Creative Ways to Recycle Glass Bottles and Jars
Spaghetti jars? Baby food jars? Pickle Jars? Recycle Glass Bottles and Jars by getting crafty!
It IS easy being green! Everyone has glass bottles and jars just waiting to be recycled in their cupboard. I actually didn’t realize how interesting spaghetti jars and pickle jars were until I peeled off the label the other day. They actually make perfect sized drinking glasses or craft storage containers. Mason jar crafts are omnipresent. I’ve done a few of my own!
Here are some eco-friendly crafts from recycled glass bottles and jars.
