Introduction: Bottle Bottom Phone Stand

An easy phone stand transformed from an empty PET bottle for my 6.3" screen Samsung Mega phone.

Materials:

  1. A 2-litre PET bottle of any soft drink. Selection of bottle size may vary according the phone size.

Tools:

  1. Cutter
  2. Scissors

Step 1: Cut the Bottle Into Shape

Cut the bottle along the dotted line and the stand is done. Requires no glue, no screw.

Step 2: Place the Phone on Stand

The stand supports 2 orientations.

For Portrait view, rest the phone inside the bottle.

For Landscape view, rest the phone on the notch.

If a smaller bottle is used, both views may need to rest the phone on the notch.

Step 3: Different Viewing Angle

In case of using rubber made protective case, it gives a firm grab between the phone and the stand holding it in the desire angle.

As the base of the stand is round in shape, it gives a flexibility to fit different sizes of phone.

Great innovative way to repurpose! I made mine just a bit deeper and poured about 1 1/2 cups of plaster of paris in mine for weight.

Terrific! By chance I have just cut the top off a 2 litre water bottle to use as a funnel to dispose of waste cooking oil in a milk container. Now I have a use for the bottom! Thanks for a great idea.

Yes. It looks like holding a rubber slippery against my face when answering a call. LOL
