DIY Zoo Animal Water Bottle Labels for Kids

If you ask folks who know me well, they will tell you I love myself a theme. I get all into it! And a family trip to the zoo is no exception. Here’s how I made the kids zoo-themed water bottles…without some fancy machine! (But if you have one, lucky ducky!)

– Water Bottles (I used reusable plastic bottles for the kids, like these)
– Silhouette printable sticker paper
– Home printer
– Craft scissors

This is a super easy project! I have created the FREE downloadable water bottle graphics in both color and black and white. Feel free to use these for personal use only!









Follow the directions on the Silhouette printable sticker paper AND remember to let it dry for 15 (or more) minutes!

Cut the sticker to fit the size of the water bottle. Peel off the paper backing.

Place the clear sticker onto the water bottle doing your best to limit the finger prints (which show on the label. Lesson learned there!)

    These are adorable! And perfect for a huge animal lover like my little boy! My hubby bought me the Silhouette Portrait for my birthday (after lots of hints here and there haha), I will definitely be doing these! Love those little paws ❤ Visiting from the Fire Station Link-Up Party =)

    Cute idea. My kids have been on a panda frenzy lately, so maybe I’ll do something similar with the new water bottles I got them for school. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party this week. Pinned!
