Melted Snowman Bottled Water Labels (with free printable)

Need a quick and easy idea for drinks for your kids' classroom party?  Maybe you're having a party at your house this winter and want something cute and simple?  Do you wait till the last minute, but still want something fun?  

Check out how I added a little extra cheer to some regular bottled water...

So cute and super quick and easy.  I made up little labels that I could cut out and stick on the water bottles using regular clear packing tape.  I opted for this method over printing directly on regular sticky labels for a couple reasons.  One, I can never figure out how to get my images the right size to align properly on the labels.  They're always too big, too small or running off one side.  The other, more practical reason, is by using packing tape over the label, I avoid the chance of the ink running and the image being ruined by a drip of water.  I wouldn't put these bottles in a cooler full of ice, but the image should be fine if just a little water spills on it.

All you have to do is pick up a case of water, print out three sheets of the labels on regular printer paper (there's 8 on each sheet), cut them out, and stick them on!  Quick, cheap, easy and you probably have everything you need at home.

Here's a printable of the labels.  (I think I have it set up correctly so if you just click on the image below, you'll have the printable PDF, but let me know if you run into any problems.)

  2. When I printed it only the top left and right images printed properly. On the right hand side it said MDLTED and the A in Snowman overlapped the O & W. and on the left it first printed a D next to the snowman's head then said MELTED but the bottom said ANOWMAN.

    1. Grrr! I hate when stuff like that happens with printables. I'm so sorry. Let me see if I can figure it out today.

    2. I'm not sure why it did that for you. I just tried it again (by clicking on the image on this page and printing the pdf) and it printed fine for me. However, computers are funny and maybe my computer somehow knows it's me and is working fine because the original file is stored on it.

      Let me know if anyone continues to have problems and I can try emailing you the file.
