Intro: What to Do With Leftover Paintballs

Have a lot of leftover paintballs from your last trip to the arena? Display them in a bottle for a sweet decoration!

You'll need:
Paintballs
a clear, glass bottle
ribbons
paint, paintbrush
glue
plastic jewels, beads or other decorations

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

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

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 always get shot in the mouth every time I'm breathing heavily and the paint tastes like soap and plastic shrapnel.

    They're non-toxic, just like dirt. If you eat enough, you'll still die. I assume most of us aren't idiots.

    Perhaps it's an acquired taste - they have a sour/bitter taste, but that's what make them different.

    Most are non-toxic, so yes, you can. Makes your poop tie-dye though....

    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.
