You will need the bottoms of 2 soda bottles...same size.

Cut them at desired height and wash thoroughly.

I cut my tall one at 4" and the short is 2 1/4"

Best way to do it...cut the bottle way higher than desired height.  

Once it is cut all around, it's easier to be precise with the measurement.

You'll need a colored zipper.

Measure the zipper to fit around the circumference of the bottle.

Cut off the "stopper" end of the zipper to length.

Use hot glue and secure some felt on the end of the zipper.

This will keep the zipper from coming off the rails completely, and

it helps make the head of the zipper look pretty...you'll see.

Using Hot glue, just glue that zipper right around the bottle.
Not too close to the zipper track, because the zipper
head needs space to work properly.
