Just because you have a lot of beer bottles sitting around your house, doesn't mean you have a drinking problem, it means you appreciate good beer! But I have to admit that when I take out the recycling, the neighbors know it's the Swihart family from the beautiful noise our beer bottles make when they hit the bin! And, let me tell you, it's loud! So I thought it would be a great idea to highlight 2 ways to up-cycle beer bottles, so that we don't disturb the neighbors!!!
1) Take that bouquet of flowers sweet hubby brought home and distribute it,in beer bottles. Tie the beer bottles up in raffia, lace, or ribbon and voila, a center piece. Most importantly you've saved yourself about a 6 pack worth of recycling worries.
2) Cut the bottom of a beer bottle off and use the tops as candle holders. (Tutorial on cutting beer bottles coming soon!) Again add the fluff and you're set!
Now you can tell your friends and family that you have multiple reasons for drinking as much beer as you do... it's not only for the appreciation of a great homebrew or craft beer, but it's a lifestyle. You can now decorate with beer!
