Upcycled Milk Bottles Dollar Bin Challenge

Milk Glass Crafts

A few of my friends and I got together to do a Dollar Bin Challenge. This is where we choose the same dollar bin object and each upcycle it and put our own creative spin on it.  None of us know what the others are doing until the night before our posts are published. For this challenge, we chose milk bottles. These were found in the dollar bin section at Target, two for $3.00. My upcycled milk bottles turned into fall turkeys!

Materials:

These are the milk bottles I used.

First, I dug into my paper scraps bin. Yes I have a paper scraps bin in my craft room.  It comes in handy for SO many projects, plus I don’t waste a lot of paper! I found these great colors.  I liked that some had patterns.

Fall Paper Crafts

I folded each piece of paper in half and made paper feathers. If you need tips on how to make paper feathers, I wrote a post on it!

Aren’t they pretty? To save time, I cut two at a time and it worked beautifully.

Glass Milk Bottle Turkey Feathers

Using a craft punch I cut out three circles per turkey. I also cut out yellow beaks and red turkey wattles.

I spread out the feathers and taped them together with two circles (front and back).

For the turkey’s face I attached the beak and wattle and also added two wiggly eyes.

For a brown turkey you can fill your bottle with chocolate milk! My daughter drank the milk and thought it was the coolest thing ever! These would be great for a fall party or for the kid’s table at Thanksgiving!
