Cannisters from Plastic Bottles

Another great way to recycle and repurpose plastic bottles... into tea, coffee and sugar containers. If you cut them just right, they are also airtight as well, see fig.C . Think that there is no limit to uses for plastic containers and that's good news. If we can find ways to repurpose and not throw out, that's a big plus for the environment. These nifty containers are perfect for storing almost anything, but I immediately thought of tea, coffee and sugar cannisters. You could also use them in the bathroom for storing small essentials as well. Or let the kids store crayons and small stationary supplies in them. For each cannister you will need 2 plastic bottles. One must be cut as shown in fig.A and one as in fig. B. Use a sharp craft knife to roughly cut the bottle and then a pair of sharp scissors to cut each bottle to the right shape.

 This one repurposes plastic bottles into piggy or cow saving banks.
