Water Bottle Storage


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.

you actually sewed ribbon ON the bottle with your sewing machine? Did you use a "special" needle?

Hi there, From the image, it appears that the ribbon is sewn onto the bottle. I will double check with the blogger and update the product if needed. Thanks!

What a Very Good Idea with Old Records Off the Shelf Water Fountian I'm going to try it. Thanks for sharing.

what do instead of wine cork you use if yourself and people around you do not drink

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.

I could not see the pictures clearly. The finished project is heard to see what is what....

Its a good idea how long will it last I save all of my bottles for my plants they last three years a time keep up the good work

I tried to enlarge the photo of the finished project for more detail, no luck..gues I'll have to use my imagination! Awesome idea thou, I want to go organize my craft room and try this but can't, need some items and weather outside is toooooo gorgeous!

Is there a way to enlarge the picture? I can't tell where the bottles are in the finished product. :(

Excellent alternative to recycle

Excellent pictures - really make the instructions.

The bottoms of the bottles can be used as pot saucers under plants.
