Don’t ya just love all the adorable milk bottle DIYs? They are so stinking cute and I can’t get enough! So when I ran across some in the “dollar section” at Target, I didn’t waste any time putting them in my cart. (My only regret is that I didn’t buy them all!)
I knew exactly what I was going to do with these bottles. I’ve got two special little ones who are near and dear to my heart and by gosh, they needed some Milk bottles for Santa!
Since it’s Christmas and I was making some for the kiddos, I thought you needed a little freebie too. So join me in this very easy DIY with Free Santa Milk Jug Cut File!

Here’s what you’ll need:
- Milk Bottles – you can pick these up at Target or your local craft store. You can also find some cute ones here.
- 651 Gloss Vinyl of your choice – I purchase ALL of my vinyl from My Vinyl Direct.
- Transfer tape – I use contact paper from Dollar General. Why? Besides the obvious benefit of only being $1, it’s also clear and far easier to see where you’re placing your vinyl.
- Silhouette Machine with Silhouette Studio Designer or Business Edition
- Silhouette Studio Free Cut File which you can get here. SVG Cut File here. (Feel free to use this file for personal or commercial use, but please do not sell the file.)
(I apologize for this horrible picture of what’s needed. My camera doesn’t seem to understand what I am wanting it to do!)
- Open your Free Santa Milk Bottle Cut File in Silhouette Studio.
- Add the name of your choice. I used Century Gothic Font for the names, but you can mix it up and use whatever font you’d like. If you need help adding text in Silhouette Studio, you can learn here.
- Cut your vinyl (you do not mirror this).
- Weed your vinyl.
- Pick it up with transfer tape and apply to milk bottles.
Important tip: fill the bottle half way with water so you have a line to help put your vinyl on straight.
That’s it! Easy enough….right?!
How cute will these be sitting out for Santa to enjoy?!
If you’re looking for more help with your Silhouette machine, I highly recommend Melissa Viscount’s books (from Silhouette School Blog). She has an array of e-books that walk you step-by-step through the process of creating your own masterpieces! You can find them here.
Thanks for stopping by and joining me for this easy Santa Milk Bottle DIY today!
