Nice’n useful recycling ideas

Do you love beer?
Do you love wine
We do.
I do.
We love both.

You know when you buy all of those beer bottles and all you re left in the end is the empty glass and the caps? Well, ever thought of using them both for some environmentally free decorations in your house?

Summer is coming and those nice solar lights are now on any shop (BM, poundland, 99P and the like -sorry for the UK focus but I am sure you will find many others in your country). Those nice lights are usually too small or too short to put on your balcony or on a tree. So, why do not put them inside the empty bottle, colour the bottle and put it in your garden or on your tiny balcony when you do a barbecue with friends and family?

Shoud look like this (below)

Now, I know that you are left with the caps. What to do with them? Do you know crochet? Or, are you patient enough to cover them with some nice felt? Well, they could become nice and rather handy pot holders. We have the crocheted ones but there is plenty of examples online on how to make felt pot holders with bottle caps.
So, we have put the felt example we foud online (again below)

And our version which is finely crocheted and can be used in summer, winter, when it s windy, rainy, sunny…anyway, at any time.
