About: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...UPCYCLE! I look for ways to creatively reuse and upcycle household items that are normally tossed away in the trash. Some projects I create are useful and some are just for fun.

Pretty and simple. Yet another way to reuse water bottles.

If there is interest I will post the instructions.

Thanks for looking!

Reuse, Reduce, Recycle!!

    I used acrylic craft paint for the project posted. I've also used glass paint, spray paint and pottery paint. They all have interesting effects.
    Clear coat is a varnish. I used 3m's clear coat for this project. It comes in a spray can and is usually found in the art section of craft stores. Sometimes its found with the spray paint as well.

    Best of luck!!

    Nice idea, looks pretty. I love the spring addition. :) I assume you cut the general shape out first then used your lighter for the warped look. I don't think instructions are really called for, your pictures say enough. :) I will definitely have to give this a try next time we buy soda. Thanks for uploading this.

    Its pretty basic. the top of the bottle off. cut from the large open area towards the middle. Shape the edges a little and use lighter to melt them more into shape. Paint the underside and when its dry clearcoat it. :D
