35 Water Bottle Crafts

By: Melissa Conner, Editor of

Dive into the recycling bin and gather up those plastic water bottles.  With these 35 Water Bottle Crafts, you can do anything from decorating and organizing your craft room to making lovely decor with your kids!  Create one or more of these fun Earth-friendly craft ideas, all made from empty plastic bottles!

33 Water Bottle Crafts

  1. Cut the bottoms off of bottles that have 5 or 6 bumps on the bottom and paint them to look like snowflakes.
  2. Use the 5-6 bump bottle bottoms to store small items, like jewelry and beads.
  3. Cut the top off of liter bottles and use them as greenhouses by placing them over sprouting seedlings.
  4. Use them to make birdfeeders.
  5. Cut the bottoms off of water bottles and dip the bottle into soapy water. Blow through the hole where you would drink the water to create your own bubble blower!
  6. Turn water bottles into a piggy bank. Cut a small slit in the top to place the coins and simply unscrew the top to remove the change inside.
  7. Make your own lava lamps! Fill the water bottle about ¾ full with vegetable oil then add water. Add 10 drops of food coloring. Break an Alka-Seltzer tab into four pieces and drop one in at a time and wait for each to dissolve.
  8. Decoupage some tissue paper on water bottles to create luminaries! You can cut the top or bottom of the bottle off and put a fake tealight inside for great outdoor décor for all kinds of parties.
  9. Fill empty bottles with sand and place them in your knee high boots to keep them from falling over in your closet! This is a great way to prevent creases from forming in your shoes.
  10. Make your own I Spy game by filling an empty bottle with rice, beads, buttons, small toys, and more. Shake the bottle and see how many things you can find in five minutes! This is a great game for road trips.
  11. Use empty water bottles to store all your beads. This is storage and decoration all in one, since the colors of the beads shows through the plastic bottles. Group your beads by color and arrange on a shelf for practical and decorative storage!
