I got tired of knocking my brush cleaning bottle over, soaking everything when the water spilled. Repurposing a plastic soda bottle and a plastic soda cup I made a nifty art brush cleaning bottle with a snug fitting lid.
The lid can also be a small container to use for small parts, glue or paint.
Step 1: Materials Needed
A 32 oz plastic soda cup.
Sharp craft scissors.
Be careful when using sharp scissors.
Children may need to be supervised when making this project.
Step 2: Prepare the Cup and Bottle
Prepare your work surface by covering it with newspaper.
Step 3: Cut the Bottle and the Cup
Cut the soda cup above the line leaving a lip of about 1/4 inch.
Step 4: Put the Cup in the Bottle
The lid is a great place to put things like nuts, bolts, nails, beads, buttons, glue or paint.
The bottle can be used as a storage container for many supplies or for water or other cleaning liquid for brushes. if you cut a notch in the lid, it can be a place to hold a brush with paint or glue on it.
When you are finished, snap the lid into place and the container has a snug top. These containers are stackable and you can see the contents.
