Step 1: Put the paintballs into the bottle

Make sure the bottle and the paintballs are clean and completely dry. I used a Fuze bottle because I liked the size and shape.

Step 2: The bottlecap

Picture of The bottlecap
I painted my bottlecap with two coats of acrylic paint and tacky-glued on little plastic rhinestones for some bling. You could use buttons, beads, duct tape, or any other do-dads to decorate yours.

Step 3: Final touches

Picture of Final touches
Tie a ribbon around the neck of your bottle and you're done! Some other ideas I had for decorating bottles were:
stripes made from electrical tape
layers of different colored paintballs
replace the bottlecap with a paintball gun plug

i rather just give them to my friends and tell them that they're gumballs lol
lol, That's awesome, but kind of mean. Have you ever tasted a paintball?!
They are nasty, the paint seeped through my mouth guard, I almost puked. YUCKY.
I always get shot in the mouth every time I'm breathing heavily and the paint tastes like soap and plastic shrapnel.
you can get green apple flavored pantballs, the sitll dont taste good but ALOT better than normal
LOL AWESOME
i just want to advise you that paintballs are not disigned to eat second it can be gross and unhealthy becuase of that it's case and paint is not proper neutrition,and thirdly you can choke on the casing and the thickness of the paint and get posioned from the vegi oil possibly now i am not stopping you and am not blaiming you so it's not bossy i am also just making a nodice or safety so i am not reponsible for your actions
They're non-toxic, just like dirt. If you eat enough, you'll still die. I assume most of us aren't idiots.

Paintballs do taste pretty good, though.

they do? they smell bad to me
Bran nerfer1926 years ago
Perhaps it's an acquired taste - they have a sour/bitter taste, but that's what make them different.
I didn't know that you could eat them. Or can you?
Most are non-toxic, so yes, you can. Makes your poop tie-dye though....

TMI TMI!!!!!

That's....disturbing.
I didn't want that picture in my head.

Yes, paintballs are edible. I wouldn't recommend eating a lot of them though. Plus, they really don't taste very good. They can, however, make you some money on a bet.

I'm still don't believe it totally.
And this is why you shouldn't make ads that are so cool so as to become unbelievable. Google: V paintball ad. Go to the link that has the catchphrase "starts with v." Then see the entire thing being made and tested
Sorry, I didn't realise my terrible grammar in my last comment. What does your comment mean, what am I supposed to do?
Google the following 12 letters, 14 if you count spaces: V energy drink. Then go to the 6th link, under the pictures, that says, startswithv.com. Sorry I got the search text wrong on the last comment
It was! I've seen the design, not far from where I live. They did a whole lot of things like that
it's for collecting besides then you have a way of storage and a work of art to symbolize efforts an creativity

hmm what to do with 2000 paintballs...
35Timmy shveet2 years ago
again it's for collecting besides then you have a way of storage and a work of art to symbolize efforts an creativity from my view it's okay to joke around just do not get too dirty for the policys and also add to the comment that it's a joke

Lots of decorations?

Just a note they WILL degrade and fall apart after a while
well you can use a lot of hot glue and eventually it will dry to secure it then you can cut off the extra glue so you can open it and will make it more child safe for those who have kids that are little just please be carefull by only using a enough glue to do a small amount at a time and enough space and enough time so it drys for every part so no one gets burnt unless you are wearing oven mitts remember i took science glass so i know safety
