I really hate seeing the medicine bottles from Target go to waste and would like to know what they can be used for other than keeping screws or such in them. What have others done or might think to do with these? It's such a waste and I figure since the holidays are coming up that it would be fun to create some kind of project with them.

I have an abundance of empty prescription bottles. Does anyone have any ideas for craft projects using these bottles? Does anyone have other suggestions on how to use empty prescription bottles? I just hate throwing them away.

I make a game of them, stack as high as you can to make a pyramid then count them , as the next kid awaits their turn. Each kid knocks down their own pyramid that's their favorite part.

My Mom would let us put 5 or 6 of her clear, coloured plastic beads in a pill bottle, then bake it/ them in the oven until it melted into a circle. We drilled a small hole at the top of the circle, & hung them as suncatcher ornaments.

I am trying to come up with "crafty" ways to make something out of medicine bottles and margarine containers (other than using them to store things in, etc., an actual object). Any suggestions?

I use washed out margarine tubs for the following :-

To store my seeds that I collect in eg runner beans, sunflower

To keep left over foods in the fridge, eg baked beans,

To fill with soil and start off my seeds in them on the window sill

To use as 'saucers' to hold my small plant pots

Empty pill bottles: store q-tips for travel; store jewelry for travel; loose coins for the car console; art school teachers/kindergarten use them; paint the top of the pill bottle-then glue a small flower or beads to the top - put a pretty pair of earrings into the pill bottle as a gift; a paper gift certificate in the bottle; carry band aids in the bottle; paper clips.
