I had an empty juice bottle - okay I dumped the juice to get an empty juice bottle - it was disgusting juice, and covered it to look like a mini Christmas tree - painted it green (I couldn't find enough green buttons Angry and used buttons to make an angel, 'presents', 'garland', and decorations.  Now when I have money that I want to put in my Christmas shopping fund, I can unscrew the angel cap and drop it in:)
The whole thing:
The angel:
The presents: (made with glossy buttons so hard to photograph)
And ready for the moolah!:

This is my first challenge entry and it was definately fun:)

So cute, and practical!

I love upcycling, thriftiness, and saving for holiday presents.  Seconded - may your Christmas fund grow abundantly!

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.
