I have a lot of frappuccino bottles that I have saved and gathered from family members to use as candle holders but the mouth isn't big enough for a votive or a tea light.  Any other suggestions?  I can't bring myself to throw them away b/c there just has to be something that they can be used for.

What about using them as candles, but just adding a wick and melted wax (fill the bottle), instead of using votives or tea lights.  You could also fill the bottom with sand and poke in a skinny taper and use it that way.  Just a suggestion.

Clean them real good after you peal off the labels. After they've dried, paint them white. If you glue an empty Crystal Light container upside down onto the top, it makes a hat. Paint snowman features onto the bottle, and voila, cute snowmen Smiley

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

also if you have cats, they make great grass growers, the cat can only get the grass at the very top so they cant kill the plant, it forces them to wait for it to grow

If you have the lids, you can paint them and put in these candle insert things http://www.nationalartcraft.com/subcategory.asp?gid=5&cid=257&scid=1116 and still use them for a candle. You can decorate the inside of the bottle however you wish.
