Starting this blog has brought about a few changes in my life. I have tried a bunch of great craft beers, been able to express myself in a written medium, and have amassed a giant, hoader-level pile of beer bottles. My building doesn’t recycle, and after learning about the sustainability efforts of these environmentally friendly beer companies, it feels like a big “F-You” just to throw them in the trash. So, living in the great age of “upcycling”, I set about trying to find ways to re-purpose the old bottles into something useful and crafty.
I thought long and hard and came up with the following ideas:
DIY Vampire Repellent
Hyper-realistic dinosaur model
Ship in a bottle (just add ship)
Hear that? It’s the sound of a thousand Pinterest boards being updated with these beauties.
Turning to the internet for more inspiration, here are 4 more projects to put your left over bottles to good use:
Beer Bottle Chandelier
From thebachelorguy.com, this chandelier tells guests “We may not be no Ritz-Carlton, but we know how to have a good time.”
Beer Cap Cuff-Links
For the man who has everything, except a pair of cuff-links to wear to a black-tie event honoring Jimmy Buffet. Available on etsy.
