Nalgene Up-do *UPDATED*

Yes, I did.  i up-did my Nalgene bottle.  Summertime means my bottle goes into overtime and I see it 
ALL DAY LONG.

This is my bottle before. I tried to rip the bumper sticker off but that's as good as it got.

What you need:
water bottle
mod podge (I used gloss)
your favorite paper
cutting tool
paintbrush

Measure out the height and length of the paper

Paint the Mod Podge on the bottle.  I painted on a section, stuck on the paper, glued, stuck, glued, stuck.  You get the point.

Make sure you pull tight as you go to avoid air bubbles.

Put a final coat of Mod Podge on to seal it.
And there you go, my beautiful new water bottle. 

I tried this with my son's Camelbak water bottle and the bottle started falling off from water condensation.  Not sure if it was due to the bottle or the fact that I was anxious and used a semi cool water bottle.

Let me know how yours turns out.

This is so cute! I have stickers all over my Nalgene. How would your method work when it comes to washing the Nalgene? I'm assuming it can't go in the dishwasher :)

Good question. Handwashing works best. I forgot to add that I put on a couple of coats of Mod Podge to seal the paper. DUH!
