Hello everyone! I've just got finished with chemo, and I've got a million different prescription pill bottles of all different shapes and sizes. Any idea what I could do with them?

I have found tons of uses for these because my dad about a year ago passed away from cancer so he too had many bottles lying around.  I have used some of them for the custom paint color I mix to much of and don't want to throw away I also keep on in my truck for a secret stash of change just in case or maybe you could even spray paint them and put some cedar chips in and give it away as closet fresheners for christmas?

I've used some of them for make-up things, and paint, but, they're so cute (when you don't need what's inside of them) I want to figure something out. Smiley

My embroidery floss was a total mess, in one ziplock bag until I separated the colors and put them each in their own pill container. Next I want to experiment with putting a hole in the lid and poking the end of the floss out so I dont even have to open the bottle to have access to the end of the floss.

I love altering medicine bottles (empty, of course).  Decorating them in all sorts of ways...break out the decoupage and pretty paper, ribbons, fibers, embellishments and they turn into great pieces of altered art.  Or storage containers.  It's super fun and super addictive!   Cheesy

Poke a hole in each lid and insert a twinkle light.

When I was a kid I had a necklace made from a melted pill bottle with a dime in it.  Experiment with melting the bottles?? (I haven't tried it myself--suspect you need good ventilation when you do this.)

I use mine to hold beads since I don't have many actual bead containers.

Cut a hole in middle and put toothbrush in for traveling.  Make small bubble  wand toys for kids or the kid in you.  Mini 1st aid kits. I paint and decorate the container and lid and use for small change.  Let a child grow a bean in one to see what happens underground.
