bottle labels. Use Scotch tape to apply the labels to your bottles.

10 – Fill your bottles most of the way with milk. Attach the caps and insert the straws.
