Water Bottle Storage



Upcycle some water bottles into storage instead of letting them sit in land fills. You can have an organized craft room while being green if you recycle containers with water bottle storage.

Water Bottle Storage


  • Plastic Bottles
  • Scissors
  • Wine corks
  • Peg hooks
  • Ribbon or fabric and sewing supplies (optional)
  • Pegboard


  1. Cut off the bottom of any narrow mouth bottle.


  2. Next dig up some corks around the house… or if you don’t have any… get busy drinking! I used my hand held straight edge razer to notch a star shape into the end.

  3. I then pushed my peg hook into the cork (much easier with the star cuts! trust me!)

  4. I decided to dress up the ends and attached a 1.5″ grosgrain ribbon… (fabric would be great too!)

  5. Insert the hook into the bottle mouth.

  6. OR you can attach the hook to the pegboard and then push the water bottle onto the hook with cork.

I cut water or other drink bottles to use the tops as funnels for beans and spices that tend to clog my other store-bought funnels.
