We always have these things around the house we have no idea what to do with because they’ve already exhausted their intended purpose and we tend to just throw ’em out. One of these things is bottles. Glass, plastic or metal. We all have some of these hoarded around in the storeroom of our house.
We always think of reusing them but never really get to it. So here I come bearing simple ideas that may help to reuse them in the simplest, less time-consuming way.
So, let’s see if we can make the best out of waste!
1. Plastic bottles into bracelets
Cut the round part of the body of the plastic bottle in whatever width you need and round off the edges using an iron on medium temperature. All you have to do is paint these rings and use them as bracelets!
There are different ways of creating this from all parts of a plastic or a glass bottle. There’s really no restriction people. Explore your imagination!
3. Simple centerpiece
It’s easy It’s clean. It’s classy. Just stage a few bottles with flowers in the center of the table and see your hall transform.
