All kinds of plastic bottles can be reused in a variety of creative projects. This guide is about crafts made with plastic bottles.
I came up with this idea for a school recycling project. It is made out of a any tall container and filled with flowers cut out of pop bottles.
Approximate Time: 2 days
Now your project is all completed. This is a wonderful recycled project made out of items you have at home!

It is beautiful, what kind of paint will stick to the pop bottles for the flowers?
A couple of questions: what kind of paint did you use on the plastic that would stick for a long while, and what are the petals made from - the extended bottoms of the plastic bottles or tissue paper?
Thanks for a great idea!
This is a great way to use some of those empty water bottles. Fill them with treats then decorate them up a bit, and you have a great package ready for gift giving.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes

This is adorable. You could forgo the split and fill it up with candies, too!
This is a guide about making a plastic bottle bottom sun catcher. The bottom of many plastic drink bottles can be used as part of a kids' craft to make sun catchers.
I saw this in my email this past week and I don't remember who it was from, but it is a perfect way to solve your pop bottle build-up that you were saving for "who-knows-what"
Create a quick pattern from an old business size envelope if you need one, level out the side. (I rounded my corners a little bit). Cut out the circle for the doorknob and you're done.
I applied a little peel-n-stick deco I cut out and also used foil flowers, decorate them however you want to. I want to use some of these in the garden and yard with small potted plants I can hang in trees or off a fence post.
I cut part of the bumps on the bottom off to use that way (about the size of the tip of my pinky finger for drainage).

I can't make out what this is even after looking at the picture enlarged.
Editor's Note: It is the bottom of a green two liter soda bottle, with a long part left on the backside to use for hanging.
I have seen this idea used as a catcher for coffee drips when using the large coffee pot at church. It is safer than paper towels on the floor to catch the drips. Do not cut holes in the bottom though.
Make do with the abundance of garbage we consumers produce in our own homes, using empties and scissors or a craft knife. All eight shows are FREE until decorations are added.
A fab little project for you to make with your children and grandchildren this summer. Make these great little boats and then go sailing!
This is a guide about making earrings from plastic drink bottles. Plastic bottles have many craft uses.
Turn your bowl upside down. Place your container next to it and make sure this is the proper height you need your container. Take a pencil and roll the container around holding the pencil still in place while marking your area.
I have no epoxy glue so I can't glue them together yet, but I like the way it turned out. It would be a cute planter due to its little size and design, very lightweight.
Does anyone have any craft ideas on what to do with empty disposable water bottles? We use so many during the week and I hate to just throw them away.

Buy white plastic paint. Paint the bottle then get a black sharpie draw snowman's eyes a nose and a mouth color the top for a hat and wrap a string around for a scarf then you got a snow man.
Hi, another craft for empty bottles. Fill your bottles with sand or stones and sew dresses of your choices. Like different national dresses oryour own design. Got this idea from the crafts forum challenge in UK. Happy crafting!
This is a way to use any type of plastic stuff: bottle lids, shampoo lids, prescription bottles, aerosol lids, any type of plastic. You take a cookie sheet and line it with foil. Turn your oven on to 450-500 dergees F.
This is a guide about making a zipper plastic bottle container. Make a cute, functional container from a recycled plastic bottle and a zipper.
Now that I've ingested all of this stuff, I've got enormous amounts of energy to do some sort of craft or project with all of the empties. But I don't have any ideas. Do you? Help put my energy and empty bottles to good use!

If you make lotion, they are great for samples, or refill them with shampoos and conditioners for trips!
I would use some for small amounts of paint. Use it for quick touch ups on walls etc., you could put your meds in them for each day, you could maybe use them for a toothpick dispenser in your purse or car, or use to dispense single serve koolaid while at work or eating out. Good luck.:)
