How To Decorate Water Bottles For Baby Shower
It’s free and easy to use Canva’s label maker. You can use their templates to make custom water bottle labels for the baby shower favor.
- Open Canva and search water bottle label
- Select from their templates to find the best design for the party theme
- Customize and edit the template accordingly
- Experiment with different colors, fonts, and backgrounds to make the water bottle stickers more fitting with the baby shower theme
- Edit the water bottle by writing short wordings (e.g., “Thanks for celebrating [guest of honor]’s baby shower” or get creative with the information using puns suitable for a baby boy or girl)
- Save the water bottle label as JPG and download it as a PDF for printing
Where To Get Personalized Water Bottle Labels
If you don’t have printers and labels at home, you can get custom water bottle labels from some printing companies. For example, try Sheet Labels with locations in New York and Texas.
You can choose between printed or using the company’s label software and templates for baby shower water bottle labels. The latter is an option if you already have a home inkjet or laser printer.
But for those who want readily available water bottle labels, you can order between sheet and roll options. They come in different sizes, materials, label quality, and shipping time, starting at $1.99 for each label piece.
What Can I Use To Print Water Bottle Labels?
It’s possible to use Canva or a printing company’s software with readily available templates to print water bottle labels for the baby shower at home. The recommended printer is inkjet or laser, and the type of labels will depend on what size will look best with your baby shower water bottles.
For example, choose between sticker paper or glossy photo paper for the labels. If you’re giving away 16-ounce water bottles for the baby shower, a label measuring 8 by 2 inches would be proportional.
For smaller water bottles, then the label can measure 8.25 by 1.75 inches. Test the prints beforehand to avoid wasting paper.
Amazon also has wrap-around labels you can buy, which are printable at home. For under $21, you’ll get 40 pieces of matte white rectangular labels.
Where Is The Best Place To Buy Water Bottles For A Baby Shower?
You can buy empty and refillable water bottles on Amazon and then purchase the label papers for customizing them as baby shower favors. Alternatively, you can buy bottled water packs in the grocery and then remove their labels manually to save you time refilling the water bottles with water.
This will take time, but you don’t need to worry about the sticker residues from the labels, as your new labels cover them. To give you an idea of the price, 20 pieces of 16-ounce clear bottles on Amazon costs $33.99, while a 24-piece pack of 16.9-ounce bottled water in Walmart costs $3.48
Considering the budget, you’ll save on costs by buying a bottled water pack and removing its labels. And if you want other DIY alternatives for the gifts for guests, read how to make a baby shower favor.
How To Gift Wrap A Water Bottle
If you’re giving a water bottle as your baby shower gift, there are many ways to wrap it so it wouldn’t be apparent. Instead of a box or paper bag, you can use a cardboard tube and plugs.
Slide the water bottle inside the tube and cut the excess cardboard. Press and insert the plug on the other end of the tube and tape it outside.
Select a pastel-colored paper or wrap that matches the baby shower theme and cover the tube with two-sided tape. Cut off the excess wrap and insert the water bottle inside the tube.
Cover the tube’s opening with the other plug to finish the baby shower gift. You can add a bow and other decorations to make your water bottle gift tube look cuter.
What Do You Fill Baby Bottles With For Baby Showers?
You can give baby bottles filled with goodies as your favor for the guests. If baby bottles are your gift, you can add items as bonus goodies for the baby.
- Mini toys
- Dried flowers
- Salt art
And that’s it! You just learned how to decorate water bottles for baby shower by printing labels designed with Canva.
It would help if you had an inkjet printer and sticker paper for this project, but some printing companies can also do the prints for you. And for the water bottles, it’s more cost-efficient to order bottled water from the grocery and remove their labels than buy empty bottles.
