Slideshow: Eight MORE Craft Projects for Plastic Bottles

Maybe it’s the sweltering summer heat, but we’ve got bottles on the brain. We’ve talked about repurposing plastic bottles in your crafting before, but those suckers are just so versatile, it felt like time to see what other ideas we could come up with!

    ps: Forgot to mention. 1st time users will need to register to access full idea description. This one is worth it as it won a big competition… a great way to stack and protect fragile crockery

    These would be great as gift boxes too!

  4. Hi

    As a keen seed grower, I cut my plastic bottles up with pinking shears to make slug proof walls around tender young plants. I have found that they need to be at least 6 inches high to work effectively

    Aw man, I can tell you’re a cat owner. Using plastic bottles as a dog chew toy is a really dangerous idea, especially if you decorate the bottle. The dog will end up ingesting slivers of plastic (or whatever decorations you use) when they chew on it, which can lead to intestinal blockages and perforations. It’s basically an instant recipe for a $12,000 vet bill and/or a dead pet :(
