Bottle Cutting Project
Recycle old bottles at home with this activity
Special occasions call for a drink or two, but what are we to do with all those empty bottles after? Turn some of you lovely bottles into decorative containers that will hold more than just wine. Use them as votive candleholders, desk catchalls, penholders, flower vases, or as containers for your cooking utensils.
