More and more people are making the switch to milk in glass bottles over plastic. This change doesn’t just help the environment and offer better tasting milk – it also allows consumers to channel their inner crafter! That’s right, anyone can start crafting using glass milk bottles with a few tips on DIY glass bottle projects.

Arts and crafts are always fun to do. Here are four crafty and super easy gift ideas we found using glass bottles!

1) Milk Bottle Terrarium

This is the perfect way to re-use a milk bottle. Not only is this gift idea chic and trendy, it is also super easy to recreate.

Start off the DIY by filling up part of your glass bottle with small pebbles. Thos of you near California can find plenty on the beach! Once the small pebbles are placed at the bottom of the bottle, add larger pebbles on top and then soil. This doesn’t just create a visually appealing display but also helps in managing the plants health. Choose a low maintenance plant (such as a succulent, cactus, etc.) and place the plant of your choice right in to the soil.

The neat part is that you can put a twist to this DIY project by using different coloured pebbles or adding decorative accents to the bottle!

2) Peppermint Sugar Scrub in a Milk Bottle

With the help of this sugar scrub recipe, our skin will stay moisturized and healthy all year round!

Now that everything is mixed together, the fun part begins. To add a personalized accent to this DIY project you can create patterns by adding a little bit of food colouring to the sugar scrub.

Changing up the colours is a great way to add your own flare and can be used to emphasis a theme or an occasion.
