Re-Purposed Pill Bottle Christmas Tree Ornaments
Now for these guys. Using any of the painted bottles you could paint on a happy snowman or using a peel and stick piece simply stick the item on the pill bottle. ( Great idea for the little ones to do).
The pill bottle with the fork was originally made as a recipe or message holder. I had removed the forks from some to now re-purpose and upcycled item. The artificial flowers came out okay but the fork was not willing.
Be glad to have you stop over to my website and check things out. You can also find out some about Card's Creative Canvases.

I unfortunately have several prescription pill bottles. I too love upcycling and have bags of these. The Christmas ornaments idea is a new one for me. I use the bottles to hide cash in when I want to pass it to someone discreetly when out in the public. The bottles are also where I save coins for the laundermat. Slips easily in my pocket. No need to take my purse or a change/coin purse inside.
I am also a cross stitcher. I enlarge and print out the floss color and symbol codes for the pattern. I cut the information into strips and glue each strip to an individual bottle. As I am completing a project I have a place to neatly store my floss. There is always thread left on the needle so I throw the needle in there too until I need the color again. No lost needles and no confusion about which color floss to use. This is especially useful for projects with several different colors and shades of colors. When the project is completed and there is floss left over, I neatly place the bottles with floss in a utility cart drawer for use later. I include the list floss color numbers so that I know what I have. Saves money from having to purchase a skein of floss that I already have.
