I have always wondered what to do with the little bottles left over from small spray perfumes. If only they opened so I could re-use them! But, still, they are too pretty to throw out and I am always thinking of ways to recycle them. Voila! One little round spray is a perfect fit (put in upside down, of course) as the top for my witch hazel. I always use top. Next step is to see if I could make wine toppers from them.

If you want to make an old-fashioned perfume or lotions container, you can use old perfume bottles from second-hand stores, garage sales, flea markets and etc. A idea for lotions is plastic travel bottles from discount stores. You can get old looking labels from magazines and craft stores. You can tie a ribbon around the handle to decorate with a small button or silk flower in the middle of the bow.

Does anyone have any ideas on what to do with empty Old Spice aftershave bottles? I hate to throw them away.
