Anyone know what to do with these? I recycle them, but I am sure something can be made from them.....Any ideas?

Just a thought....

If you happen to know someone who is an insulin-dependent diabetic...........you could paint and decorate them and gift them as they are.  We use them to store used hypodermics until we can drop them off at the proper disposal place,  i.e. a doctor's office,  hospital,  or fire station.  Smiley

One year, I saved all my white plastic bottles, took off the labels, cut them down so I had a flattish part, and cut out various sizes of stars to hang on the evergreens around the house for Christmas.  Free and almost indestructible.

If you know anyone who boats (small boats like canoes, skiffs, etc) they can use them as bailers.  Leave the cap/lid attached, cut off the flat bottom, and they can use them to scoop water out of the boat.

This bracelet tutorial is made from shampoo bottles, I don't see why you can't use laundry detergent bottles.

I enjoy making my own beads from recycled materials. Also, designing with wire.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

Wow, lots of great ideas! I have cut the top part off kind of at an angle leaving the handle and used them to store crayons and such in the kid's play room. I have one sitting by the big chalk board in there now full of chalk. I have also taken them camping and the kids put shells, pine cones, rocks whatever they find in there. I'm definitely going to make one of the watering cans!
