What can you do with these, besides throw them into the recycle bin?
Or if you cut the bottom off, what can you do with these?
Maybe you’re looking for an inexpensive craft ornament to make with kids.
We made these a few years ago and Boo and I decided to make these again, to show you how.
What you need is…
- clean plastic bottles
- glitter glue
- hole punch
First, get some plastic bottles, rinse them out and cut the bottoms off. They can be big two liter size or the smaller bottle size. I have used both and bottles with different colors and shapes. They all work well.
Make sure they are dry.
Punch two holes, side by side in the side to thread the ribbon through to make a hanger.
Then decorate the bottom with glitter glue and let dry. Usually takes a couple of days.
At this time, you can decide to add more glitter glue on top of the already dry glitter glue. Or leave as is.
Then add the ribbon for the hanger and you’re done.
It’s not something that’s real time consuming for them, so this is good for a child with a short attention span.
Christmas comes but once a year, the time is short for making memories with your children. Make the most of what you have. You don’t need a lot of money. Love and time make the best memories.
