How do I use bottles instead of recycling?

Could you cover them and add wings to make angels?
Here are some ideas
This is for reusing plastic bottles in general but you should be able to find a few that pertain to glucerna bottles:
You could paint them to make them look like bowling pins, add a proportionately sized ball to create a kid's bowling kit to ensure lots of safe tun! You could make several sets for children's gifts for the upcoming holiday season.
I've also used many plastic bottles to add to the bottom of large plant pots before adding potting soil and plants to keep the pots from being too heavy.
Donate them to a school for art projects.
I use plastic bottles for pegboard. Cut off the top part, punch a hole in the rim about an inch down use peg board hooks to hang paint brushes, small level, scissors in a craft room etc.
here is some info Deb
My first thought was a snow man.
My mother uses some for left over storage of liquids, especially evaporated milk.
If you craft, they are good for bead storage. I write on the top of my bottles so I can at a glance look down and see what is inside without having to pick them up from the storage box where I keep them.
you could also cover the bottles with paper and mod podge and make flower vases out of them
Hi Deb: So many things:) You can cut the top part off and use the bottoms as planters for herbs or small flowers, use them as vases, pencil holders, etc. Here's a site with more ideas. Just left click on the one you want to look at and then click on the blue words and information will come up for you,
I just started saving my plastic creamer bottles, that are similar, to make Santas and snowmen for the holidays.
Here's a cute idea:

Hi Deb, they would make lovely vases or planters and can be sprayed in different colors. Rust-Oleum even has textured spray paint that looks like concrete.
I would remove the label or paint them and turn them into snowmen with a figure like that :)
You could fix a styrene ball on top to become a head. It would need to be fixed onto a sort of cross made from timber? The short top part into the head, the long part into the bottle, while the cross pieces become the shoulders. You could then dress it to become a figurine .You may also want to fix the bottom of the bottle onto a larger base so it is able to stand. Have fun.
Can you bring them to the recycle place? Or you could make them into Christmas angels!
