Dorothy made these western "rattles" for a western-themed Christmas party for her motorcycle club.
She bought round Coke bottles that were out around Christmas time. She cleaned them and took the labels off. Let them dry.
She found western-themed sequins and put some inside the bottle. She also put some poly pellets (used for stuffing bean bag toys) inside the bottle. She decorate the outside of the bottle with western-themed stickers. She found some western trim to tie around the neck of the bottle, but you can use pieces cut from fabric or thicker ribbon. Top it off by gluing a small cowboy hat over the lid of the bottle!
