2. Pill Bottle Light Garland

I love this take on garland lights for the bathroom mirror. If you’ve got a big collection of bottles, remove the labels and use a drill or dremel to make holes in the bottoms, then string them up on a strand of LED Christmas lights for a kitschy lighting solution.

Why use LED lights? They use less energy than standard Christmas lights and they burn cooler, which is a good idea when you’re putting them close to light plastic like a pill bottle.

  1. I sew and use them as sharps containers. Use a permanent marker to write “SHARPS” on the sides and top. I have a small “travel size” bottle to take with me and a larger bottle at home.
