Water Bottle Jewelry

Level: Super Simple

Designed by: Heidi B www.cool2craft.com

This is another very clever idea by one of my all time favorite designers Heidi B. I have watched her for years and have learned how to look at trash a completely different way. You will be amazed at all the things you can do with plastic water bottles. This is just the beginning! Thanks Heidi!

Supplies:

Plastic water bottle
Scissors
Different colors of felt
Glue

Instructions:

  1. Cut out a bracelet from the bottom of an empty water bottle.
  2. Cut small squares of felt to cover the plastic and glue to the bracelet.
  3. Make flowers by cutting a small strip of felt and rolling it into a circle. Put a dab of glue as you start and when you get to the end. Let dry.
  4. Glue your flowers to the bracelet.
  5. No one will ever know it’s a water bottle bracelet


 

 

Old Jeans Re-purposed


Before you throw out those used up and torn jeans, see what Terri O can do with them. You will be inspired.  Watch HERE.  Or, see directions below:

Here are a few tips:

  • Keep certain parts intact. For example the fly, pockets, labels and tags, belt loops and any embellishments.
  • Cut out areas bigger than you think you might need them.
  • To stiffen fabrics use a fabric stiffener. You will find it at the craft store. There are a few brands.
  • If you need to shape the fabric around something adhere it to the item first then brush with fabric stiffener.
  • Here are a few things I made with old jeans: a lamp shade, notebook cover and picture frame.

Have fun and get creative! Send me pictures of your recycled jeans projects.
