Introduction: Make a Bag Dispenser From a Plastic Bottle
We all have too many plastic bags for our own good. If you are like me, you probably save them for another use, be it for garbage or crafts or doggy bags.
I am going to show you how to recycle a plastic bottle to make a handy bag dispensor for under your sijnk or next to the kitty litter.
This is a great way to re-use something(a bottle) that makes re-using something else (plastic bags) easier.

Step 1: Stuff to Find
All you need to make a bag dispenser like this is a large plastic bottle, a utility knife, and about two minutes.
I used a 1 liter bottle, 2 liter bottles have a greater capacity (duh!), but mine was for a small space and it fit right.
Step 2: Make It
Begin by cutting off the top of the bottle, just a little under the cap.
Now cut off the bottom. Save the little dish you just made, it is great for holding screws or something.
Make a hole somewhere near the old bottom of the bottle, now the top of our bag dispenser.This will be for hanging up the dispenser with a nail or a screw.
You can use your knife to make a hole by twisting it back and forth a few times with just the point in contact with the bottle.
Hang it up on a nail and stuff some bags in it, pulling the first one through the dispensing hole, and now you can go tidy up some other clutter knowing that your plastic bags are a safe and sound.
Share and enjoy.
