I am looking for any ideas that I can make using 8oz plastic water bottles. Any Christmas ideas?

Those are all great ideas. Here is another--make ornaments.

You can do this by cutting out a long oval in the front. Leave some plastic on the sides, top and bottom. Now turn the bottle on it's side (it will be an ornament scene.) Spray paint the bottle any color you like (white, sky blue, red, green, gold, silver, etc.) Add cotton or fake snow to the bottom, put a mini holiday decorations inside and create a mini Christmas scene...use a mini tree, elf, reindeer, etc. and then keep on decorating. You can paste fun decorative scenes in the background that you find in magazines (ads are a great to find cartoon-like holiday backgrounds.) Use ribbon or yarn to frame the oval where you cut it out. Use a hole punch to make a hole at each end of the bottle (while it's on it's side) Put a ribbon through the first hole and out the other. Make sure it's long enough so you can tie to two ends together and hang on the tree. Hide the neck of the bottle with a decorative matching bow.

You can also cut out pictures of family or pets and make cute cut out scenes.

Have fun....

fill with sand and use as weights when exercising, or as doorstops.

They make really good packages for birthday presents or Christmas presents. Slice a hole in the back about 3 inches and then make like shutters so you can get your stuff inside. You can put tissue paper and streamers, confetti, etc. After you get all your goodies inside, tape the hole shut.

I use 2 liter bottles for this all the time.

You can even mail these without putting them inside another box. Just put your return address, mailing address, and postage.

Can be used for storage containers, nails, screw, bolt, nut, small items. Nail or screw the cap to the bottom of a board overhead, then you can unscrew the bottle or screw it on and fill it up as needed, if you tear off the label, you have a great visual on what's inside, great organizing, nail many bottles side by side.
