I have an ongoing obsession with mermaids. I used to want to be a cowgirl mermaid. How awesome would that be? Riding a seahorse and whatnot? Yeah.
So for a couple bucks I made a mermaid water bottle out of gold foil envelope seals and a plastic bottle. After taking off the label, I started at the top and worked my way down to the base of the bottle, overlapping the gold stickers at their midpoint in a straight line across as I went down.
