DIY Prescription Bottle Covers

6 Materials
10 Minutes

If you are like me, you might be collecting all your prescription bottles. We know there are so many ways these bottles can be reused. I made these DIY Prescription Bottle Covers using fabric scraps that I was holding onto and I love how cute they turned out. I have so many ideas for using these adorable bottles and am excited to share them with you.

Cut a piece of fabric the length of your prescription bottle and about an inch longer in length. Fold the top and bottom over and stitch together. You can use a sewing machine or stitch it by hand.

Fold the fabric (right side in) and stitch closed. You can hold the fabric around the bottle and mark where you need to stitch together.

Turn the fabric right side out and slide onto the prescription bottle.

These DIY Prescription Bottle Covers are adorable, aren’t they?

You can make these covers to slide over your prescriptions when traveling to hide your personal information.

These empty bottles can be used to hold headphones, bobby pins, safety pins, money, small treasures, lip gloss, buttons, paper clips and batteries.

You can use these bottles for party favors, small gift boxes, holding small craft supplies and so much more.

    How do these cute covers NOT slide off the Rx bottles?

    Ya Pharmacy hospital takes all mine back. I bring them in when my bag is full! You might call your Pharmacy hospital and ask. I try and recycle most things before I throw it away! No harm in asking, right?

    A few friends and I save ours to take to a no-kill animal shelter and they use them to put pills and liquid medicine in, if it is a needed med at the time, when an animal is adopted

      My dog needs med refills every other week and I offered to return them to the vet for reuse, but they declined. They don't want to take the time to sterilize them for reuse. I'll find another good use for the bottles. The ones I get are a pretty blue.
