recycled bottle pumpkin

The recycled plastic bottle coin purse is one of our most popular features ever, so I’m happy to share this adorable recycled plastic craft with you today! Alessia at Scrap & Craft made these super cute mini pumpkin treat containers out of the bottoms of two recycled plastic bottles. These little cuties can be sent to school in the lunch box, or filled with a special gift and given to a teacher or friend. [how to make a recycled plastic pumpkin container]

Alessia was inspired by these cute recycled plastic apples by Sara at Creative Jewish Mom – also a very cute project idea! You can make either style of container using the same basic construction. [make recycled plastic apple containers]
