Perfect Little Milk Bottles

Here is a popular idea that came from However, many people have wondered where to find little individual sized milk bottles. It is possible to find them in thrift shops but this makes it difficult to get a lot at once, or have them all look alike, so I decided to find an alternative.
I found these 4-packs of Starbucks Frappuccino that are the perfect shape and size(9.5 oz), and pretty affordable at around $5 per 4-pack at Target. The labels peel off easily and I spray painted the lid silver to give it that classic look. I also ran the bottle through the dishwasher and still had to use the rough-side {the “scrubber” side} of a sponge to remove some sticky residue where the label had been. It does come off easily, though.  Fill with milk and enjoy your individual milk bottles for kids birthday parties, a cookies and milk party, even a brunch get-together.

UPDATE:….here’s how they look all dressed up!…I used them in my Kids Candy Christmas party here, and also created milk “ghosts” for a Kids Halloween Treats table here…

    I love this idea! I’m planning on using these bottles next week at my son’s birthday party! How did you get the stamped best by date off though? Thank you so much for your help!

    OMG! How lucky am I to come across this post in my “milk bottle” google search. I jumped for joy and ran to the fridge because I happen to have 4 of these little fraps that I just picked up for the week…love iced coffee in the summertime. These will be perfect for my DD’s princess party next weekend. I was about to shell out some serious cash for some bottles and these popped up on my screen. How perfect! Thanks so much for sharing even though I’m two years late. I love your blog and have been an avid reader and subscriber for a year now.

    I am doing all the desserts for my daughter’s wedding and I’ve been trying to find a small milk bottle for a “cookies and milk” tray. These would be so perfect. I’m going to fill them and put them in little silver tubs with ice. Thank you for a great solution!

      Yavonna, these would be cute with almost anything sweet and edible inside. Think small candies like m&m’s, hot cocoa mix, kids cereal mix like cheerios + fruity pebbles, etc.
      Hope that helps.

      As I mentioned, I had to use a rough sided sponge to get the residue off. The kind that’s green on one side (the “scrubber” side).
