8 Ways to Reuse Glass Bottles

8 Ways to Reuse Glass Bottles

My obsession with hoarding bottles is anything but a secret. To me, the best projects tend to be those that can make a big impact all without breaking the bank, which is why I find it so hard to part with materials that I would otherwise recycle. These eight ways to reuse glass bottles present so many new and fun methods of repurposing different bottle shapes and sizes, that my hoarding may start to get out of control (as if it wasn’t already).

      Aren’t they darling?! I love the idea of having multiple shapes, sizes and colors too. It would be easy to change up for seasons and holidays too :)

    I’ve been using a dark root beer bottle for olive oil. The brand that doesn’t have a label just raised lettering /picture. I think it’s IBC. Could work with a neat beer bottle to. It’s not really crafting but it is repurposing …
