Another great use for your old soda bottles is to cut ’em up, color ’em, and heat them into these pretty and colorful beads! What a chic way to celebrate Earth Day! These would be a fun project to make at a crafty get-together with your girlfriends. After the beads are made, have fun making them into funky jewelry. Project via Cut Out & Keep.
