I have always had a thing for camo, and I used to drink energy drinks. I saved a bunch of these bottles and I hate to just recycle them but I can't think of anything to make with them. They are much stiffer than a standard soda pop can. Any ideas?

A friend of mine makes flashlights from them. He buys a durable flashlight, takes the components and uses them to make the new flashlight. Mind you, there's some cutting & drilling involved. Pretty cool, I must say....

Paint them, put ribbon or something else around the neck and use them as single-flower vases?

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I would be tempted to use metal shears and cut sections out to make into
jewelry, or other small accessories like keychains, bookmarks, coasters, tie clips, ornaments, etc.  I made star ornaments from beer cans last year, and soldered them together to make puffy stars.
