Bucket from an Empty Juice Bottle

As the mother of a toddler, I have 8 million empty apple juice bottles lying around. So instead of tossing them, I decided to recycle them.

Supplies:

  • empty juice bottle
  • X-Acto knife
  • fabric
  • hot glue gun
  • trim and embellishments
  • ribbon

Instructions:

  1. First, I cut the top off the apple juice bottle with an X-Acto knife.

  2. I then wrapped fabric around the bottle, securing with a hot glue gun and attached trim on the rim.

  3. For the handle, I punched holes into the side and attached another ribbon.

  4. You can attach any type of decoration you want onto the front.

My daughter loves taking this outside to put her stuff in.

Very creative, April! Your little girl must just love this; and, it is a nice memory for her to look back on once she is grown up. I still remember my shoe box "doll car" and my oatmeal box "cradle" that my dad had made for me when I was about three years old!
