I use them for washing up liquid, hand wash detergent etc in my kitchen. Not really a craft, but I either put a pour spout like bartenders use or a funky stopper.

I just saw something like that at my Aunts house over the weekend. She had her dish soap in a bottle with a bar spout. I'll have to try that with my empty blue skyy vodka bottles

I turned some old wine bottles into cooking oil bottles.

I cleaned them out REALLY well, and then used spouts that are sold for liquor bottles - like they have at bars - that I got at...crate and barrel, I think.  Pretty cheap.

The fish shaped bottle is my olive oil and the other is veggie oil.  Now I can buy oil in huge containers, but only have these pretty refillable bottles out for use!

Oh, and if you look in the background, you'll see the old starbucks frapaccino bottles that I use to store my dried herbs and spices in.  the perfect size!   Wink

Science, knitting, ranting, and sex.  Not always in that order, and often all at once.

You can put bubble bath in them, rap a ribbon around them and decorate them a bit an then give them to people for presents

if you drill holes in them, they can become an insence burner. you'll want to make positive you use the right bit, obviously. I'm not sure if anything needs be done besides drilling a hole in the bottom, on the side for air convection.

there's a few advantages to having insence in a bottle, rather than the typical burner that looks like a small wooden ski.
-takes up a smaller footprint on dresser/table/etc.
-ash is more neatly contained (I'm always forgetting to dump them promptly, so I knock the ash all over the place)
-smoke poring out of a bottle mouth looks really cool.
-apparently it's safer than the ordinary "ski" burner--probably because it's contained. better if you have critters like kitties, that like to jump on dresser tops.

gee. I never really thought of this before, but I should make some of these. my area only recycles brown and clear bottles, and being a wine consumer, a lot of them get used. I also like burning insence all around the house. hmm.

obviously, you could decorate these insense bottles by painting them with thin layers of paint for a stained glass effect, covering them in fimo (there are some for sale like this on the internet), or etching designs.

hah. I've just inspired myself with an easy craft project.

You could break them and use them to mosaic.

do you just drop the incent thinger in the bottle ?  with a hole in the bottom of the bottle?... that seems simple enough, and doesn't seem to need to cost 10 bucks .. jeeze, stores rip people off too much.

That's what I do with my bottles.. I just drill a hole in the bottom at the side and turn them into incense bottles.. And I use a key ring to put on the top and stick the incense in so it doesnt fall into the bottle and go out..I tried painting them but I didnt have the right kind of paints. So instead i scraped an old scratched cd and mod podged the rainbowy stuff to the bottle..

Now heres what not to do with an old bottle...stick a pretty lily with a short stem inside.  Because then it falls in and wont come out.  And then it gets very moldy.
