So I have been saving plastic bottles to makes SOMETHING out of..and no good ideas as of yet.  I have thought of dog toys and bangle bracelets (which I just can't seem to get to work!) any other ideas?

Why recycle when you can upcycle?  Totally open to personal swaps, even if we make different stuff!

I made this octopus with my nieces and my nephew.  They loved it.

With halloween coming up you may want to make a gargoyle out of recycled water bottles, newspaper, plastic bags, cardboard and fabric. It took him about 20 hours but they look so real.A full tut is there and is very simple to follow.It takes so long because you have to wait between drying the layers.

Drink bottles make great gift containers. You can cut a U shape into the bottle and make a "'button with hook" type closure. (or just cover the hole with a new label) 2 lt. bottles are my favorite. Remove the labels and create your own personalized label- fill the bottle with goodies- easy as pie and everyone has liked them so far. For my daughters teacher, we are filling a bottle with pens, pencils, dry erase markers, crayons, erasers, etc. and giving this to her during "teacher appreciation week".

Tesslivimama, could you please post a photo of the plastic bottle teacher gift you mentioned in this thread?  I am always looking for handmade teacher gifts and this one sounds great!
