Recycle your bottles

I don't know why, but I just can't throw bottles away. I always think they're too cute and just want to keep them forever. So today I bring you some ideas on what to do with them for those of you who have the same problem.

Fill them with candy

You can fill them with small candy like m&ms or gummy bears, or with candy that sticks out.

Paper stars

If you don't know how to make a paper star, it's actually very simple. You can watch a video here. You can even add a motivational quote inside each star and open them when you're feeling down.

I didn't fill the whole bottle because I'd just done my nails and... oops! 

Bracelets holder

You can use it as a jewellery display. It will help you keep organised and it looks nice.

Fake flowers

Just insert some fake flowers in the bottle and you've got a pretty decoration. If you have tiger stores in your town, you can actually buy some pens that look like flowers, like the brightest one in my photo.

They don't really require any extra explanations, so I hope the photos were enough to give you some ideas.

Question of the Day

Do you feel the need to keep all your bottles? If so, what do you do with them?

  2. Great idea! In my house we usually wear the bottles either to fill them with water and drink or tomato for example to freeze and other stuff :)

  3. The glass jars in particular are too nice to throw out! I love using them as vases too, to give sort of a vintage feel :)

  9. What great ideas! I love the idea of keeping bottles, but usually don't think of anything to do with them. I did once fill one with a long string of plastic beads meant for decorating Christmas trees, and then standing a bunch of fake flowers in them. I've just discovered your blog and spotted loads more craft/DIY posts on the side, will definitely need to check back when I want some inspiration!
