Introduction: Recycling Those Cool Glass Soda Bottles!

About: This box provides word's about me, myself and I.....For instance, My name is Amanda, but most people have adapted to calling me "Manda" (quotations added for dramatic effect.) as they seem to not posses the ...

Upon drinking tons of coke and orange soda out of glass bottles (because it tastes better in a glass bottle) I decided to keep them since I knew I would find some use for them! Lo and behold I did.

Step 1: First Use

Not much needed for this, just a clean soda bottle and a field to frolick in.
Take bottle, fill it with water, go to a field, and pick some pretty flowers.
We happen to have a field of wild flowers in my backyard, so I just went out there and fought with some bees to pick a few pretty flowers.
Voila! A beautiful vase.

Step 2: Second Use

This one requires a few more supplies, we will be making terrariums!

Step 3: Supplies

You will need the following:
Long tongs, Mine were made out of coat hangers.
Glass bottles (if that wasn't a given)
Sand, Soil, Activated Charcoal, Pebbles, Moss, and whatever else you decide you want in your terrarium.

Step 4: Time to Get Your Hands Dirty!

Now it's time to add your layers, I looked a tutorial as to what layers to add, I did pebbles, charcoal, sand, soil then moss.

Step 5: One More Step, Optional of Course

Want to get that Pesky bottle label off?
You will need acetone nail polish remover
Some gauze
and a razor and/or edge of a knife.
