4 Ways to Reuse Glass Bottles

  1. Cover the bottle with painters tape, leaving the middle 1/3 uncovered
  2. Spray open area with chalkboard paint
  3. After the paint has dried, spray a second coat. Let dry, then carefully remove tape and paper
  4. Fill one bottle with oil and the other with vinegar. Top with plastic pourers* and label the bottles with chalk

*Tip: Purchase plastic pourers at your local grocery or party supply store.

2. Bracelet Organizer
Create an easy place to store jewellery that doubles as a unique piece of art. Place a tall, clean bottle on a colourful saucer and secure with glue. When dry, store a collection of bracelets around the top of the bottle.

3. Candlesticks
Design a creative centrepiece for a dinner party. Place a tall candle inside the opening of a bottle. Make sure the candle fits snugly so it’s secure.

Tip: Add colour by dusting a small amount of super fine glitter into each jar or by alternating candle colours.

4. Garden of Delight
Bring brightness to your yard by adding a bottle garden border. Dig a narrow trench around the garden bed and place bottles upside down to create a border. Fill dirt around the bottles to gently secure them in place.

Tip: Weed around the border by hand so the bottles won’t get damaged.
