I don’t know about you, but our family goes through a bunch of water bottles in the summer. We are always packing a cooler for outdoor events or for the boat and bottled water is an essential. This leaves us with an abundance of plastic to recycle. Instead of just throwing these empty bottles into the recycle bin, however, there are other creative ways to use them. I love turning trash to treasure and there are many water bottle crafts that will surprise you in their artful designs and functionality.
I went on a hunt for craft ideas that had great design and came up with a collection of unique water bottle crafts.
