    These are all ingenious ideas. I do not regularly use plastic water bottles, but there are times where it is just easier than carrying my stainless steel blue Illini water bottle.
    During the McDonald’s Late Night Bike Ride, an overnight 25-mile ride through Chicago, there is a contest to see who has the most jazzed-up bicycle. I may just have to borrow your #6 idea and use plastic water bottles for a bicycle wreath.

    The water bottle octopus, idea #3, is my favorite craft idea for kids. My baby cousin is three and a half years old; with a little help, this may be a new, fun and green project for her. Thanks for the ideas!
